Description Denis Leroy 2008-09-08 14:42:22 UTC
As of Fedora 9, the vmmouse driver no longer works as it is not selected by default with input hotplugging. Even with a manual InputSection added to xorg.conf, the driver will behave erratically because of conflict with evdev. The only workaround is to disable evdev by adding the "AutoAddDevices Off" option.
