When I startx, it enters to a screen with two xterm windows. I can't use touchpad or keyboard. I hit some key and nothing happens. Unique thing I archived is alt+prtsc+b, then the system reboot.

output of modprobe fglrx
Quote:
modprobe: FATAL: Module fglrx not found.

output of grep -c fglrx /lib/modules/3.6.11-gentoo/{modules.alias,modules.dep}
Quote:
/lib/modules/3.6.11-gentoo/modules.alias:0

rudregues,

I looks like it didn't compile or depmod wasn't run :?

Code:
find /lib/modules/$(uname -r)/ -type f -iname fglr*

If it shows up try depmod -a

if not emerge x11-drivers/ati-drivers|tee fglrx.txt and wgetpaste that file

Also check your INPUT_DEVICES= in make.conf

returned the /path/.../fglrx.ko
(I normally chrooted Gentoo environment from Sabayon, do you think this affect some operations with X11 etc? This command worked only in Gentoo text mode, chrooted environment give me an error)

It worked, after this command I become ablle to load the module with modprobe. And a different thing occurs when I startx. Instead of the strange environment with the two xterms, it enters fluxbox minimal desktop. But I'm not able to use touchpad or keyboard. Unique thing works is ALT+PrtSc+B.

my /etc/make.conf:
INPUT_DEVICES="evdev keyboard mouse synaptics"

Searching I've found two threads like mine:
https://forums.gentoo.org/viewtopic-p-6793842.html
https://forums.gentoo.org/viewtopic-t-883988-highlight-keyboard.html
And many guys used this command:
Code:
emerge -1av $(qlist -IC x11-drivers/)


So I tried, but the result was very strange:
Code:

Use --autounmask-write to write changes to config files (honoring CONFIG_PROTECT).

libdrm claims for VIDEO_CARDS=radeon, but I've VIDEO_CARDS="fglrx" in my /etc/portage/make.conf

rudregues,

You got the error in the chroot because $(uname -r) is going to return sabayon's kernel version so you have to be careful with that.

Compiling the driver should update modules.dep etc., I don't understand why it didn't :?

As for the kb and mouse all you should need in make.conf is INPUT_DEVICES="evdev synaptics"

UPDATE: After changing that do emerge -av1 $(qlist -IC x11-drivers)

Ok Bill, INPUT_DEVICES value fixed.

I can't. If I type that command, I got this error:

and portage stops. And if I remove libdrm?

I unmerged the "camufled" radeon driver. Then execute emerge -av1 $(qlist -IC x11-drivers) before compile my world without any problems.

I've discovered why the modules doesn't prob to the kernel in my chrooted environment. It's because emerge searches for /.../sabayon/.../depmod.map

But even after this, touchpad and keyboard doesn't work.

Yes Bill, Event interface is built-in

Unique thing I changed from default in Input device support is joystick support, becausa I don't use.

Bill, tried but had nothing. Have tried synaptics_usb module too, but nothing too.

I inserted my usb mouse in my notebook, but neither touchpad and mouse works.

I don't know if it helps, but I have a 100% working sabayon with this lsmod http://pastebin.com/1qyJwmHE

rudregues,

emerge x11-apps/xinput and check if the touchpad and/or kb is listed

Code:
laptop linux # xinput
⎡ Virtual core pointer                       id=2   [master pointer  (3)]
⎜   ↳ Virtual core XTEST pointer                 id=4   [slave  pointer  (2)]
⎜   ↳ Logitech Unifying Device. Wireless PID:1020   id=10   [slave  pointer  (2)]
⎜   ↳ Logitech Unifying Device. Wireless PID:4004   id=11   [slave  pointer  (2)]

    ↳ Dell WMI hotkeys                           id=15   [slave  keyboard (3)]

For the serial mouse check CONFIG_MOUSE_SERIAL

I didn't see anything in the list except for ideapad_laptop which is set with CONFIG_IDEAPAD_LAPTOP, but I don't think it has anything to do with the touchpad :?

What does cat /sys/class/dmi/id/sys_vendor && cat /sys/class/dmi/id/product_name return :?:

My notebook does not have a serial port, so CONFIG_MOUSE_SERIAL does not work. The ideapad_laptop, if I correctly remember, is something related with a problem to some Lenovo's keyboard, like some keys functioning like another ones.

