I've recently upgraded from RH 8 to 9. Everything went fine and as far as I can tell, everything works albeit more slowly.
However, I do experience seemingly random lockups in X. The mouse freezes and if I do a ctrl-alt-bksp to quit X it tries to close applications but eventually freezes without being able to exit or even redraw the screen.
I've been told that this may be a known issue with using an external PS/2 mouse (my TP trackpoint is broken). Has anyone else experienced this?
The only solutions that I've seen proposed were to switch to a serial mouse which I cannot do.
PS On a side note, I have considered replacing the keyboard in order to get a pointer that works. I've used the PDF from IBM to try and disassemble the case and I've taken out every screw they indicate but I'll be darned if I can get the cover off. Has anyone else disassembled their TP? Once the screws are out is there some sort of a release that has to be depressed to make the top bezel pop off?? Thx!
