I have installed Mandrake Linux 9.0 recently. I have some problems after installing it.
I have Logitech First Mouse PS2 type mouse. Mandrake detected as PS2 Standard mouse. Problem is, the linux did not detect the mouse SOMETIMES automatically. I have to restart the machine and this time the mouse works.
Also the mouse does not get detected automatically sometimes in windows 98 also. I have to restart again. This happens particularly when restarted to windows from linux directly using shutdown option in login graphical screen.
Some time while booting, Keyboard error occurs. I have to press F1 to continue.
In windows 98, some time I get DLS error which didn't detect DirectX presence.
I have used Mandrake 8.2 priorily without problems of any kind above. I installed the Mandrake 9.0 as new install not as an upgrade. I have not changed any hardwae.
Please help me to find the source of the problem and solution to rectify it.
I get Update ESCD successfully message at the boot time which I didn't notice during Mandrake 8.2.
The mouse was working fine with Mandrake 8.2 Under the same configuration. After Installing 9.0 I do get errors in windows too(Not detecting mouse and Direct X). Mouse is a PS/2 mouse. Some times I get Keyboard error, which goes off after pressing F1.
