cursor problem with compiz-fusion and stellarium in Fedora 7


Hi, everyone!

The first time I ran Fedora 7 on my desktop, absolutely everything was working perfectly. Then I replaced it with Fedora 8 and that was a mistake because I had to face a multitude of bugs. So I went back to F7, but now there is a bug with the cursor.

After the install my cursor was invisible, so I added this line in xorg.conf:
Code:
Option  "SWcursor" "True"
and the problem was solved.

After updating and configuring to my taste, I installed compiz-fusion and as I expected, the cursor was buggy. I already had this problem before and it got fixed by removing the SWcursor line in xorg.conf. However, if I do that now, the cursor becomes invisible again. I also tried with this line:
Code:
Option  "HWCursor" "off"
but it didn't fix the bug. I also noticed that the same cursor bug happens when I run Stellarium.

Somebody knows a solution?

My graphic card is a NVIDIA GeForce 6150 + nForce 430, so I run kmod-nvidia. Also I haven't found anything abnormal in Xorg.0.log.


Thank you for your time.

In fact, to be more precise, what I want to know is whether there is another way to solve the invisible cursor problem besides having to add one of those lines in xorg.conf.

Problem solved.

I know it's quite useless to bring back this long dead thread, but I just want to say that my cursor problem kind of got solved on its own. All I did was change my RAM bars today to replace them with stronger ones (went from 2x 512 Mb to 2x 1Gb) and when I booted, suddenly it was all working fine. I could remove the "SWcursor" line from xorg.conf and now I can use Compiz and Stellarium without that annoying bug.

I don't know why, but changing the RAM bars did the trick.

Another mystery.
