I am sorry I am at a total loss ....usually once i did a new install the problems would be gone. Well if you can commit to Debian, try again in a few days with a new disk burn ( I hope you are using cd-rw's) or just back track to Etch...the stable.

I was using etch before I upgraded...I think it's a problem with the Xserver somehow. I still haven't been able to find drivers to enable 3d acceleration on my NVIDIA 6100. Also I'm using CD-Rs and holy cow only have 4 cds left

Postby nathangrubb » 2007-11-12 06:23

OK a person at Ubuntuforums told me to edit my xorg.conf file because they were having the same problem with gOS (ubuntu with E17) and it fixed it!

oh sorry. here's the answer:
Hmm , interesting problem you got there bud.. I had a simular prob with gOS and this fixed it

Try adding the line I have marked in RED for the device section of xorg.conf.

Code:

Section "Device"
Identifier "nVidia Corporation C51G [GeForce 6100]"
Driver "nvidia"
Option "HWCursor" "off"


and see if there is anything in my mouse section here that will fix it for ya..
Code:

Section "InputDevice"
Identifier "Configured Mouse"
Driver "mouse"
Option "CorePointer" "true"
Option "Device" "/dev/input/mice"
Option "Protocol" "ExplorerPS/2"
Option "ZAxisMapping" "4 5"
Option "Emulate3Buttons" "false"
EndSection
