Subject: [gentoo-user] no mouse nor keyboard on X
Date: Sat, 08 May 2010 12:48:59
1 Hi, guys,
3 After quite a long update list of packages (100+) and a reboot, I could not
4 work in any window or desktop manager I have installed.
6 I rebooted (the ACPI power switch worked fine) and managed to get
7 interactive action during the init scripts and did not allowed "xdm" to
8 start.
10 Then I was able to use normaly the keyboard and mouse ("gpm"). Forced
11 reinstall of xorg-server, xorg-drivers, xorg-cf-files, xdm, kdm (also, in my
12 case, nvidia-drivers) and tryed to use Window Maker - no mouse movements,
13 although the pointer was there, and no visible keyboard effect.
15 Any hints on how to get things back?
17 Thanks
18 Francisco
