No mouse - twice :(

Finally downloaded 11.1 to upgrade my old (Compaq P4) system … I got it done, but that was ugly. Why in the world would SaX2 list my Compaq Internet Keyboard as a mouse - and of course not respond to either my real (“intellimouse explorer” compatible) mouse or my Wacom tablet? I had to enable MouseKeys so I could open a Yast window and reconfigure the mouse properly … then when I installed I had to do the same thing again because it didn’t save my changes to the installed system.

This is from the liveCD KDE system, but I really can’t imagine Gnome would have been any different …

Long time openSUSE user, even longer Mandriva user (I dual-boot). Yes, now that I finally got it installed and my mice working it’s nice, but what’s someone else with such a keyboard supposed to do?

PS: anyone remember that setting to get xzgv to work with current window managers? Something about “Ignore ARGB visuals” but I’m forgetting the details just now …
