Re: mouse pointer disappeared after upgrading to 6.0.1 in GNOME



hi Steven, since the VirtualBox 3.2 cannot built its module on 2.6.38
source, follow the instruction in "Debian Linux Kernel Handbook", I
rebuild the 2.6.34.7 kernel. It is quite strait forward and works, the
result kernel is also smaller than default kernel. maybe u can try it
before Debian issue another upgrade.
