FC2 problems



I've just gotten FC2 installed on my dual P-III/600mHz machine and have run into some problems. First, grub sat there for 20 minutes without writing the boot record. I eventually gave up and rebooted, and of course had to do a "rescue" and for the life of me I couldn't see how to tell grub to write its boot record, so I gave up and installed lilo instead. Ok, one down.

Now it doesn't want to run X. I have the dreaded nVidia video hardware, but I figured I might be able to use the generic "nv" driver from x.org untill nVidia fixes their binary driver. Not so, but curiously, the log file doesn't show the nv driver to be the problem, but rather the mouse. "Can't find /dev/psaux" (this is a Logitech PS/2 optical wheel mouse that worked fine under XFree86-4.3.0). Needless to say /dev/psaux exists and has appropriate permissions, and the mouse works fine in the console, as well as throughout the entire installation process. I've tired all the plausible mouse configurations offered in the mouse config utility, as well as several implausible ones, including "no mouse." No dice; it still wants to find /dev/psaux.

Finally, it refuses to find my NIS server, so I can only log in as "root."
