Problems with X. Keyboard/mouse won't work.


I had to reinstall slack just recently due to slack-get not working as it should (everything it upgraded, it killed in the process :/) and now I can't get X to work properly.

I have the nVidia drivers installed now, and edited the XF86Config file so the nVidia drivers would work.
X Also wouldn't work right before doing this.

What happens is I login, I type startx. I see the usual nVidia logo pop-up and then I see gnome loading. When it's done and I can see the desktop, I'm unable to use either my mouse or keyboard. I can't ctrl+alt+backspace out or anything. :/

One time I was able to hit ctrl+alt+F2 before X loaded and I then went over to tty1 and saw this message sitting there.

Code:
SESSION_MANAGER=local/floodsbox:/tmp/.ICE-unix/1223  
AUDIT: Sat May  8 15:02:39 2004: 1227 X: client 4 rejected from local host
I've ran xf86config a few times and made sure to use the right options.

keyboard is a US keyboard, and the mouse uses USB, so I chose "Auto," since no USB fields were there. Think I also tried PS/2 one time but with no luck..

Any ideas?

Mouse not working?

Well, try editing XF86Config on the Mouse section put this:

Code:
Section "InputDevice"  

    Identifier  "Mouse1"
    Driver      "mouse"
    Option      "Protocol"      "imps/2"
    Option      "Device"        "/dev/mouse"
    Option      "ZAxisMapping"  "4 5"

EndSection
in case your mouse doesn't have scroll just remove the ZAxisMapping line...
if you still have problems with keyboard and mouse try posting here those parts of your InputDevices section...
