virtual pc and slackware


I installed the recently released slackware 12 in virtual pc, and the install went well. However I had some problems with X. I already knew virtual PC doesn't support 24 bit graphics, so I edited xorg.conf and choose a default depth of 16. However, the mouse doesn't work. The solution to fixing that was editing lilo.conf and adding "i8042.noloop". This fixes the mouse issue. I still have one issue that I need to solve. When quiting X, the system doesn't return to the shell and freezes. I have to do a reset.
