I have Googled for nVIDIA and found not much. Tried nVIDIA, Linux and found some things but not what I am looking for. All about nVIDIA drivers which work on Windows but not Linux. Will try software pointer.

It took me about two minutes to find the reference.
The solution is to add the line

Option "HWCursor" "false"

to the section of xorg.conf that defines the video card.

I don't know whether that works, though. I'm just going to test it.

Meanwhile, as an extreme kludge, keep moving the mouse as you login. I
find that that works.

It took me about 2 minutes to find the place in xorg.conf which is real short in this computer and added the proper words 8-)

Tomorrow I should have the big RAM cards and they will go in with this hard drive and with luck it will work. Assuming the best I will then be on the new computer with this F7. I will then order a SATA hard drive and learn if dd will let me copy this F7 complete to the new hard drive. That is the long range plan. Then the new computer will be New :-)
