    Make sure and add "nv nvidia" so that you will also get the nv open source driver. It will help out if you update your kernel and are not comfortable with command line. Or if you update to Xorg 7.1. It is nice to have a backup that works.

    Does your xorg.conf have the line 'Load "glx"'? If not, make sure it's there.

    For the second, can you post up your current xorg.conf?

    The mouse issue is odd: your config file has it set up wrong.

    You need to find out where your mouse is. Do this from a console (as root):
    - "cat /dev/psaux"
    - Move your moues around. Does garbage text appear? Great! You found your mouse location.
    - If not, try /dev/input/mouse0, /dev/input/mouse1, etc.

    Once you find your mouse's location, change the line:
    Code:
    Option "Device" "Generic Wheel Mouse"
    to
    Code:
    Option "Device" "< location of mouse >"
    As for the glx issue, run this command as root:
    Code:
    eselect opengl nvidia

    I think you need to add set in there...not sure though...

    so


    eselect set opengl nvidia
    All right, brain. You don't like me and I don't like you, but let's just do this and I can get back to killing you with beer. All New Users Read This!!! If you have a grub problem please look at GRUB MANUAL

    It is actually:
    Code:
    eselect opengl set nvidia
    and

    Code:
    /dev/input/mice
    will cover all the bases for the mouse, and should allow it to start up correctly.
