Hi, Today I upgraded my system (ports) so I got x.org 7.4 installed. Given the various entries in /usr/ports/UPDATING about the recent updates for xorg I wonder what the correct settings/combinations are for my installation: I've got hald running as per /etc/rc.conf with hald_enable="YES" as well as moused (moused_enable=YES in rc.conf). My login is via console from where I manually start X11 (gnome) via "startx". Here's what I've got in my xorg.conf: # Added after upgrade of X11 Section "ServerFlags" Option "AllowEmptyInput" "false" EndSection the following entries where there even before the upgrade: Section "InputDevice" Identifier "Keyboard0" Driver "kbd" Option "Corekeyboard" Option "XkbModel" "pc105" Option "XkbRules" "xorg" Option "XkbLayout" "de" Option "XkbVariant" "nodeadkeys" EndSection Section "InputDevice" Identifier "Mouse0" Driver "mouse" Option "Protocol" "auto" Option "Device" "/dev/sysmouse" Option "ZAxisMapping" "4 5 6 7" EndSection Here are my questions: o) When I start X it basically works, but then I get out of gnome, ending up at the commandline and start X11 again ("startx"), the screen becomes garbled and everything freezes completely. Not only is any input via the console disabled but also no reaction on already established ssh-sessions - complete lockup. I'm using the "radeonhd" driver for my graphics card is a ATI Radeon HD 2400 XT (RV610 chipset). o) Are the above settings (i.e. AllowEmptyInput and the sections for keyboard/mouse) correct for my combination of hald and moused running? Thanks much in advance for your help, -ewald
Me too. I started a thread a few days ago titled "Restarting new Xorg freezes system". My symptoms are the same as yours. I'm not running hald at all. I'm not using full-blown gnome, just windowmaker. I'm using the "radeon" driver on an ATI HD 4350 I just tried switching to the "vesa" driver, and now I can stop and start X as much as I want with no problems whatsoever. I know that this was not a problem with the "radeon" driver prior to the Xorg update. _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "freebsd-questions-unsubscr...@freebsd.org"
