    Mouse problems


    Hello

    I was trying to install mandrake 9.0 on a 233 AMD with 64 megs of ram.
    My problem is that while installing my IBM 2 button serial mouse works fine, but when I get to the gnome desktop my mouse doesn't work?

    It hangs for about 10 seconds then moves to where you thought it should
    of?

    Any solutions?

    What driver did you choose for your mouse?

    That's a bit strange. Anyway, open up the file /etc/X11/XF86Config (or XF86Config-4, if you have it), find the "InputDevice" section that corresponds to your mouse, and post it here.

    that corresponds to your mouse
    That can be pretty tuff on a laptop with joystick, touchpad, usb mouse and a ps2 plugged into the docking bay.. i accidentally turned on scroll wheel for the touchpad -> that made all hell break loose
