Re: [linrad] Intel 82801E Display Adapter
Thanks for the help. It turned out that /etc/X11R6/XF86Config had the
mouse protocol as IMPS/2, and /etc/vga/svga.conf had the protocol as PS/2.
Now the mouse works just fine and I can begin to try and troubleshoot
problems getting oss to work with the Intel AC-97 Audio Controller.
