I’ve successfully installed Linux onto the main computer, but I’m still having problems with the workstation – to wit, the mouse is just bonkers.

First of all, it’s a serial mouse, not a PS/2 mouse. Second, gpm and X both freeze. It’s weird! X displays happily. No keyboard input, no mouse motion, nothing – not even Ctrl-Alt-Backspace! I have to ssh in to kill the offending process.

The mouse name is “IdealMouse”, so I’ll Google tomorrow and see if there are any issues. Doubt it, though.
