    Have you had a look at the pointer device section of Mandrakelinux control center? (menu > system > configuration > configure your computer | then hardware > set up the poionter device). One thing i have to do every time I reinstall (8 or 9th time in my 1st month) is change the port from "ttyS0 / COM1" to "ttyS1 / COM2" (although these are serial ports, so if you're not using a serial mouse you wont have the same options (at least, I don't think so ;- )
    I'd recommend just playing around with these settings until one works. If none do, sorry for wasting your time...

    Hope this helps

    sorry but I didn't say that my mouse is a usb one. It doesn't work with any driver. I think that is a usb problem but with mandrake 9.1 it worked well.
    infact when I run usbview I can't see the usb device (also modem). there are only hub recognized

    I'm afraid I probably can't help then... I've only been using linux for a month or so, and I've never used any USB hardware. Soz

    Hope someone else can come up with a solution.

    Try changing the mouse selection in xorg.conf to /dev/psaux

    let me know what happens.
