Arch xorg system..


When i use hwd to configure xorg.config is says
***glibc detected*** corrupted double-linked list : 0x080541e8 ***
/usr/bin/mkxcfg: line 293 P 2690 Aborted lahwd -a -ox -m >$LISTFILE
Your sample file is ready.

T_T

And x server says

Problem parsing the config file
Error parsing the config file

Looking forward for your help

Thank you.

I'm not 100% sure but I believe this could be telling you that there is corrupt code in the application you're trying to run. Most likely it's not an issue with glibc. Perhaps hwd or your config files are corrupted.

Sorry for double-posting but this is hardly an issue to ask about in the Newbie section -- it would be better to put it in the Software forum. Just because someone may be a newbie doesn't mean that their question fits that category.

What's the exact command you're using? if it's hwd -x, did you remember to copy the config file over?

You might have a problem with hwd, try reinstalling it.

also, I would pacman -Syu glibc see if that makes a difference.

The thing is i configured it manually , but i'll try those updates. And reinstalling doesen't help

Well it doesent make any difference. hwd is not workin' still. So i'll just forget about hdw , and do everithing myself. It's even better , because while doing things manually u learn something. It's not like u have to run ur favorite app from console every time , but xorg.conf is something new for me

You could always try te program xorgconfig. It's a script that might help you along the way.

Well the syntax was pretty easy. No spaces . When i had "us , ru" it didn't work , but when u have "us,ru" it works good.
