I have been running Linux for a while: first Slackware 3.0 and currently
RedHat 4.2. Whenever I run startx, X comes up, everything initializes,
but the mouse cursor will not move. About every 1/(alot) tries it does
start working correctly. If I kill gpm, the mouse cursor does move, but
the rest of X does not initialize i.e. black grid in background.
I have the problem under Slackware as well as RedHat. My current X
Version is 3.3.1, upgraded from 3.2. I installed the patches available
from redhat's ftp site, no luck.
My hardware :
S3 Virge Video Card.
I want to find out if this is a known problem, if not , where does one
start to look for possible causes ?
