mandy 10 and nforce2


just installed mandy 10 official last ngiht.. glx gears was a super high amount so i think that the ati radeon drivers are working without having to download from ati..
i am getting an error at startup about my nforce 2 sound thing..
running asus a7n8x deluxe.

also i did not see my monitor listed on the selection process during install. viewsonic A72F
i also wanted to know if anyone has any ideas about my mouse..
microsoft intellimouse optical.. has 4 buttons.. i really like using the left thumb button to go back in browsers..
any ideas? i am sure i cannot get drivers from msft for it hehe

im at work so i cannot get message from startup.. about nforce.

but how to install or uninstall or reinstall drivers would help if that is what u all think i need to do.
i just dont know how to do it..

log in as root and run xf86config from console. There are lots of drivers you can choose for your mouse and for what I know Microsoft Intellimouse is listed there.

In Slackware there is a posibility to use a Intellimouse on both PS2 and Serial port. I haven't use Mandrake before, but I heard it is a Red Hat like distribution. If so then you can configure your mouse from the Main Menu. There is an application that does this, I can't remember it's name exactly but I remember it was found somewhere in the system group and it had a very suggestive name, something like Mouse Preferences or Mouse Settings.
Try finding this application. I'm sorry I can't help you more.

You can also set your mouse pointer by manually editing your XF86Config file. For example: my mouse has a scrolling button for the internet. But it is a PS2 mouse which isn't listed in the xfree86 driver list. So I load a simple PS2 mouse and I added the line
Option ZAxisMapping "4 5"
By doing this, my optical PS2 Samsung mouse is fully operational even if it doesn't run on its own driver. Some option must exist for your buttons also but I don't know them all. Try finding information about Options passed to the mouse driver in XF86Config file on the Internet.

Hope I at least gave you some usefull pointers.
