Re: [vox-tech] Setting up X



Matt, thanks for staying with me

Installing the fonts now, as I type this

I have a plain old 2 button PS2 mouse, when I ran xf86config, I answered
PS2, emulate 3 button, and use /dev/mouse.  I have a link ln -s /dev/psaux
/dev/mouse (because my old install/setup needed this).  I don't think I'm
running GPM, I don't see it under ps (but maybe its called something else).
