SubjectRe: XFree86 on linux laptop

Check your /proc/interrupts file and compare it to
your system documentation. I have had problems
on a Toshiba laptop install where the PCMCIA card
services installed before the mouse support, and
the PCMCIA services took over the mouse IRQ.

Mouse support is specified in the XF86Config file,
and the fact that the mouse config shows as supplied
info, not probed info, means that the system might
not really be finding the mouse.

Another potential problem is that sometimes GPM
(general purpose mouse support) conflicts with
XWindows. You may need to remove /etc/rc.d/rc.gpm .

Hope this helps.
