no mouse pointer after changing display resolution in KDE / Slackware 13
after successfully installing Slackware 13, I immediately installed other packages mainly to solve display/freezing issues(see below), I noticed that every time I try to change the display resolution - both from the 'system -> system settings' and from the "plasmoid" -
my mouse cursor would disappear.
now I know it's on the pointer, and not the mouse - I can move the mouse and see "mouse-over" activity, and based on seeing this, even clicking(both left and right) still has effect. In fact, if I were patient enough, I could navigate through my desktop.
I have a Intel 82865g integrated graphics controller, had issues after installing, so I upgraded to the 184.108.40.206 kernel and installed:
libdrm ? 17 ?
