Jogdial on laptop stopped working after X update

Hi there,

Slackware 10.2 was running great on my Toshiba Satellite 4300. But after applying the 10.2 patches for X11 using slackpkg the jogdial isn't working anymore.

I can't move the mouse pointer in X.

This is what I have:
/dev/mouse is a softlink pointing to /dev/psaux I have no devices in /dev/input/mice. And nothing happens when I move the jogdial after specifying

#cat /dev/mouse

as root. BTW, I have no mouse support on the console, either, so GPM seems to be broken, too. /etc/rc.d/rc.gpm is executable, though.

It's even stranger: The jogdial works in SLAX on the very same machine. Therefore I copied the xorg.conf file created by SLAX to my Slackware system and upgraded to Xorg 6.9, because this is the version the config file was created for. But it didn't help a bit. 8-(

Meanwhile I re-installed the system completely. This was the first time I had to re-install a Linux system that had already been running for weeks flawlessly ever. Thus far I only re-installed because of something not working right after the initial installation.


Can anyone point me to a solution? Any hints welcome! gargamel
