I installed the latest incarnation of Debian i386 (4.01R1) and X runs OK
(with no manual fiddling - first time ever, whow). But one problem remains:
My mouse (or rather mice, for I tried several), connected to a PS2 port
run smoothly under Win2K and Knoppix 4 and 5. Unfortunately, they don't
do so under Debian. Instead of gliding continuously over the screen they
rather jump. So everything requiring a mouse, e.g., web browsing,
drawing (tgif, xfig etc.) is almost impossible.
Without going into detail here - mostly because I am completely lost - I
would like to ask for general assistance: What might cause such
behavior, where do I have to tamper with config files if necessary, and
are there some sources on how to solve such problems, read: hardware
works under other flavors, but behaves strangely under debian.
Thanks for any help.
