  • What Linux distro are you running?

    If things get any worse, I'll have to ask you to stop helping me.

    • Red Hat 7.3 which, by the way, I was relieved to discover, now has Perl 5.6.1 standard instead of the 5.6.0 distro that they included for the longest time. Never could figure out why they left in a known buggy version of Perl.

      Oh, and every set of instructions I've found to get my wheel mouse running has failed, failed, failed. At least on Windows, it just works. I think most who know me are pretty clear that I am not a Microsoft fan (often great products, usually a Bad Company) but their desktop is sha

      • Wow, that's a bummer about the owner's attitude. I guess I'm fortunate, in that one of the first questions my boss asked me on my first day at work was "Which distribution of Linux do you want to run?" Actually, everyone in the Systems group is now running Linux, either as their primary OS or through VMWare.

        That's odd that the wheelmouse isn't working. I'm running Mandrake 8.2, and IIRC, had to make the following change to my /etc/X11/XF86Config-4 file:

        Section "InputDevice"
        Identifier "Mouse1"
        Driver "mouse"
        Option "Protocol" "IMPS/2"
        Option "Device" "/dev/mouse"
        Option "ZAxisMapping" "4 5"

        After that, no problems. I think I may have had to make the same change on RH7.2.