Well, here's the problem: Unable to connect to X server 8O

X is not starting - how are you starting it :?: If you're using startx, what's the content of .xinitrc :?:

X starts when I startx in text-mode. But with no keyboard end mouse, so I've executed xinput in text-mode.

My ~.xinitrc:

Hello,

Just to be sure : start /etc/init.d/gpm

Have you a mouse ?
Yes -> X configuration/init problem
No -> find out why

About keyb and mouse under x
The Xorg require udev to detect and init video card, keyboard, mouse etc .....
Have you some error with them ... search on dmesg all message about initilation of keyboard, mouse etc .... all ok or not ?

After that about video card, what card have you ? (lspci -k) , -k to display module used by peripheral

rudregues,

I don't see anything alluding to a touchpad :?

Looking through the module list again and checking some of the names against makefiles isn't helping much.

Did you try comparing sabayon's .config to the gentoo .config :?:

Hi USTruck, gpm works and I can use my usb mouse and touchpad in text-mode. The video card problem was solved in one of the posts above by entering text-mode and typing depmod -a
I'll give a look in dmesg and try to find keyboard and mouse issues.

UPDATE: dmesg here http://bpaste.net/show/75888

Bill, sorry the mistake, I run wgetpaste /proc/bus/input/devices before load psmouse module. S I run again after modprobe the module and touchpad appeared http://bpaste.net/show/75889/
I will install linux-sources in Sabayon and compare the files in input sections.

gentoo input section in kernel config http://pastebin.com/pGjsVc0n
sabayon input section in kernel config http://pastebin.com/cQezwvfz

I don't know, but I think CONFIG_INPUT_MOUSEDEV_PSAUX selected in Sabayon and not selected in Gentoo can be a issue. See about this config here http://kernel.xc.net/html/linux-2.6.19/m68knommu/INPUT_MOUSEDEV_PSAUX

No, CONFIG_INPUT_MOUSEDEV_PSAUX has been (nearly) use for several years.

The issue is most likely (given your previous posts) that you copy random files between gentoo and sabayon, that aren't quite as equivalent as you think.

About make.conf : what ati card have you ? normaly you don't needs fglrx , use radeon

Your keyboard : input/input4

Your synaptics : input/input7

By : ls -l /dev/input/by-id
You verify that all detected correctly and point to /dev/input/inputx (x = input number provider by dmesg -> keyboard /dev/input/input4)


Verify that no X run (/etc/init.d/xdm stop) and ps -A | grep X
launch : X -configure

It's generate an xorg.conf file under root , verify what are detected (section input, keyboard, mouse ....)

If necessary create /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d
Under this folder create a file (30-keyboard.conf, 30-mouse.conf, 30-synaptics.conf)

like :
Quote:
cat /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/30-keyboard.conf
Section "InputClass"
Identifier "keyboard-all"
Driver "evdev"
MatchDevicePath "/dev/input/inputX"
Option "XkbLayout" "YOUR LAYOUT"
Option "XkbOptions" "compose:rwin,terminate:ctrl_alt_bksp" (if you need it)
MatchIsKeyboard "on"
EndSection


/dev/input/inputX ; X = look at where to point /dev/input/by-id
Your Layout : no required if you have US keyboard

About mouse and synaptics, replace MatchIsKeyboard by MatchIsPointer AND identifier by "mouse-all", "touchpad-all"

'man evdev' to know what you put on each file to set some options...

If you prefer and to be sure that do not change usb port (especialy usb mouse) you have a possibilities to change MatchDevicePath by MatchUSBID "matchusb"

lsusb can help you

Void, I stopped to use Sabayon and chroot Gentoo. Now I reboot, enter Gentoo text-mode, run commands passed here and save the output.


USTruck, I really tried to use radeon, but had many problems. So I tried to instal fglrx and it installed with no problems. You can see it here https://forums.gentoo.org/viewtopic-t-950178-highlight-.html

I'll pass rootfstype=ext4 to kernel line in grub. Thanks.

No, it's not. When I run this command I have
Code:
ls: cannot access /dev/input/by-id: No such file or directory

I must link with this command or similar?
Code:
link -s  /devices/platform/i8042/serio1/input/input7 /dev/input/input7



Since ls -l /dev/input/by-id does not list any device, X -configure wouldn't work. The output confirms this:
