This is nuts. Every time I set up Linux on a system that
doesn't have a serial mouse, I can't get X Windows working.
Only this time it's worse.
I installed from Walnut Creek's Slackware 2.3 CD on my Gateway
2000 P75 system at work. Before upgrading the kernel (using
the one on the CD), X came up just fine. The mouse is one of
those 6-pin DIN InPort mice.
Then I upgraded to 1.2.11 (from 1.2.8), and compiled in the
PS/2 feature, as mentioned in the HowTo. No go. When gpm
runs, it acts fine, but if I move the house, the text cursor is
all haywire, and when I attempt to run X, it says Device or
I then went back to the same kernel from the CD... it does the
SAME THING now. What's the deal?
On another machine here, it has an actual Bus Mouse (9 pin
DIN), and the very same thing happens, when using the Bus Mouse
Does anybody know how to make this work??? Please??
