USB Mouse Cursor does not diplayed


Hello all Experts,

I have a little problem in my Linux installations, I'm currently using both Mandrake 8.1 and RedHat 7.2 on my Toshiba Setalite 3000-304.
Both of the installations has detected my video driver and my mouse driver as USB Wheel, I use NVIDIA GeForce Go as Video Card and Dexxa Mini Mouse USB.
Before I installed the OSs I checked for the capabilities of my hardware and found everything works under both of the systems.
I had no errors during the installations, but after the installations i had in both system same problem, my mouse pointer does not apear.. which means, the mouse works under both systems and I can scroll, move, click, everything.. but the cursor does not display..
I thought it's a video card problem so I tried to update the video drivers in both systems and nothing came up..
I'm begging you all the Linux Experts to help me.. I need your help to find a solution for me..
Thanks in advanced,
Jeff Cohen

Try adding, Option "SWCursor" "on", to the pointer section of your X config file.
