I am trying to get ALSA working, but I can't seem to get things happening. I've been trying for a month (every other day or so) and now I'm twisted around and don't know where to start again. I need help troubleshooting things so that maybe I can get my feet on the ground.
Regarding GLX: I'm trying to get my nvidia drivers working, but I can't seem to get my xorg.conf file working correctly. I've got a GeForce 4200 and an LCD monitor. When I restart X it fails with this information:
Data incomplete in file /etc/X11/xorg.conf
Undefined Device "Generic VGA" referenced by Screen "Screen 1"
(EE) Problem parsing the config file
(EE) error parsing the config file
Fatal server error:
no screens found
I've tried looking on google for information on how to properly set these, I've even read the xorg man page but I couldn't get anything out of it to be successful.
Also in my xorg.conf file I can't seem to get my scroll mouse working either. I'm using a logitech optical mouse that resides on /dev/input/mouse0 and here is my relevant xorg.conf section:
Option "Protocol" "Microsoft"
Option "Device" "/dev/input/mouse0"
Option "Protocol" "auto"
Option "ZAxisMapping" "4 5"
If anyone could help me I'd really appreciate it. I'm running Gentoo if that makes a difference.
