    Suse install help


    I am trying to install suse 10, but I can not get my mouse to work. I can not even get the installation to start because when I have to agree to the terms of use I can not move the pointer to select ‘yes’. I am trying to set up a dual boot with windows and the mouse works fine when I boot in to windows. How can I get the mouse to work?

    Which mouse is it? What is the exact model? Is it connected USB or PS/2?

    It's a GE brand optical mouse WK 1305. It's connected via ps/2. Thanks.

    Does it work connected USB?

    You could try to set the BIOS to "Plug and Play OS = false" so the BIOS detects the mouse properly. Check your PS/2 and mouse settings in the BIOS. But don't mess up the BIOS, be sure to know what you are doing.

    Is that Suse 10.0 you're using? Maybe try Suse 10.1 instead.
