During the boot up process I have a mouse, works great.  However, when
X starts the mouse goes away.

Here is my xorg.conf file (I had to add the mouse configuration lines):

# Xorg configuration created by system-config-display

Section "ServerLayout"
        Identifier     "single head configuration"
        Screen      0  "Screen0" 0 0

        InputDevice    "Keyboard0" "CoreKeyboard"

        Driver      "kbd"
        Option      "XkbModel" "pc105"
        Option      "XkbLayout" "us+inet"

It seems as though the X configuration tool is not seeing the mouse.
When I switch to run level 4 the console mouse works as expected.    I
get the same results with a PS2 mouse.  I've googled and googled but
after several hours I have found nothing that will help.   I am hoping
someone on this list can point me in the right direction.

Here is my :0.log file:

I have the latest updates installed, the based install (no updates)
had the same issue.

It might be that your mouse is having problems showing. You could try
Option      "HWCursor" "off"
to the xorg.conf file device section.

I thought this problem was happening on NVidia binary drivers. It could also be happening with the X provided one.

Also you need to erase the rhgb that follows the kernel name in /root/grub/grub.conf and then it should work ok. These are both required to get the pointer back.
