I installed 4.10 with XF86 4.3 and Gnome2 on my IBM Thinkpad 600X laptop,
which has a Neomagic video card. I used ncurses to configure
/etc/X11/XF86Config. Everything went fine except when I brought up Gnome
the mouse pointer was nowhere to be seen. The mouse was working because
when I moved it icons it evidently passed across would light up. The mouse
pointer was invisible.
On the same machine 5.2.1 freezes up when I xinit. Control-Alt-Backspace,
Alt-F2 and all other commands known to me do nothing. To close it I had to
unplug the power cable and remove the battery, not a preferred method to
Red Hat 9 installs and runs perfectly (apart from the Lucent modem), and
Gnome has a mouse pointer! An OS from Redmond which will remain Gnomeless
installs and runs perfectly.
I really like 4.10. How can I make the mouse pointer visible like in Red
