Re: First time installation
Hi Kevin and Andreas,
Thanks for your advice.
X-server starts now. But following problems still remain
1) Mouse - optical mouse
Selecting /dev/input/mice, X-server can't start
Selecting /dev/psaux, X-server starts but mouse dies. Toggling between
'init3' and 'init5' impossible. Had to force-reset the PC
Now I am using a PS/2 mouse instead with /dev/psaux setting
# ls -l /dev/cdrom /dev/cdrom -> hda
showing / = /dev/hdc2
# ln -s /dev/hdb /dev/cdrom1
# ls -l /dev/cdrom1
can't mount /dev/cdwriter
I am not sure whether cdrom1 has been symbolic linked to /dev/hdb. If
YES how to remove it to try /dev/hdd etc.
3) # shutdown -h now
is not power down.
Kindly advise how to fix these problems. Thanks in advance.
