I just installed Mandrake 10.1 (from DVD) and am having problems getting my mouse recognized. It is a MS intellimouse optical (has PS/2 and USB support, neither one works).
The mouse worked fine during the install but now in order to get it working I have to use the keyboard to navigate to the mandrake control center, get to the mouse section, and reconfigure it, then it will work (using either PS/2 or USB connection). When the computer is restart, any settings I make here get changed back to the default "Generic USB/PS2" mouse and it is broken again.
I read another post in this forum that talked about what sounded like a very similar problem. That user was able to get his mouse to work (in USB mode) by changing the APIC or ACPI settings in his BOIS. I can't find any such option on my mobo (DFI infinity 875P) BIOS.
Anyone have any ideas on how I can go about getting the mouse to work?
Any help is greatly appreciated.
