Re: XFree86 on potato

Thank you. I am using 2.2.18, compiled from sources from kernel.org. I guess
I'll work on it tonight.

The big question here is: which kernel are you using?  If 2.2.18pre21 (the
latest kernel-image in potato), then see:

That page will help you configure the device files, gpm and X to work with
new input layer, which blends all of the attached mice into a single device.
But read it carefully, some things are not straightforward, such as the
for button-2 and -3 emulation.

If you're not using the 2.2.18pre21, I'm afraid I can't help you, maybe
else.  But because it simplifies a lot of things, I recommend trying to get
to work with the new input layer.
