Hi all,
I have successfully installed Red Hat Liux 6.2 in my system. Now its working alright. But I have a minor problem. I have a SiS6215 display card which is not supported by Linux until now. I used one of magazine's tweaking method and started X. Its coming ok. But the problem is that I dont get Mouse pointer. Instead I am getting a rectangular display there. I have no mourse cursors because of that. Can I rectify it ??? I have a Logitech mouse (3 button). Can I rectify this by any way ???
Thanx in advance

Hi jvijay,
if your graphic card is sis6215c. please do these steps.
1) go to dollar prompt and enter XF86Config
2)u can get interactive mode in this screen at top u have keyboard, card details etc.. click on the card then u will get all avialable cards are suported. In those please select SIS86c15, then go to detailed section about card ram and chip. in this screen, select the chip a SIS..205. and submit the details and color selection 16bpp and mode is 640x480 or 800x640
