    Conflict between sound card and mouse?


    I installed FC2 on an older Dell computer with an Intel sound card onboard. When I enable sound in the BIOS, my PS/2 mouse ceases to function. Inversely, disabling the sound in the BIOS allows my mouse to work. Detection of the sound card is successful. I assume enabling the sound causes some sort of resource conflict between the two devices, but I don't know where in FC2 to look for it. Can anyone help?

    Euhhhmmm.
    That is weird.
    I don't see any connection between a mouse and and an audio mudule/driver.
    What happens if you make your music(OSS or ALSA) working, while just using the vanilla driver for your mouse?
