xorg.conf


Hello,

I've upgrade glibc and X11 on my slackbox

bot now the X server bombs out saying:

No input driver matching 'Keyboard'

Now, I know to change this to 'kbd' or 'keyboard'

But this doesnt work. In fact the changes I make in /etc/xorg.conf don't have any effect

If I delete this file is still doesnt make any difference! It still tires to load X and bombs out with the same error :-S

Does anyone know what's wrong here?

It's like the file isn't updating or something. The changes I make to /etc/X11/xorg.conf don't actually make a difference to what is read (even removing it!)

At the top of the section it also says something about:

failed to open listener for inet6

could this be the cheese?

and if so what to do?

Thanks

Of course, I've already done that.

Even if I put totally mad options it still uses the old file.............

It just won't read a new file.

running xorgconfig doesn't do anything.....

sounds like another file is getting in the way. XF86Config-4 maybe? post an ls -l of the /etc/X11 directory.

right

I made a copy of xorg.conf in my /root directory before upgrading x11

for some reason X was using this file as it's config file :-S

I didn't set this....

So I deleted it and now it seems to point back to /etc/X11/xorg.conf

now I am in GTK broken hell!

why did i upgrade :-(
