If USB, you can try unplugging/replugging the mouse. Are you running GPM; if so, you can try "/etc/init.d/gpm restart". You might try unloading/reloading any mouse/USB-related modules.Do you actually have to reboot, or will a restart of X fix it? Or have you tried starting a second session of X to see if it works there? Or in the console (assuming you have GPM installed)?-- Kent
Now I remember why I have gmail on mail lists. never saw my email. :-(USB, I think. It sits plugged in behind the KVM switch. But will try that. Not sure if I tried unplugging/plugging back in.
I will look at gpm as well. I've tried exiting out of X, stopping GDM/KDM, but that does not work. --- Rodney D.
