Fedora 8 mouse invisible issue

I tried to install 64 bit fedora 8 today.

The installation went smoothly. When I came to the login interface, the mouse pointer was invisible. It was so frustrated.

I did some search on internet and  found that this problem appears on 64 bit linux with Nvida display card. So it may be a driver issue.

Fortunately there is a workaround that seems work for me.

gedit /etc/grub.conf

Remove the “rhgb” in the file. Then reboot again, the mouse pointer seems to come back now.
