Default Hardware Cursor not Displaying

When I set Option "HWCursor" "true" in my xorg.conf and start X, my cursor doesn't display, although I can still move it and click things. It works fine with Option "SWCursor" "true".

Default Re: Hardware Cursor not Displaying

A hardware cursor is the default. Are you stating that not using the option at all also fails to generate a cursor?

Have you verified that you're using the latest motherboard BIOS?

Also, note that you're not using the nvidia X driver in your bug report.

Default Re: Hardware Cursor not Displaying

I tried commenting out the cursor option in my xorg.conf, but still got no displayed cursor.

I'm not exactly sure if I have the latest BIOS, but the computer is less than a week old, so it should be up to date.

When I ran nvidia-bug-report the first time, it got the X log file from xorg.0.log, even though the most recent was xorg.1.log. I reran it, and now it doesn't mention the vesa driver.

Thanks for your suggestions.

This bug report has no X log, nor an X configuration.

Please verify that you're using the latest motherboard BIOS.

I went and checked my BIOS version using dmidecode, and it is the latest.

Attached is an X log from an xorg.conf with no cursor option set.
