The system created during install a xorg.conf.d directory which I renamed. It then creates this directory anew during every start of the x server with only one file in it (90-keytable.conf), which I post below:

Code:
Section "InputClass"
    Identifier "LocalKeyboard"
    MatchIsKeyboard "on"
    Option    "XkbLayout"    "de"
    Option    "XkbVariant"    "nodeadkeys"
EndSection
I simply don't get it. What is wrong here? I will post a working example of xorg.conf below (post shortened so it still fits here). You'll notice that the only difference to the error causing b*stard above is the lack of use of modelines .The xorg.conf.d is present there too. I'd be delighted if anyone could shed some light on this.

Not sure what's wrong here ... I'm not used to the constraints of a "xorg.conf.d".

Maybe, the existence of Modelines makes X into evaluating xorg.conf.d, and there it complains about missing InputClass.

Think primitive ... if X wants InputClass, give him InputClass.

https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Input..._configuration

Edit: btw, I don't remember to ever have seen an explicit "Modes" Section in a xorg.conf

The usual template I know about is:
Code:
Section "Monitor"
	Identifier   "Monitor0"
	VendorName   "Monitor Vendor"
	ModelName    "Monitor Model"
	HorizSync	FROM - TO
	VertRefresh 	FROM - TO
	ModeLine "NAME1"  ...
	ModeLine "NAME2"  ...
        and so on ...
EndSection
When adding InputClass does not help, try this.

Edit2: btw, your _fatal_ error is
Quote:
Fatal server error:
[ 11.794] no screens found
and not "no InputClass found". Move your Modes Section to the bottom of the file to debug this. Not sure whether this helps with the InputClass error, though.

The link you provided explains, that both xorg.conf.d and xorg.conf are evaluated as a big chunk of configuration lines.

Please note the error does not say " missing InputClass" but >>"" is not a valid keyword in this section"<<

Yeah, but I presum(ed) that this is caused by the previous error (EE) with the InputClass since parsing was broken off. I'll try this, too. Thanks for your input.

I was unsure about what you wanted ... an explanation/solution for the InputClass error or just "make things work", thus my staggered reply. Talking about parsing ... unfortunately, parsing usually does not fail at the point where the mistake sits, but _behind_ it.

So, it may be, that X gets confused at your Modes Section, complains about the recoverable error of "no InputClass" und finally fails at the fatal error of "no Screens" - both being _behind_ your Modes Section. This is a guess, though.

That guess has a low probability I'd guess . I posted a abbreviated version of my xorg.conf without the modes section but with identical screen sections (third "CODE" block in my original post) -- which do work.

The reason for all this is my drive for perfektion : I get a default resolution of 1024x798@60 but I want 1280x1024@91, which is realized in the fault-producing version of xorg.conf which I posted in the first place

Nope, please reread.

The error _is_ in the Modes Section, but it _shows_up_ in X not correctly detecting your Input and Screens Sections, later on. So your Screens Section is perfectly okay. So my guess, without knowledge of what exactly might be wrong with the Modes Section.

Well. Well, well, well.

I followed all of your suggestions:
  • I moved the Modes section to the bottom - FAIL
  • Integrated a Modeline into the Monitor part - FAIL
  • I commented the whole section modes out (no section modes at all!) - FAIL
  • I created the InputClass "test" - FAIL
Grrr What now? Thanks for your input btw .

shouldn't this give you exactly the configuration you reported working in your first posting?

Yes, it should. That one I don' get at all.

I preserved the original file. I just rename the files for test or normal booting. Most of the working configuration is in the thread starting post, last "code" block.

I think the error is in the following paragraph:
Code:
Section "InputClass"
    Identifier "LocalKeyboard"
    MatchIsKeyboard "yes"     #on is maybe wrong, on my arch system i have yes 
    Option    "XkbLayout"    "de"
    Option    "XkbVariant"    "nodeadkeys"
EndSection
Maybe it helps?

It is an idea I'll try out. From the man page of xorg.conf:
Code:
...
MatchIsKeyboard "bool"
...
Match device types. These entries take a boolean argument similar to Option entries.

{and}
...
Boolean options may optionally have a value specified. When no value is specified, the option’s value is
TRUE. The following boolean option values are recognised as TRUE:
1, on, true, yes
and the following boolean option values are recognised as FALSE:
0, off, false, no

Note that all Option values, not just strings, must be enclosed in quotes.
So I have not too much hope. But thanks anyhow.

So ... maybe your xorg.conf is all right, but the way you start X is wrong.

You're switching between your working dual-head configuration, and your non-working dual-seat configuration, right?

When you start X with e.g. "Layout0", then X will fail, because there is no "Layout0". X complaining about "no screens found" could be a consequence thereof, though an irritating one.

btw, you wrote about your "drive to perfection". So, make it perfect first. Make a perfectly working dual-head configuration with two screens in one Layout - let's call it "DualLayout". Then add two further layouts - "Seat0" and "Seat1". There is no need for two xorg.conf files, one is enough. Just start either one X with "DualLayout" or two X with "Seat0" and "Seat1".

X has command line options to choose Layouts or even Screens. You should be able to testdrive your configuration without leaving the GUI.
Use xinit on console to test to see additional errors about wrong display numbers etc.
http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=196661

Is there a /var/log/Xorg.1.log? Anything useful inside it? Oh, I just saw, you're trying to sell your Xorg.1.log as Xorg.0.log to us ... recheck your logfiles, please.

Good morning .

