Hi all,

I recently upgraded my kernel from 3.17.4 to 3.18.5 to 3.19.1 and just tryied 3.19.3 with no love. Somewhere in the upgrade from 3.17.4 to 3.18.5, I lost my mouse cursor with X. It still works, when I use my touch pad, things highlight on the screen, etc. - so I have an invisible mouse cursor which makes things REAL difficult. My current configuration includes:

xorg-server-1.17.1-r1
ati-drivers-15.1
xf86-video-intel-2.20.13 (I can't get anything newer to compile)
i3 window manager

00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation 2nd Generation Core Processor Family Integrated Graphics Controller (rev 09)
01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. [AMD/ATI] Whistler [Radeon HD 6730M/6770M/7690M XT]
- one of the hybrid graphics cards (never again if I can help it)

I have heard the xf96-video-intel can be problematic, but as I said, I can't get it to compile with just uxa past the above version. At this point I am going around in circles, and after an earlier emerge world, I cleaned dependencies and removed all the 3.17 kernel sources which apparently aren't available, so going back and recompiling modules against the working kernel won't work. I am kind of going in circles. I am currently using ssh from another computer so I can cut and paste info.

*sigh* all this because I wanted to try my new 3dConnexions mouse with blender. That was why I went to kernel 3.18.5 - because I needed to add Logitech HID support and didn't have the kernel source any more....

Any help solving would be greatly appreciated. I suppose I will file a bug somewhere if I can't figure it out soon, but where? Following is the usual emege info:

Big surprise - it is the ati-drivers. I installed the opensource radeon/mesa drivers and it works again. I only have openGL3 now, but it will get me by I guess until I can see if they fix it or buy a new computer that doesn't have this muxless hybrid garbage.

I'll go post something on ATI (load of good it will probably do)

If anyone has any ideas, I am going to leave this open. Not that I am opposed to the open source drivers, but I think ATI ought to be able to get their act together.

Thanks!
