Hi, Please help. My m/c specs are an Intel Pentium3, 600MHz, 319MB RAM, VGA, Logitech 3 btn DE9 connector type mouse. The mouse indicated above is not being recognized; I've tried various tricks from adding entries to /etc/X11/xorg.conf (with various mice driver types and script entries) to trying to create a "*.fdi" file(s) under /etc/<sub-dirs>/ as has been suggested in various fora. However, none of the ideas have worked for me.

The OS that I've installed is from a DVD that accompanies the book, Fedora 14 2011. At the time of installation the mouse was not detected/recognized. Neither did it prompt me to enable/add mouse support for mouse types at the time when you set the locale (Asia/Calcutta) by selecting the relevant TZ (time zone) on the world map that gets displayed. Ironically, the balloon tip suggests that you choose the locale/TZ by clicking the mouse that which hasn't worked for me.I've tried also a fairly recent USB type optical wired mouse (Logitech) and that too doesn't work. The ports work well - the old DE9 type and the USB are in good working condition.Can anyone help me in this regard?

Hey! Can you please try F15 or F16. A lot of development has gone into Anaconda since F14 so maybe the newer versions will work.
