    X Server Mouse Issues


    I'm trying to get X running on my RH9 (2.4.20-8) box, it is claiming that i have some mouse problem which is preventing X from running. this is the O/P i get courtesy of X (from /var/log/XFree86.0.log -
    • (EE) xf86OpenSerial: Cannot open device /dev/psaux Device or resource busy
      (EE) Mouse): cannot open input device
      (EE) PreInit failed for input device "Mouse)" No core Pointer
      Fatal server error
      failed to initialize core devices

    Now I can obviously tell that it's having mouse problems, whats confusing me is that the mice (i have tried 2 different mice) work perfectly on my WinXP machine, and in the RH9 GUI installer on my RH9 box, so i am thinking that there isn't a HW problem. I have tried reinstalling RH9 to a blank disk, but to no avail.

    HW :- logitech wheel PS/2, Genius optical PS/2, RH9 Box - P3 800 128MB Ram with 40GB HDD (with only the OS installed < 2GB)

    Any Assistance Greatly Appreciated

    Maby the settings of your mouse, isnt set properly after the installation.

    please post your XF86Config or xorg.conf File please
