I have finally succeeded in getting X11/Gnome running on my ancient HP Vectra (RH8), but the mouse cursor ends up "stuck" at the top of the display.
Any movement of the mouse in any direction simply results in the pointer moving back and forth along the horizontal axis. The mouse in an HP-branded
MS Mouse-compatible, and I selected Option 1 (for MS Mouse-compatible) in xf86config.
Does anyone have a clue where I blew it?
