Display & mouse problem with Fedora on compaq proliant 1600

Hi... i have a compaq proliant 1600 server with the below config.

Pii 350, 256 mb ram, 9.1*4 hdd on raid 5 using smart 2dh raid controller, cirrus logic gd544x display card (on board), logitech keyboard & mouse

firstly when i try to install fedora 4 ... the display goes bad after annaconda runs the xserver. it all breaks & i cannot proceed. on the same box i managed to install fedora 2 and all was ok till i log in...after i log-in to gnome the mouse stops working...the keyboard works...and the pc is ok. the mouse works on the log-in screen...but freezes as soon as i log-in.

i have tried to change the mouse to a nother ps2 & also a serial one...but same result.

kindly advise.

If you want to use FC4, try installing the system in text mode. FC4 has problems with serial mouse.

Use the system-config-mouse in FC2 to try a different mouse configuration. I had problems with mouse in X if the gpm service was enabled, try disabling the gpm service:

chkconfig gpm off
service gpm stop

Use:

system-config-mouse
system-config-display

To change mouse and display configuration. The resolution is almost always given by the monitor type, so, try changing your monitor type.
