forgive me for my ignorance, i have only had linux for a day!!!
i have just installed redhat 5.1
i am trying to use xwindows for the first time, so i ran xf86config selected
the option for 2button serial mouse, no middlechord, yes emulation. i use
startx to get me into the x windows environment.
(i chose /dev/mouse as this was the default.....not sure what this means
the graphics are set up correctly but the pointer does not want to move.
when i press ctrl+alt+_backspace i get dropped to the prompt with the error
warning:/dev/mouse unable to get status of mouse fd (input/output error)
can anyone shed any light on what i might be doing wrong to setup xwindows.
if any more info is required, let me know. (i don't have the knowledge to
fault find at all for this system, explicit instruction/explanation will be
thanks in advance....
