i have my system set up on a text-based login
i issued the startx command, everything looked ok
it loaded Gnome, and my mouse wouldnt work
it went to that vterm, and it said
/dev/mouse, file not found
tried rebooting, hoping that it might recognize it on a reload, no such luck
checked /dev, surealy enough, /dev/mouse wasnt there
i also have another question:
everytime i shut down, when i come back up, it tells me the filesystem was not cleanly unmounted, does a disk check, reboots, then i can login
im shutting down with
is this incorrect?
some help would be very nice, if i cant get mandrake to work, how the hell amd i ever gonna learn real linux when i go to slack or gentoo?
