Regardless, you should be able to run hwd and remove the .sample ending or what ever it is, for a working xorg file. Having a problem logging in? It does indicate that you are using devfs rather than udev, there will be a kernel boot option or config entry in /etc/ to choose which you use. "Insanity: doing the It seems that since Kernel-2.6, 3 modules have to bee load: - psmouse - input - mousedev And the new link for the PS/2 mouse is /dev/input/mice, but /dev/psaux still run http://www.linuxquestions.org/questions/linux-general-1/xf86openserial-cannot-open-device-dev-psaux-96535/

Apparently, though, it doesn't matter what's in that, because x isn't workingI'm in the #xorg channel now, but it seems everybody is either sleeping or could care less that I'm there:newbie:HELP alloydog LXF regular Posts: 600Joined: Thu Apr 07, 2005 7:32 pm Top RE: /dev/mouse not found after kernel update.

That should get you past the mouse errors. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. I don't know what I might have done, but is > was all > working yesterday. You'll have to switch soon, devfs support was removed for the 2.6.13 kernels.

i wouldnt describe it as the best distro for a "Noob to Linux" as you describe yourself elsewhere, but its relatively stable, excellent package management, and as quick as Muck off During boot-up, one of the messages is: devfs_mk_dev: could not append to parent for md/0 Which is repeated 25 times, for devices md/0 to md/24. I wonder why that is.

The same happens with all-round symlinks that used to exist in /dev, such as /dev/mouse, which udev doesn't create anymore. get X working first is maybe the way to go.Try the Arch Wiki section. da_kidd_er View Public Profile View LQ Blog View Review Entries View HCL Entries Find More Posts by da_kidd_er 10-04-2004, 04:49 AM #5 grdscarabe LQ Newbie Registered: Oct 2004 Location: http://ecoflashapps.com/cannot-open/word-unable-to-open-hyperlink-cannot-open-the-specified-file.html However, on reboot, the X server failed to start.

by alloydog » Wed Dec 21, 2005 8:40 am Update Reading the Gentoo udev Guide, it states: No Consistent Naming between DevFS and udev ... You may also want to read up about installing radeon drivers, tho as far as I know it's not plain sailing, so maybe you want to get x up and running If you permanently use 2.6, select /dev/input/mice as your mouse device. cheers...
