Flickering mouse pointer (nvidia-glx, Etch, amd64)
 
Hi List !

I have a (silly) issue:

I have a Nvidia GeForce 7300.

On a Lenny box, it works "out of the box". On an Etch box, it installs with Vesa, and once you enable contrib & non-free in the sources.list, you can install either "nv" or "nvidia-glx".


I am on my amd64 Etch box. Everything is fine, I use the "nvidia-glx" drivers....

...But my mouse's pointer is flickering when apps are loading (!!!), for instance, when a web-page is loading, or any app (OOo, etc...) is loading...


-Would you guys know how to make the flickering pointer stop ?

Thanks a lot in advance !

I run Etch with the etch nvidia modules et.al. on my EN7300GT silent
with 256 MB video ram on amd64 with an AMD Athlon64 3800+ with 1x 1GB
stick. There is no flicker.

I give this detail incase your problem is a CPU issue. Try running top
with a .25 sec delay and see if there is a resource problem.
