Hello,

finally I found time to upgrade to xorg-x11 7.0.0 rc4. This time,  
migration went fine.

Now  could try the intructions of

. Basically, it works out of the box.
However, the evdev lacks Xkb support. Therefore, you are limited to the  
english keyboard layout. For my setup, I require two different layouts my  
own customized dvorak and a german layout for the second seat). As the  
implementaiton of the evdev driver is straight forward, I modified the  
driver to reflect my layouts.

The second downside of this migration occurs when using more than one  
monitor/screen/... per seat. I wanted to use 4 for the 1st seat and 1 for  
the second. Everything starts fine and works good. -- At least until any  
of those displays of seat one are used that are :0.0 (i.e.: :0.1, :0.2,  
:0.3). If I move the cursor to any such display, the 1st seat hangs. If I  
use the second seat to start an xterm on such a display, the 1st seat  
hangs.

The synopsis:
If you use one display per seat, everything works out of the box. If you  
do not want to mess with the evdev driver, you are bound to an english  
keyboard layout.


Kind regards,
Christian
