Bug#627479: linux-patch-debian-2.6.32(?): No mousepointer. Mouse moved but was invisible
Version: Clean network install fri may 20th
Justification: renders package unusable
Installed a fresh debian fri may 20th, network install.
On a Fujitsu Siemens Lifebook C-series
No mouse pointer appeared after install, but mouse worked. Only difficult to
press what desired when mousepointer is invisible.
There is a fix already, but a little cumbersome, and most new users will run
frightened back to their win7 computers...
I had to add the 2 lines below to sources.list ; apt-get update && apt-get
upgrade && reboot

Thanks for your great work!! Debian <3
