    Ah, I was taught a parable from very early on. It is that a distribution which gives you two or more problems is not for you.
    And that Mandriva sucks.
    Yes, that last one was purly subjective.

    There is a driver in 10.1, I think it is something like Universal PS2 or USB

    you should use that one, as it will run any connected mouse. I used to have troubles with individual mouse drivers early on (in 9.0 say). This universal driver is much more stable and more friendly to running the mouse. Also can you post back the results of
    Code:
    lsmod |grep evdev
    (I think...from memory and I don't have much of that.... )
