Red Hat 8 Keyboard/Mouse Problem


RH 8 installed perfectly in graphic mode, no problems.

But, now when it boots into X Windows the mouse and keyboard do not respond, at all(caps lock/scoll lock/num lock don't even work). I can get into text mode fine, though.

Here is my xf86config file

# Multiple FontPath entries are allowed (they are concatenated together)
# By default, Red Hat 6.0 and later now use a font server independent of
# the X server to render fonts.

Try changing the mouse to use /dev/psaux if it's a ps2 mouse. For the keyboard check that you have a line something like this..