No. Both xorg.conf's are mostly identical. The difference is just the "Mode[1]" and "Modelines" part. So the working configuration gives me two seats. One on a LCD with 1680x1050@60 resolution and refresh rate and the second on a 11 year old CRT with 1024x798@60 resolution and refresh rate. I want the latter to change to 1280x1024@90.

I copied the modlines from an old installation (OpenSuSE 8.2? or 10.0?) for this very same CRT into the working xorg.conf and *kaboom* the error I described occurs.

But there is a Section "ServerLayout" with "Seat0". Or I don't get your argument...

Huh? There is a Xorg.0.log a Xorg.1.log and Xorg.2.log. Don't get confused by this, it stems from an erroneous "kdmrc". Xorg.0 is the LCD seat, Xorg.1 from the CRT. I'll post the latest Xorg.1.log below:

Now, I found the? / a? reason for this behaviour. I typed the "modeline" by hand and thus edited my working xorg.conf without copying anything. The error is gone and both displays start up. Only the resolution on the CRT hasn't changed .

I presume there is some character(s) / bytes in the copy which the display can't represent but which get stuck in the x-parser (do you know of any script/command to search for those and print their position and hex value(s)?). Okay, I can type those lines by hand. But why don't they have any impact on the resolution and refresh rate ?

I think I've just found the culprit:

I'll work on that one to get VGA-1 its desired monitor section .

Okay, I didn't get that you already have a working dual-seat configuration.

I supposed you to start e.g. "Layout0" instead of "Seat0", but the idea is invalid due to your above explanation.

Okay, so it's probably just a spelling mistake that you called your Xorg.1.log "Xorg.0.log" in your first posting. The contents of Xorg.0.log would've been interesting too to get some hints on this bug.

This is quite interesting. I see some confusing things, you might want to dig into ... or not ...

So, it's your Xorg.1.log, meant to be driving to your CRT, right? And the CRT is connected to your separate ATI Radeon 5450, running on PCI:01:05:00.

First, it loads the ati driver, as configured in your xorg.conf:
[ 14.168] (II) LoadModule: "ati"
but then, it loads the radeon driver:
[ 14.169] (II) LoadModule: "radeon"
further on, the ati driver doesn't seem to do anything ... it's the radeon driver driving your card:
[ 14.174] (--) RADEON(0): Chipset: "ATI Radeon HD 5450" (ChipID = 0x68f9)

Radeon detects a HDMI monitor:
[ 14.178] (II) RADEON(0): Output HDMI-0 using monitor section MULTI-SCAN G200 (CPD-G200)
Well, acutally I hope, radeon is just detecting the HDMI output and consumes its first (and only) monitor section for this output.

Or is the G200 connected to HDMI via some kind of adapter?

[ 14.192] (II) RADEON(0): Output DVI-0 has no monitor section
[ 14.615] (II) RADEON(0): Output VGA-1 has no monitor section
Okay, radeon seems to want a monitor section for each of it's outputs and is to dump to detect whether there is a monitor connected, beforehand.

[ 15.057] (II) RADEON(0): Not using default mode "640x350" (vrefresh out of range)
Here, radeon starts to disqualify its internal ModeLines ... obviously because HorizSync and VertRefresh do not match. As radeon has not queried the EDID data so far, it does not have a clue about the real HorizSync and VertRefresh rates.
[ 15.057] (II) RADEON(0): Not using default mode "1280x1024" (hsync out of range)
Obviously, your desired mode is a default mode. You shouldn't need your ModeLines, matching HorizSync and VertRefresh rates should be enough.

Now, finally, radeon shows interest in the world outside:
[ 15.057] (II) RADEON(0): Output HDMI-0 disconnected
[ 15.057] (II) RADEON(0): Output DVI-0 disconnected
[ 15.058] (II) RADEON(0): Output VGA-1 connected
Okay, there is no monitor on HDMI-0 so there is no need to consume a screen section for it, but obviously radeon has a different opinion on this. But, finally, radeon detected VGA-1. This happens _after_ radeon decided on whitch ModeLines are usable and whitch are not ... strange thing.

[ 15.059] (II) RADEON(0): GPU accel disabled or not working, using shadowfb for KMS
[ 15.062] (WW) RADEON(0): Direct rendering disabled
[ 15.062] (II) RADEON(0): Acceleration disabled
Doesn't seem as if radeon is the perfect driver for your card.

[ 15.065] (WW) RADEON(0): Option "PreferredMode" is not used
Does this mean, radeon simply does not handle this option?

That would have been my next guess ...

As your xorg.conf looks like it has been copy&pasted from lots of places, it might have happened that you included some malformed whitespaces. Looks like your whole Files, DRI and Modules Sections are dispensable and outdated. But as you reported it working mostly and had it running on a former Suse installation, I assumed a low probability for this.

Some years ago, I spend hours hunting a bug that consisted of some space characters where a Tab should be ... :-/

Unfortunately, no. I'm still looking for a good hex-editor for Linux. I'm still using my good old outdated Hex Workshop in Wine. But there are simple hex-editors for Linux ... it should have a ASCII/Unicode-view and a Hex-view side by side. OpenOffice is unicode-aware and can display irregular whitespaces. And, of course, emacs can do it ... surely ... somehow ... uhm ...

I suppose you to have a wrong and dumb driver running. Either explain to radeon that there is no HDMI-0 and DVI-0, or add dummy Screen Sections for them. Or try to insist on ati driver or try fglrx.
