fixing mousy fedora core 5 bug

after an overbearing 2months without mouse cursor and embarking 2nd fc 5 system (dell w/ dual partitioning being done to share with windows vista), i finally caught up and googled around in search for an answer.

after a few different posting, all pointed to comment #20 of https://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=182517.
basically /etc/X11/xorg.conf need to be updated:
adding:
## fehlender cursor, hwcursor off rhb#182517
Option "HWCursor" "off"

to

Section "Device"
Identifier "Videocard0"
Driver "nv"
VendorName "Videocard vendor"
BoardName "nVidia Corporation C51 PCI Express Bridge"
EndSection

to make it:

Section "Device"
Identifier "Videocard0"
Driver "nv"
VendorName "Videocard vendor"
BoardName "nVidia Corporation C51 PCI Express Bridge"
## fehlender cursor, hwcursor off rhb#182517
Option "HWCursor" "off"
EndSection

i was about to be good at sensing where my mouse was pointing to without seeing the cursor points, but seeing it doesn't bother me either. necessary, indeed, is a mother of invention, or in this case a mother of fixing

Thanks, this fixed the same problem in Ubuntu Fiesty for me. on fist boot everything is fine, then log out and bam no more visible cursor, although you could see the effect of the cursor and use it by guessing.
