Description yngguru 1999-03-22 01:44:47 UTC
For StarBucks Redhat Version 5.9 which, I'm assuming is equivalent to rawhide: I have a Pentium II processor on a BX motherboard. I installed the new version of Redhat from the harddrive, and set up my mouse, which is a genius netmouse pro. Now, I know that it is compatible with the imps2 type of gpm, so I set my /etc/sysconfig/mouse to that setting. When I run XF86Setup, I chose not to use the existing setup file as a default template. When XF86Setup loads, I <tab> through to get my mouse working, setting it up as a IMPS/2 on the mouse setup, and 5 buttons. I apply the settings and then change to the keyboard setup with my mouse. I then set the keyboard as a 104-key keyboard, with my mouse, which immediately kills the XF86Setup program and leaves me in X stranded, so that my only alternative is killing X with <ctrl> + <alt> + <backspace>. Now I tried doing the exact opposite, setting my keyboard first and then the mouse, and it worked.

have you tried using Xconfigurator? It has been updated quite a lot in recent months, and probably works as well as, if not better than, XF86Config.
