**Basic Queries****


1)My mouse scroller is not working, how can i make it work even i have selected 3 button (ps/2) mouse.

2)In some keyboard while pressing backspace button it deletes the text, but in some keyboard i have to press it again and again it to delete the letter one by one.

3) How can we open any port, as i have to open swat (901) port for configuring samba server.

4)I have red hat 8 installed, it is working fine earlier, but now when boot up linux, it comes to single mode and doesn't go to graphical mode and gives the following error

"[drm:i830_wait_ring] * ERROR* space 131056 wanted 131064
[drm:i830_wait_ring] * ERROR* lockup" .

5) If I have no internet connection, and then if we put http admin mail id as admin@yahoo.com then it will mail the bugs to given id or not.

6) If I have Red Hat 8 installed and data is there on hard disk, now if i will upgrade it to red hat 9 then , is there will be any effect on data or not.


Thanks for your earliest attention.



Regards,
Akshat

In your /etc/X11/XF86Config file, make the "Input Device" section look like:
Code:
 
        Identifier  "Mouse0"
        Driver      "mouse"
        Option      "Protocol" "IMPS/2"
        Option      "Device" "/dev/mouse"
        Option      "ZAxisMapping" "4 5"
Note the Protocol is IMPS/2, and the ZAxisMapping Line

2)In some keyboard while pressing backspace button it deletes the text, but in some keyboard i have to press it again and again it to delete the letter one by one.
Is your keyboard layout set correctly? Normally it should be US English.
What do you mean "deletes the text", the backspace key always should delete one character at a time to the left of the cursor.

5) If I have no internet connection, and then if we put http admin mail id as admin@yahoo.com then it will mail the bugs to given id or not.
You need an internet connection to send email to a remote server.

6) If I have Red Hat 8 installed and data is there on hard disk, now if i will upgrade it to red hat 9 then , is there will be any effect on data or not.
Is /home on a separate partition? If it is, you can upgrade to RH9 (I suggest Fedora) without losing your data. Just set the mount point of that partition to be /home. If not then you lose your data, but you can always create a backup copy.

I hope this helps
