Keyboard and Mouse not working in X
I'm posting this thread, although there are many around there (but no one solved the problem), because, after an upgrade-all, mouse and keyboard stopped working in X under the same kernel and xorg.conf.
Both keyboard and mouse (under gpm) works perfectly in the console, but not in X, and obviously I'm exasperated wondering why.
I tried to reconfigure X with xorgsetup and xorgconfig, reinstalling entirely X.org, reinstalling hal, reinstalling dbus but nothing did the trick.
I'm running a 188.8.131.52 home-compiled kernel with all packages to -current.
Here is my package-brewed xorg.conf[-vesa] (that, I think, should work at least for mouse and keyboard):
I'm really stuck, any suggestion is really appreciated.
Thanks in advance,
Have you verified that HAL is actually running, or that it has been started? If rc.hald chmodded executable?
Try from console as root before starting X:
Does the system work with a default kernel? Maybe you omitted something silly from your kernel? :)
Finally, check the -current changelog to make sure something hasn't changed that would influence this situation.
Best of luck,
And hey wait!! Doesn't HAL need to use the evdev driver? I don't use HAL so I'm not sure about this.
HAL and DBus are working perfectly.
I've solved noticing that the "AllowEmptyInput" was implicitly turned On.
This option makes X.org deactivating all the input devices that are driven by kbd,mouse,[...] drivers.
Was sufficient to add a Option "AllowEmptyInput" "False" to the ServerLayout section to fix the issue.
Thanks to you all,
