Xorg configuration


I am trying to setup Xorg and it is giving me errors on speedo, keyboard and mouse.

I know my keyboard and mouse are setup right, but this is my first time setting up Xorg from scratch, so maybe I still need something.

I used xorgcfg -textmode to set things up.

I then ran startx to try and start it, but it failed on speedo, keyboard and mouse.

Any suggestions? Is there a howto somewhere I can follow?

Maybe there is something else I should run besides startx, since I'm not sure if it automatically sets it up or not after configuring with xorgcfg.

Thanks

run from a cli as root "xorgconfig" without the quotes, try that, then "startx" afterwords. If you get the same errors post back

Post the results of "lsmod", it seems as if your keyboard module is not being loaded at start-up

Slovak, I appreciate the replies. I have figured out the problem. The driver for the mouse was not there, plus there was a bug in the install of Xorg from the distro I was using.

Thank you!
