Hi there,

after upgrading to aptosid (everything else went smooth, by the way, thank you!) and booting the latest aptosid kernel, my mouse cursor has disappeared. I can still move the mouse and click things, I just don't see where the cursor is. The problem disappears if I use the vesa driver. I have an 855GM video chipset and I usually use the intel driver. Also, the problem is not there with the last sidux kernel.

Any ideas appreciated! Thanks.

did you tried to change the mouse theme in the KDE systemsettings ?

Yes, I did. The mouse cursor is also not even there at the kdm screen, nor is it outside of KDE, e.g. in fluxbox.

interesting! I-du-ed today, but no question about migrating or modifying sources.list...just upgrade of 16 packs or so.

May be, I have to wait for the mirror sync!

Seems to be this bug:

https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=29413

Looks like I am gonna have to wait for the kernel 2.6.36.

Its not unlikely that it will be included in a 2.6.35 patch if it is really in drm-intel-fixes… I would recommend checking the slhs kernel changelog now and then…

Thanks, I will certainly do that. It's not in .slh.8-aptosid yet though.

Try the incoming 4.slh.9 Wink
slh was again faster than legally allowed in a few countries… Smile
