    [slack10] Mostly okay, except mouse acts wierd.


    I have a ps/2 mouse that *did* work with slack 9. (its a ps/2 intellimouse)

    Now that slack 10 is installed, I edited my /etc/X11/xorg.conf to use the protocol "IMPS/2". It seems to work, but about a minute into running gnome/kde/anyWM... The cursor freezes. (the mouse will no longer move the cursor)

    The keyboard continues to work fine...

    Any idea what could be causing the conflict? Do you need more information?

    thanks,
    monkey

    is there anything useful at the end of /var/log/messages when the mouse freezes?

    It turned out the mouse had something wrong with it. (Doesn't work in windows either) I tried another ps/2 and it works just fine
