mouse disappears when desktops finishes launching
I have just installed Fedora Core 6 fresh from the Fedora project server.
When i log as root, then "startx", my mouse first appears, but then disappears after initialization of desktop is finished.
I have tried to:
- change the mouse same result
- change from a mouse connected to the mouse port to a new mouse connected on a USB port: same result
- i launched system-config-display instead of the desktop. The window appear, and the mouse functions until i click on anything on the screen, then the mouse disappears.
As a first help, how can i kill the Xserver daemon once it is launched. I would like at least to return to text mode instead of pulling the power cord.
Thanks for your valuable help
