X freezes on mouse click.


X freezes on mouse click. At any time, not too often, but annoying. Mouse is a ps/2, in /dev/ttyS0. I can ssh from another machine and reboot it, so I know the system didn't freeze with it, only X.

Debian is sid, kernel is 2.6.5-1-k7.

This is my XFConfig-4 mouse-related part:


Section "InputDevice"
Identifier "Configured Mouse"
Driver "mouse"
Option "CorePointer"
Option "Device" "/dev/ttyS0"
Option "Protocol" "Microsoft"
Option "Emulate3Buttons" "true"
Option "ZAxisMapping" "4 5"
EndSection

Section "InputDevice"
Identifier "Generic Mouse"
Driver "mouse"
Option "SendCoreEvents" "true"
Option "Device" "/dev/input/mice"
Option "Protocol" "ImPS/2"
Option "Emulate3Buttons" "true"
Option "ZAxisMapping" "4 5"
EndSection


Do you guys see any breach for tweaking here?

What the heck is "ZAxisMapping"?


Thanks!

/dev/ttyS0 seems unusual to me, /dev/input/mice should do for a ps/2 mouse, as in your generic mouse setting.

ZAxismapping is your scrollwheel ;-) It counts for two mousebuttons, scroll forward and backwards.

Thank you for the quick reply!

But which one of these two configs is actually working? The configured or the generic mouse?

I suppose the Configured one. Try different settings with "dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xfree86" for the mouse settings. Let's just hope it is your mouse causing the freeze ;-(
