SDB:No Cursor - Displayproblem with Intel 855 GM

Şuraya atla: kullan, ara


Version 10.1

Problem

Using a Intel 855 GM chipset after the installation the mouse coursor is not visible, possibly the display is messed up.

Workaround

This is a workaround for one of Most Annoying Bugs

First you have to log in as root in a terminal window (Ctrl+Alt+F1) after this you can run the following commands:

init 3
mcedit /etc/X11/xorg.conf

If it's not possible for you to login into plain text console (terminal window) you should start your SUSE Linux in failsafe mode. Then after execution of 'mcedit' command you search (F7)in the xorg.conf file for a section that looks like this:

Section "Device"
 BoardName	"855 GM"
 BusID	        "0:2:0"
 Driver	 "i810"
 Identifier	"Device[0]"
 VendorName 	"Intel"
EndSection

in this section "Device" you enter following parameters before the line "EndSection":

Option "noaccel"
Option "SWcursor"

After saving the settings with F2, you can close the application with F10. Now you run the runlevel 5 wihtin typing the command:

init 5

Now the mouse coursor should be visible and the screen should work properly.
