Try running "mouseconfig" and resetting your mouse settings.  If you are talking about console, and not running X, you just need to start gpm.

Hi,

I had same case with u once. After compared with the other linux server by the following file:

/etc/sysconfig/mouse

The working one contains only 4 lines:

FULLNAME="Generic - 3 Button Mouse (PS/2)"
MOUSETYPE="ps/2"
XEMU3="no"
XMOUSETYPE="PS/2"

And the one not working contains about 5 lines, after I delete that line, it works. However, I forgot what is that line is.

Hope it can help.
