How to edit the "XF86Config"
- I got a information, that a changing in the XF86Config can get the
wheel of my mouse working. But I have not a clue how to create the
option "ZAxisMapping" "4 5" in the XF86Config... Who can help me???
Thanks very much!
- Hey Guys,
I just wanted to add my $.02 I tried what you said to do and ran hdparm before and after as an experiment.
I actually saw no increase or decrease by diabling cd automount. Man thats weird how three almost identical systems can behave so differently. Gremlins?

Well yes, some people guessed right: that some process running in the
backgroung was constantly checking the cdrom for automounting and
autoplaying cds. But I was still looking at the right process to kill.

Yes it does. Actually tonight, just before your mail, I did exactly the
same thing that you're suggesting, and it worked (acknowledgment: Jeremy
gave me the right hint). I was about to write to the list reporting my
BTW a similar problem occurs in kde if I try to set up analogous
automounting stuff. Anyway now everything is fine and running hdparm -t
/dev/hda returns about 20MB/sec, whereas previously the hd performance was
slowed down to 10MB/sec by this stupid problem. Of course now I have to
mount cds manually from within a shell, but this is perfectly fine to me.
I still wonder what the underlying problem is: could it be related with
scsi emulation? I am only saying this because on my desktop with rh7.3 the
ide cdrom gets mounted automatically without any problem.
But at the end, I guess I will survive without understanding it!
Thanks to everybody
