Mouse will not work after install
Posted on 2001-06-20
I've installed Mandrake Linux 8.0 on my pc and the mouse does not work. I installed linux with no problems twice, with my ps-2 mouse attached, with a selection of generic ps-2 mouse, and the second time with the selection of Logitech PS-2 mouse. (Win 2000 recogizes the mouse as logitech). (The mouse is actually a Fellowes PS-2 mouse). During the actual istall, the mouse does work, moves around, and lets me select things. When the install is complete, and the machine reboots, I log in using my username, the machine goes through it's boot up, and the mouse pointer stays in one spot. I've tried to use the tab, etc to change the mouse during the actual running of linux, but I can't seem to get to the actual spot to change the mouse. HELP!!
My machine specs:
Maxtor 15 gig primary "C" drive, with D, and E partitions - Win98SE
Maxtor 30 gig slave "D" drive with two partitions, Win 2000, (20 gig) and Linux (~10 gig).
AMD K6-3 450
196 Meg ram, Nvidia 32 meg pci video card, ASUS P5A-B motherboard, with ALI chipset.
If anyone can help, I would appreciate it. Also please note that I am a real novice when it comes to linux!
