I’m having a very strange problem with my new install of QNX 6.3 professional edition. When I boot to the login screen, I can use my PS2 mouse no problem. However, once I log in, the mouse ceases to function - sortof. When I move the physical mouse, the mouse on the screen twitches, the CPU monitor goes to 100% utilization . . . and nothing else happens - no other input is accepted for five seconds. Five seconds (approx) later, the mouse “dissapears” (I usually can find it embedded in one of the edges of the screen) and the system is apparently back to “normal” - until I try to move the mouse again.
I am running this with an AMD 3200+ on an Asus motherboard. PS2 keyboard (which works fine) and PS2 mouse (which doesn’t). Both the keyboard and the mouse have been recently used in other systems, so they are known good hardware.
Has anyone else seen this behavior?
