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