Hey,

I have two annoying problems that I would like to fix. The first problem has to do with my keyboard. Whenever I initially boot up, and get to the console screen I run into an issue when typing. I can type 3 characters into the login and then my keyboard just randomly stops until I press enter. After that I press enter twice to retype my login name and then everything works fine for a little while. This happens with all keyboards I use on the computer. Once I get in X, my keyboard works just fine. I am running openrc-0.11.5, pam-1.1.5, and shadow-4.1.4.3.

My second question has to do with dual monitors and framebuffer. Is it possible to do or at least have my second monitor replicate my first monitor? My second monitor does nothing right now. They both are connected via VGA. Currently in my grub.conf file I have:
video=uvesafb:1280x1024-32,mtrr:3,ywrap

Running grub-static 0.97

emerge --info :

It appears you either have a wealth of video cards or you have not configured your VIDEO_CARDS variable correctly. What video card do you use? What kernel driver do you use for it?

Hu,

I use an nvidia video card. I did change the VIDEO_CARDS and INPUT_DEVICES to nvidia and evdev respectively. I did an update to my entire system, and that still didn't seem to work in either problems. I tend to also wonder if I am not setting a correct USE flag for the DirectFB package.

Here is my current emerge --info

So I sort of figured out the issues that I was faced after quiet a bit of research and trial and error. Dual monitor framebuffer is not possible when using uvesafb or vesafb and the linux nvidia drivers. Nouvea driver worked just fine with dual monitors under framebuffer and replicated the screen on my second monitor just fine. But... I needed the nvidia drivers in order to ave real 3d support when playing games. You can switch between the two, but you can't use nouvea for framebuffer and nvidia-drivers for 3d in the same kernel. You need two kernels...

Second problem was the issue with the first virtual terminal not permitting input from my keyboard. I noticed the issue had to do with starting my networking. Now that is all I really traced it down to. It seems that once it loads the e100e module and neth.eth0 is started, issues arise with the vertual terminal. It could also be some of the services that start up as well. Not really sure, but it isn't a major problem since I can use the other virtual terminals just fine. =/

Cheers
Raist
