Hi, I'm using the current release of Damn Small Linux on a thin client of about 2005 vintage with what seems to be fairly standard hardware, running a Via Eden processor. It's booting from a CF card. I have a standard PS/2 keyboard and PS/2 mouse attached. The boot process seems to go fine, and even detects the mouse on /dev/psaux. However, once it boots into X, the mouse will move a tiny bit, then it refuses to move again. The keyboard does work however.
I've tried plugging in a USB mouse, and tried every setting by running "dsl xsetup" and no change. I know the mouse works because the software on the original CF card with the thin client's original useless software uses the mouse fine.
BTW, I am trying to post on DSL's forums but having trouble doing so. Maybe someone here can provide some input in the mean time.
