    mouse nightmare

    Hi everybody thanks for your time, my English is limited but i hope that you would understand me....

    I've installed Slackware 10.2, OS is great except my mouse trouble. I am using A4 tech PS/2 mouse and default bare.i kernel. On first boot mouse worked great, but after i've made changes in /etc/fstab by changing one of partition to mount "auto" or changing /etc/inittab from "3" to "4", after executing startx message greets me with something like "No core input device", (or device or resource busy until I turned off gpm with chmod -x). I've reinstalled both Slack 10.1 and 10.2 several time and everytime when i change some of configuration file(properly ofcourse) mouse isn't working. I tried mouseconfig as well as xorgconf and loading IPMS driver but in the end, my mouse is dead. I am very confused none of this "silly thing" didn't happend on earlier distribution of linux that i have used, and I woud like to use Slackware in the future so if you have any idea/suggestion what should i do or what might i have done wrong......

    SW install mouse

    Try not using gpm. Don't change to inittab 4 until all is working ok. Try xorgsetup and see what you get. You can look at /etc/X11/xorg.conf from working config( which yousaved) with one with problems. pico is simple editor you can use. Get xorg and mouse working before making any more changes.
    Bitbenderforums has great step by step SW install tutorial as well as Good luck with next install/config. My 1st installs took more than 10 tries before being successful.
