cursor is missing.

Please upgrade to our XFree86 4.1.0-15 release, and see if the problem is fixed
in the new packages.  If the problem persists, try adding the following option
to your XF86Config-4 to try and workaround the problem:

Option "swcursor"

Do either one of these solutions solve the problem for you?
Comment 5 Mike A. Harris 2002-05-17 20:20:27 EDT
Closing bug as fixed in CURRENTRELEASE of Red Hat Linux 7.3 as I'm unable to
reproduce the problem in 4.2.0.  If the problem persists for you in RHL 7.3,
please try the above suggestions and report back.
