zsd: I'm not sure what's going on there. In my experience here, the evdev catchall is applied, but the synaptics driver still overrides it later:
Code:
[130112.099] (II) config/udev: Adding input device SynPS/2 Synaptics TouchPad (/dev/input/event6)
[130112.099] (**) SynPS/2 Synaptics TouchPad: Applying InputClass "evdev touchpad catchall"
[130112.099] (**) SynPS/2 Synaptics TouchPad: Applying InputClass "touchpad"
[130112.099] (II) LoadModule: "synaptics"
[130112.099] (II) Loading /usr/lib64/xorg/modules/input/synaptics_drv.so
[130112.099] (II) Module synaptics: vendor="X.Org Foundation"
[130112.099]    compiled for 1.9.0, module version = 1.3.0
[130112.099]    Module class: X.Org XInput Driver
[130112.099]    ABI class: X.Org XInput driver, version 11.0
[130112.099] (II) Synaptics touchpad driver version 1.3.0
[130112.099] (**) Option "Device" "/dev/input/event6"
[130112.143] (--) SynPS/2 Synaptics TouchPad: x-axis range 1472 - 5598
[130112.143] (--) SynPS/2 Synaptics TouchPad: y-axis range 1408 - 4670
[130112.143] (--) SynPS/2 Synaptics TouchPad: pressure range 0 - 255
[130112.143] (--) SynPS/2 Synaptics TouchPad: finger width range 0 - 15
[130112.143] (--) SynPS/2 Synaptics TouchPad: buttons: left right
[130112.143] (**) Option "TapButton1" "1"
[130112.143] (**) Option "TapButton2" "2"
[130112.143] (**) Option "TapButton3" "3"
...
I notice that Ubuntu uses an older version of the synaptics driver, so maybe it's a regression in that. Perhaps try grabbing the 1.2.2 source and finding out

abrouwers: I saw you guys fussing on IRC about it ;-) so I whipped up a talloc build and rebuilt mesa against it (along with some more patches from mesa git), so I'll be uploaded new stuff soonish.

Thanks RW! Your new xorg set(1.9.1) works fine with Intel HD graphic in the Core i3

However, the synaptic's gesture is still missing... ;(

Is this something that the driver supports? From my (limited) research, it appears to be something that synaptics.com offers in a proprietary driver. I think the open driver supports some of that, but I won't swear to it - I keep my touchpad disabled most of the time

ps: I'm using one external mouse, so it came as mouse2. My old config was suppressed inside xorg.conf.
Thanks for the suggestion. I tried it out, and that did not improve things. I guess the next thing to do is to try the older Synaptics stuff as RW suggested. But I appreciate you taking the time to suggest that.

Besides, http://intellinuxgraphics.org/h264.html introduced a new lib - libva which seems support hardware video decoding. Is there any plan to include it?

maybe in the meantime we can use the slackbuilds.org version

after installing talloc, ldconfig complains
Code:
ldconfig: /usr/lib64/libtalloc.so.2 is not a symbolic link
Code:
# ls -la /usr/lib64/libtalloc.so*
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root    14 2010-09-16 10:17 /usr/lib64/libtalloc.so -> libtalloc.so.2*
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 38928 2010-09-14 20:58 /usr/lib64/libtalloc.so.2*
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 38072 2010-10-25 02:29 /usr/lib64/libtalloc.so.2.0.1*
Code:
# grep libtalloc.so.2 /var/log/packages/*
/var/log/packages/samba-3.5.5-x86_64-1:usr/lib64/libtalloc.so.2
/var/log/packages/talloc-2.0.1-x86_64-2_rlw:usr/lib64/libtalloc.so.2.0.1
I'll try a
Code:
cd /usr/lib64
mv libtalloc.so.2 /tmp/libtalloc.so.2
ln -s libtalloc.so.2.0.1 libtalloc.so.2
and test a little samba to see if it breaks

in the meantime I'll try to build samba over the new libtalloc.

EDIT: sorry, I spotted also this
Code:
# grep talloc /var/log/packages/* | grep include | grep '.h'
/var/log/packages/samba-3.5.5-x86_64-1:usr/include/talloc.h
/var/log/packages/talloc-2.0.1-x86_64-2_rlw:usr/include/talloc.h

looks like samba (that I configured with --enable-external-libtalloc) looks for /usr/lib64/libtalloc.so: if there isn't (like when I removed samba and reinstalled talloc) build breaks while linking to it
Code:
...
creating /tmp/SBo/samba-3.5.5/source3/exports/libwbclient.syms
Linking shared library bin/libwbclient.so.0
/usr/lib64/gcc/x86_64-slackware-linux/4.5.1/../../../../x86_64-slackware-linux/bin/ld: cannot find -ltalloc
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status
make: *** [bin/libwbclient.so.0] Error 1
hand-linking to libtalloc.so.2 make the build go on and package builds fine

now testing time on my girlfriend smb share: she'll surely be enthusiastic, she has all her work in it!

P.S. If you don't see me posting anymore drink a beer to my memory

I'm risking my friggin' life for slackware: this is too "bleeding edge", gotta slow down LOL

Easier said than done, as it turns out. Thre is no configure file in the source I found, so I try
autoconf configure.ac
which gives me

configure.ac:39: error: must install xorg-macros 1.3 or later before running autoconf/autogen
configure.ac:39: the top level
autom4te: /usr/bin/m4 failed with exit status: 1

I've searched the web a bit, but so far no answers. Is this something you've already figured out for which you can tell me? Thanks.

I haven't looked recently, but it didn't appear useful when I did. Is anything else actually using it now?

I've tried build the libva but it seems only support i965. nv users could try vdpau-video backend(does it means driver?...). I tried vlc with/without libva installed but see no significance difference. I think the reason might be alien doesn't build vlc with libva....

There are a lot of work to do if we want to take full use of it... ;(

I do build my VLC with libva support, but indeed for Nvidia cards you have to install libva as well as vdpau-video additionally.

Also, it is critical that the versions of libva which I compiled into VLC and the one you install on your computer are matching. Currently slackbuilds.org offers a newer version of libva than I used, so acceleration does not work then (at least, I am getting library version mismatch errors).
