Re: mouse pointer disappeared after upgrading to 6.0.1 in GNOME

That is possible.  I just assumed that my sources.list was correct.  Does this look right?

steven@debtop:~$ cat /etc/apt/sources.list
deb http://debian.uchicago.edu/debian/ squeeze main contrib non-free
deb-src http://debian.uchicago.edu/debian/ squeeze main

deb http://security.debian.org/ squeeze/updates main
deb-src http://security.debian.org/ squeeze/updates main

deb http://debian-multimedia.org/ squeeze main non-free

I am not crazy about the non-free, but I needed it for the b43 driver.  Broadcomm joined the Linux Foundation and opened up a lot of their newer drivers, but somehow the old ones are still non-free as far as I know(this is an old laptop)

and the non-free from multimedia:  I need adobe flash for work, because gNash doesn't quite get it done. and w32codecs comes in handy too.

You are several upgrades behind the current, stable virtualbox.
Possibly you didn't change your sources.list entry back in November -
else you would be running 4.x vb.
