Summary: Fix found, no conclusive explanation yet.
After reboot, a previously working system would freeze mouse and
keyboard on startx (or gpm).
I swapped the PS/2 mouse for an old serial mouse. X works
fine. Quickcam driver, ndiswrapper and M$ wireless card driver,
mplayer all coexisting. Sigh.
Guess I need to:
+ test that mouse on another machine.
+ test the machine with another PS/2 mouse.
neither of which is possible just at the moment.
Thanks all for the suggestions. I tried many of them, including
booting a Knoppix CD. Mouse & keyboard behaved slightly differently
but still froze up.
Good progress on the garden but we're a week behind because of the
rain. Huff, huff.
