I don't know what you want to do with your 1.9.1 code base, but I can say that synaptics 1.3.0 does not work on a Fujitsu T900, and 1.2.2 does. (Slackware 64 13.1 (with Eric's compat32 stuff), I haven't tried a 32-bit version of S13.1.)

Cheers.

Can you file a regression report here: https://bugs.freedesktop.org/buglist...nput-synaptics
and CC "rw@rlworkman.net" on the bug report?

wacom working for anyone?

Having gotten the Synpatics touchpad working by reverting to synaptics driver 1.2.2, now I'd like to get the wacom capability of the screen on this Fujitsu T900 tablet PC.

The wacom stuff works under (*cough*)buntu 10.10.

There is no evidence of xorg trying to load the wacom driver.

Anyone here have a tablet PC who can comment on whether they are getting the wacom stuff to work?

Thanks.

On my 945GME (Acer eMachine), I cannot get OpenGL to work in KDE 4.5.1 with these testing packages, although all is OK on -current with KDE 4.5.1.
Just rebuilt the mesa-7.9 package adding the patch referenced here https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug...iple&id=643399 and now I have OpenGL with the Desktop cube animation working.
This is the diff between the output from 'xdriinfo options i915' before and after.

The output is now the same as that from my -current partition.

Yeah, i requested that from rworkman a couple of days ago.
These xorg packages have been up for so long and gone through so many changes,
a log would make sense.

As a reminder, a few links for those interested in getting news about X and nouveau:

http://blog.gmane.org/gmane.comp.fre....xorg.announce (not really a Changelog but nice to follow X development)
http://ftp.x.org/pub/individual/ - X source tarballs; no one for xf86-video-nouveau yet, alas, so grab it from git:
Code:
git clone git://anongit.freedesktop.org/git/nouveau/xf86-video-nouveau/
cd  xf86-video-nouveau
./autogen.sh ; make ; cp src/.libs/nouveau_drv.so /usr/lib${ARCH}/xorg/modules/drivers
with ARCH="64" for slackware64, else ARCH="". If you already installed a previous version of xf86-video-nouveau, keep it somwhere, just in case
http://www.phoronix.com/scan.php?page=search&q=Nouveau - I'm eager to try nouveau with mesa 7.9
http://nouveau.freedesktop.org/wiki/ - not updated very often

Last news:
http://www.phoronix.com/scan.php?pag...item&px=ODcyNA
All these changes are already in Linus' branch, so I'll download 2.6.37-rc1 as soon as it is released.

EDIT 20101030 09:26 Paris time: we have already 2.6.36-git14, may-be the release candidate will be out today ?? /EDIT

Meanwile I will install Robby's packages, huge thanks for it.

Hello all,

I'm back after having "upgradepkg" Robby's X packages set.

Everything looks good but a few EEs in /var/log/Xorg.0.log:

[ 5631.602] (EE) ioctl EVIOCGNAME failed: Inappropriate ioctl for device
[ 5631.610] (EE) PreInit returned NULL for "HP Laser Mobile Mouse"

This does not prevent X to start nor my mouse and keybord to work though.

I do not know what can cause this ; before installing all Robby's X packages I already used xf86-input-mouse-1.6.0, xf86-input-evdev-2.5.0 and xorg-server-1.9.1 and did not notice these errors.

I append full X log as well as custom /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/50-mouse.conf. Could it be that I should have deleted the section with MatchIsPointer "on" in 10-evdev.conf?

Let me know if I should provide more information.

Oh and a little detail: If I am correct, in file /usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d 'Option "XkbVariant" ""' causes a WW in the X log as the keyboard variant, if indicated, should be set to a valid (not null) string.

Other than that Nouveau is working fine here as you can see in X log.
Code:
bash-4.1# lspci -k|grep -A3 VGA
01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: nVidia Corporation Quadro NVS 140M (rev a1)
        Subsystem: Lenovo ThinkPad T61
        Kernel driver in use: nouveau
        Kernel modules: nouveau, nvidiafb
bash-4.1#
Oh and I use a custom 2.6.36 kernel -- as 2.6.37-rc1 is not released yet

My .config is appended too.

Didier

[EDIT]I just noticed that I shoud have written "InputClass" instead of "InputDevice" in 50-mouse.conf. But after having edited this file and restarted X, mouse stayed in a small rectangle in the middle of the screen. So I deleted that file and the problem remains.[/EDIT]

Didier, are you *sure* that your 50-mouse.conf stub is even required? If the scroll wheel is the only reason you have that, I would expect it to work correctly by default. However, maybe my expectations are bad

Anyway, what I *think* is happening is this: since you defined the device name and identifier, X is looking for them in early startup, but they don't yet exist at that point (hence the preinit NULL). Later on, they show up via the usual detection using udev properties, and all is fine (which is why everything works as expected).

I don't know about that inappropriate ioctl - that one's worth some googling or posting on the xorg mail list.

Can you test with the changes suggested by Peter here: https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=31179

No idea on that, except I know Andrew Psaltis was using some sort of tablet successfully at one point in the past.

You are right, this stub is not required.and deleting it don't change anything. In fact I added it because I saw in googling sombebody suggesting to try to name the device in such a case.

Nope as deleting 50-mouse.conf don't change anything. And reverse (keeping 50.mouse.conf and 90-keyboard-layout.conf but deleting 10-evedev.conf) dind't change anything either: same errors in X log, still keyboard and mouse working properly.

OK Robby, I will further investigate both issues (not knowing if they are related to each other or not). Thanks for your time.
