mouse config
Okay, I am very new to linux. I need to know how to reconfigure x, specificly my mouse. I just installed Slackware 8 on a 166 K5 and I am using a serial mouse and I used the standard microsoft serial mouse driver but when I went into x as soon as I touch the mouse it went into the top right conder and wouldn't move. This mouse worked fine when I was using Windows and when using the QNX floppy demo. So, am I using the wrong driver? If so which one do I use?

to reconfigure X, type xf86config at the command. for your mouse, you could try a generic mouse driver and not the microsoft driver.

just to add on to trickykid, i always use a generic driver for my mouse no matter what brand the mouse actually is

Okay, I'll try that. I will let you know if it dosn't work, thanks.

still having problems...
Well, first off their is no generic serial mouse option. So I tried the bus and ps2 drivers with no luck. Any more suggestions?

I got the SAME PROBLEM!?!?!?! I tried every mouse option. i have a cheap Tech Solution 3 dollar serial mouse....... When it loads into STARTX the mouse will move the second I touch it but it goes 1 inch from the upper right corner and stays there.....

Ive used every mouse option ps2,serial 2 or 3 button,logitech,wacom... and all the com ports 1-4.......

Does anyone know how to fix this???????????
Using Slackware 8.1
