I had a few problems with X below, but first it is compiling everything fine including Firefox, so I think I've had hardware problems causing many of my past issues. Apologies for several likely unneeded questions before figuring this out, and ignore compiling problems from my threads for others searching the list. I tried to put together the assorted answers from X questions from me and Henrique to get this going using evdev: Along with the Xorg package I installed xf86-video-intel, and xf86-input-evdev. I added LOAD "intel" to the end of /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/20-modules.conf, and I used the mdev.conf from https://github.com/slashbeast/mdev-like-a-boss, copied to /etc/mdev.conf I tried starting X between each of these additions with startx not as root and looking at the /var/log/Xorg.0.log I'm seeing that it is saying it failed to load module "intel" The message said "Failed to load /lib/xorg/modules/drivers/intel_drv.so: Error relocating /lib/xorg/modules/drivers/intel_drv.so I810InitMC: symbol not found" I'm not sure that was the problem but I loaded xf86-video-vesa and now Xorg is working with the vesa generic driver, which is fine with me. However, if anyone has recomendations on kicking it up from vesa, or if improving the work flow above, I'd appreciate it. Thanks, Will Content of type "text/html" skipped
