random mouse clicks SuSE 9.3
I've recently installed SuSE 9.3 Pro (from downloaded CD images) onto my Gericom "Webgine" Notebook. I now have a problem of my mouse pointer regularly going bananas:
Frequently, when i move the pointer onto a KDE-widget, it hangs briefly. If i move the mouse, movements are either exaggerated by the pointer (often putting it to the edge of the screen), or interpreted as clicks/doubleclicks, or both. If I react quickly enough and keep the mouse still for a second or two, it goes back to normal, until next time. I also noticed that the CPU fan speed increases briefly whenever the mouse comes back from "crazy" mode. I have never had this problem on the KDE graphical login screen, only in a user session
I don't think it has to do with the mouse hardware or driver, because this happens with both the internal touchpad and an external PS2 mouse (Genius optical wheelmouse, operated in parallel with the touchpad - both working well under WinXP), and also pretty much regardless of which mousedriver is installed (even "2-button PS2 mouse"), as long as it works at all.
It appeared to become less frequent but more more violent after I enabled both serial ports in the BIOS (before, only one had been enabled and shared with IrDA). Disabling IrDa support with YAST, or setting it to halfduplex in the BIOS didn't help.
PS: Sorry for not providing any config files - bit difficult to post or even transfer files from that machine
