I'm new (again) to Fedora (FC5) and once again a problem I had way back when I used Fedora 1 is back again. I have a Toshiba laptop that has a little nub of a mouse pointer. It drives me crazy so, I have an optical mouse that I plug into the ps/2 port. If I plug the ps/2 mouse in when I boot, the mouse acts CRAZY and uncontrollable. If I unplug it and wait about 2 seconds my built in mouse thing works again. Then I can plug the ps/2 mouse back in and there are no problems. I have my xorg.conf file setup the EXACT same way (with regards to the mouse) as I had when I was running Slackware. When I was running Slackware the mouse "just worked." Now the mouse is acting weird. Can someone please help?
I've been using KDE exclusively for about 2 years now so, I am getting used to Gnome again. I like how it has improved since I last used it. One oddity I noticed is that sometimes when I launch a program from my Administration section (I don't believe it is limited to just those apps) a small dialog box pops up for a fraction of a second and the only thing I see is "warning" in the title bar. The app works fine, but what is with the "warning" that flashes on the screen?
Lastly, I tried setting up my PCMCIA network card using the network configuration tool and it froze up my computer when it booted up. I saved my rc.wireless from my Slackware install. Are there still rc.wireless, rc.firewall, rc.M, etc on Fedora systems?
