>  http://lists.freebsd.org/pipermail/freebsd-x11/2009-April/008185.html Thanks for the link. I was aware that xorg now uses hal but I didn't realise I would need to make any configuration adjustments to hal. Adding the keyboard details to /usr/local/share/hal/fdi/policy/10osvendor/10-x11-input.fdi as described in the link fixed the problem. I was also able to get the keyboard working correctly without hal and dbus by adding Option "AllowEmptyInput" "off" to xorg.conf. Since hal doesn't appear to usefully do anything else for me I've gone for the AllowEmptyInput option. I still need to fix my problem with the nv and nvidia drivers but I've discovered that things work OK with the vesa driver so I'll use that for now. -- Mike Clarke _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "freebsd-questions-unsubscr...@freebsd.org"
