I had the same issue with the wheel mouse. I couldn't get it to work on red hat 8.0. I tried a bunch of different things. However, whe I upgraded to red hat 9.0 and it automatically worked. Thats just one of many little things that have made me much happier running red hat 9.0 than 8.0. J

lmao, things look to be ticking over nicely..... As for hijacked threads, stick em up !!!!!!!!

Slack - Not easy to install = Bollocks !!! Stop by step all the way!!!

Slack - No scroll mouse = DUH!!! Just gave out config !!!

The comment about " I upgraded from 8 to 9 and my mouse works" just says to me, re-install windows, you're not interested in what linux is actually about !!!

Don't mean to be a whiner, but when i started linux, i read read and read some more, jumped in at deep end, and now........ Gawd i'm happy, i know what my box is doing, how to make it do what i want it to etc etc etc.... It just seems to me that a lot of the noobs are going back to windows mentality. If you want it nice and easy and wizardlike, install an MS product. I've been tinkering with pc's for years now, and do it for a living, and my reasons for liking linux are not because "i wanna ditch sucky windows". A comment like that is just demonstrating my point further. You need to know WHY your using linux, and WHAT FOR!!

Me, beacuse it's fast, configurable, free, and STABLE!!! And the beauty is, if it does'nt do what you want, MAKE IT!!!

We need the boost, we need the users, but pls pls pls, for the right reasons.


Sorry bout the rant heheheh

Keep it penguined!!

Yes you want a swap partition , roughly double the size of your RAM. Also make sure it's the first partition on the disk, as it will speed up your swap time !!

Hi!!!

Welcome my friend .

* Well, I dunno if anyone has already answered, but about the mouse problem... I had the very same problem under Redhat 7.3. Go into /usr/sbin/ and run mouseconfig there. Choose microsoft intelimouse. That should work, maybe... possibly, probably .

This is precisely what's wrong as i mentioned earlier in the thread.. You spoon feed people enough and sooner or later they turn into jibbering idiots. Wizard reliant windows users who are only doing this for trend reasons. Linux is not a Versace shirt, it's an operating system, and it's a bloody good one. But please, open your eye's and read what it's about, it is not windows and it DOES require reading manuals, thought and planning. If you cannot even read a help thread with spoonfed information, DO NOT install linux. Windows is not trash, it's there for YOU people, people who want to turn on, have an experience and leave.

Sheesh...

Sorry for ranting, but it really grates when you try and help someone who is not interested in thinking for themselves. Or even helping themselves. I can't be the only person who see's things this way...

I think you should go easier into new users. Just because you have a point of view, others has the right to disagree or agree, and you've to accept it. Being agressive or enraged won't prove you are right. They are trying to learn something new and you are pressing too much, saying to go back to Windows and it's wizards if it's to use a good Distro as Redhat... Give them a time

Besides, I do, read the topics and note that my mouse fix is not the same as yours....
SO PLEASE DON'T SHOUT AT ME OR I WILL SCREAM BACK OK...

OK folks - here's what I learned in the last six months.

* Buy a second HDD if you want to live with Linux and Windows on the same pc. Install Windows first, then Linux. My Windows version is XP - and RH9 Linux. Needed to install the GRUB bootloader on the MBR for Windows (HDA1) for a super-smooth boot option screen at start-up.

* Stayed with NTFS and mounted all my 4 Windows partitions. Create new folders in the MNT folder (mine are win-e, win-d, win-e, win-f) and then edit fstab to mount a different partition on hda1 to each. Then sent shortcuts to the desktop for super-fast access.

* Burned a CD with X CD Roast, and the acid test, read the files in Windows. Sooper. Not quite there with DVDs yet, I got the prodvd plug in and installed, but ... well, no success yet.

* Abandoned Ximian Evolution until 2.0 comes out. Thunderbird R Go on my machine in both 'Dows and RH. Next project is to share the directory for emails, instead of relying on IMAP. Have to wait for NTFS write software in RH9 (or switch distros eventually, or reformat my HDA drive in VFAT).

* Found mplayer. Can't live without it.

* Discovered xmule although I ain't as hooked on downloading any more.

* Set up my domain so I'm not localhost.localdomain any more.

And how did I do all this? These forums, plus Google. And strong espresso.

Nesjo
