Description Chris Evans 1998-12-23 23:58:04 UTC
The installer prompts the user for mouse type. In my case
this is a PS2 mouse and it is autodetected.

The installer uses this information to configure
- X windows
- gpm

However there is a third place that needs configuring that
the installer forgets,
- SVGAlib (/etc/vga/libvga.config)

Without this fix a user has to know how to manually fix
svgalib by editing the textual config file. Messy. And the
user is deprived of quake :-)
