Re: newby --flaky mouse question
I had this problem once and finally tracked it down to using the wrong
Protocol. Try switching the protocol to something else like
ExplorerPS/2 or something else.

the other OS is redhat 7.0, and the same mouse and keyboard work perfectly
well when I boot redhat, so I don't think it is a hardware issue.
I have no idea where to start to try to fix this. The mouse is a microsoft
intellimouse (a PS/2 wheelmouse-- 2 buttons and a wheel).
the mouse lines from my XF86Config-4 file (typed not copied) are:
Section "Input Device"
Identifier "Configured Mouse"
Option "Device" "/dev/psaux"
Option "Protocol" "ImPS/2"
Option "Emulate3Buttons" "true"
Option "ZAxisMapping" "4 5"
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated... --Bill
