Hi,

(I did a emerge -e world with the "world"-file from my 32bit
system...)

my 64bit-root is finally up and running and X is up also.

Hurray! :)

But there some strange problems...

Sigh... :-{

1.) The fonts of mrxvt are microscopic tiny...my home and .mrxvt 
    remained the same. Are fonts not reported to "world" when emerged?
    What are the basic fonts I need before buying new glasses?

2.) Mouse does not work. Hald is up, fdi-rules are copied from my old
    system, /dev/input/mice is there, gpm (started for a test) sees
    the mouse, xf86-input-mouse is recompiled, dbus is running.
    What's wrong? X.org.log reports "no device defined for mouse"...
    my xorg.conf does not define such...but it is the same xorg.conf,
    which works under 32bit env.
    So....

3.) Keyboard behaves somehow strange. German Umlauts works, but "|"
    does not...it performs something like a crazy backspace or so.
    And a UNIX without a working pipe is not really making me happy...

4.) As someone already reports to the list: k3b does not find any
    burner, cdrom, dvd-drive. /dev/sr0 exist and is linked to dvd.
    I even can boot from dvd...
    Somehow I "feel" dbus is guilty but this is more a paranormal
    input ;) than anything related to system administration.
    This did work with an older version of dbus on my old system.
    But I cannot stay with this older version, since emerge claims
    to need it for other installs....

As always I will be very happy for help. Thank you very much in
advance!

Best regards
mcc
