I just installed a copy of 12@363433 from the install media.
I then pkg installed everything I intended to use.
After installing Xorg-server,nvidia-driver,xf86-input-keyboard,
xf86-input-mouse. I fired
examined the output in both /var/Xorg.o.log && ~/xorg.conf.new
everything appeared to be in order. So I fired off a
Xorg -config ~/xorg.conf.new -retro
While I got the familiar background mesh (-retro), and the
keyboard functioned correctly. The mouse doesn't work.
[85.337] (II) config/udev: Adding input device IntelliMouse Explorer (/dev/input/event4)
[85.337] (II) No input driver specified, ignoring this device.
[85.337] (II) This device may have been added with another device file.
OK I've been following CURRENT, and was aware of that. As I
needed it the first time around with the new Xorg. But I
hadn't imagined I would require any outside helpers on STABLE. :(
Anyway. I managed to get a working xorg.conf.new running against
Xorg -config. So I added only what I thought I absolutely needed
to /usr/local/X11/xorg.conf.d/ and fired up startx with my chosen
DE in .xinitrc. Only to find I _still_ had no mouse, nor control
of the WM. My only recourse was to bounce the box. :-(
I had to scrub the pool, and blow away all the X related things
in ~/ && try again. I was finally successful after creating the
following 4 files:
Identifier "X.org Configured"
Option "AutoAddDevices" "Off"
Option "Log" "sync"
VendorName "Monitor Vendor"
ModelName "Monitor Model"
Option "XkbOptions" "terminate:ctrl_alt_bksp"
Altho the keyboard-zap.conf is probably unnecessary. I added
it in hopes of being able to bail out as opposed to bouncing
I can't believe what a disappointment X has become. It's almost
a different incantation for every install. I'd understand on
CURRENT/release. But not on STABLE.
I'm very grateful for your lending a hand, Mark. I don't
mean to point any of my frustration at/towards you. :-)
