It's seed time again. This time, it's a few new sources from tuxonice. I've just uploaded .configs for 3.0.39-tuxonice, 3.3.8-tuxonice-r1, and 3.4.10-tuxonice in both x86 and x86_64 flavors. Enjoy!

Cheers,
Pappy

No, the keyboard works fine except in the X-server. As a console keyboard its fine, and yes, I'm talking about the built-in laptop keyboard.

BTW After I start the X-server, I can't even use the keyboard to switch back to the console with ALT-CTL-F1, but if I log in via ssh, then I can kill the X-serve, and then the laptop keyboard works fine on the console again.

Hmm. That's weird. My first thought would be to make sure that you have the line
Code:
INPUT_DEVICES="evdev"
in /etc/make.conf. Also, make sure that you have no references to xkb in your /etc/X11/xorg.conf file (if it exists). If you have updated xorg-server without updating all drivers, try one of my little tricks:
Code:
emerge -1 $(qlist -IC x11-drivers)


This reinstalls all X drivers (including evdev, if noted in /etc/make.conf as above). If that fails, post your /var/log/Xorg.0.log. That should tell what isn't loading, and why. Well, maybe not why, but once you know what's failing to load, you get one step closer to things working.

Of course,this all depends on your xorg-server version. This should cover pretty much everything from [EDIT] xorg-server-1.7 [/EDIT] to present. If you're using an older version, you'll have to look back in the threads to find the crux of that biscuit.

Cheers,
Pappy

Thanks Pappy! That did it! :D

I had something else in INPUT_DEVICES="..."

Something I must have gotten from an old HowTo somewhere. :evil:

Anyway, its working now. Thanks again! 8)

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

So, now that X is up, I need to get the backlight control working. I can't dim the display. Its on full brightness. It is a Panasonic display with a fluorescent backlight. Any ideas? :?:

Moriah,

In the kernel under frameburrer (I think) are some options for backlight control
You want those if you don't have them yet.

I just turned those options on and rebuilt the kernel and rebooted, but the backlight still does not dim. :(

Maybe I need to fiddle with what all I enabled. My menuconfig looks like this:
Code:

  | |                --- Backlight & LCD device support
  | |                <*>   Lowlevel LCD controls
  | |                <*>     Platform LCD controls
  | |                {*}   Lowlevel Backlight controls
  | |                <*>     Generic (aka Sharp Corgi) Backlight Driver
  | |                < >     Frontpath ProGear Backlight Driver
  | |                < >     Apple Backlight Driver 
  | |                < >     Tabletkiosk Sahara Touch-iT Backlight Driver 
  | |                < >     Backlight Driver for ADP8860/ADP8861/ADP8863 using WLED
  | |                < >     Backlight Driver for ADP8870 using WLED 

Any suggestions for what I should try instead?

Moriah,

That was what I had in mind. Maybe there is a userspace tool you need too. GNOME on my netbook just works so I have not learned a geat deal about backlight controls.

I can live without it for now. :?

I need to get vmware up on this thing. 8O

The goal is to run Windoze-7 32-bit on this old 32-bit laptop. The hardware is not directly supported by w7 drivers, but I have run vmware on it before, and w7-32-bit runs under vmware, so... :twisted:

It's always cool when kernel.org brings back an old source family. I've just uploaded .configs for 2.6.32.60 and 3.0.45-gentoo in both x86 and x86_64 flavors. Enjoy!

Cheers,

PS: If you have had trouble accessing the site recently, I apologize. The original router in this place was having issues. I've recently taken it down, and it appears as if my data errors are gone. If mine are gone, then I'd say the site is back up to its standard performance level. Once again, my apologies for any inconvenience associated with that issue.

It's chilly and rainy here in Pomona. That's the perfect time to work with computers. No one questions why you're not out in the rain. Of course, since it's 02:00 California time, it's a good time to stay inside, anyway. Bored yet?

Okay. Then let me just finish all this by saying I just uploaded .configs for 2.6.32-hardened-r133, 3.2.30-hardened-r3, 3.2.31, and 3.5.6-hardened in both x86 and x86_64 flavors. Enjoy!

Cheers,
Pappy

Still chilly here. I just uploaded .configs for 3.0.46, 3.4.14, 3.5.7, 3.6.2, and 3.6.2-gentoo in both x86 and x86_64 flavors. Enjoy!

It was a nice day to get the clothes dryer working. It's also a good day to post some new seeds for some new source. I've just uploaded .configs for 2.6.32-hardened-r134, 3.0.46-gentoo, 3.2.31-hardened, 3.5.7-gentoo, and 3.6.1-hardened in both x86 and x86_64 flavors. Enjoy!

Gibbo_07,

Thanks for the kind words. I am always happy to hear from folks that have found the seeds useful. That lets me know that every once in a while, I do have a really good idea.

Everyone,

It's another night of hardened sources, with a vanilla mixed in for good measure. I've just uploaded .configs for 2.6.32-hardened-r135, 3.2.31-hardened-r1, 3.2.32, and 3.6.2-hardened in both x86 and x86_64 flavors. Enjoy!

Cheers,
Pappy
