X Causing Problems (as usual)


Well, I got Arch running on my desktop with all the latest stuff (kernel 2.4.X and KDE installed) but when I launch any X environment, there's a big problem.

Both my mouse and my keyboard won't respond. Even to CTL+ALT+F1 or CTL+ALT+DEL.

Nothing. Nadda. My system acts like its frozen but it isn't because KDE fully loads.....I just can't do anything once I'm in it. The standard X environment has the same problem.

Now, my XFree config file was made using ATI's FireGL drivers (for my Radeon 9800 Pro). Now, I've looked over the file about a hundred times and it's pretty standard stuff.

Identifier "Mouse1"
Driver "mouse"

etc., etc..

So any idea what the problem is here??? I'm completely stumped! I can't figure any of it out!

Thanks everyone!

PS. There are a few WWs and an EE in my XFree log, but they have to do with loading the DRI and nothing to do with input devices.

is this line present in the config file? of course this references
/dev/mouse ----> /dev/psaux
but is this present in your XF86Config file?
if it is and it says device /dev/mouse, is the /dev/mouse pointing to the right place?
I specified /dev/psuax for my setup but any generic XF86Config file generated will point to /dev/mouse which is a symbolic link.

Option "Device" "/dev/psaux"
