The you have a Mouse Pointer Problem(mouse stick top left)here is the solution.


If you have this problem, you should updated your driver and read the README file.

I solved the problem for a MSI GeForce4 MX-420
First thing to do is
Download the NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-4363.run from http://download.nvidia.com/XFree86/...86-1.0-4363.run

then go to the folder where you download it and type
sh NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-4363.run

After you got to edit(vi /etc/X11/XF86Config-4) the XF86Config-4 and replace this(INSERT key to make some change)

Driver "nv"
(or Driver "vesa")

with

Driver "nvidia"

In the Module section, make sure you have:

Load "glx"

You should also remove the following lines:

Load "dri"
Load "GLcore"
(copy pasted from the README at Driver "nv"
(or Driver "vesa")

with

Driver "nvidia"

In the Module section, make sure you have:

Load "glx"

You should also remove the following lines:

Load "dri"
Load "GLcore"
After doing the change do

Esc
:wq! #to save and quit
Then restart the Xserver by using startx

This is how I solve the problem. But I notice when I go back to a tty shell by going Ctrl+Atl+# the screen have some trouble to refresh it.
