X.org 7.3 hits testing

Hello all,

the new X.org will be pushed to the [testing] repository in the next few
hours. xorg-server 1.4 comes with many core changes such as:

* a stable release of xf86-video-intel
* randr 1.2
* xorg.conf becomes partially obsolete
* an updated ABI for drivers

The ABI change breaks Nvidia's legacy drivers, so everyone using
nvidia-96xx or nvidia-71xx should either wait until Nvidia fixes the
issue or use xf86-video-nv in the meantime.

As usual, feel free to file bugs for all issues you can find.

Additionally, I strongly doubt fglrx will work with this release.   I believe we're looking at xorg-server 1.4 support in the next one (October's release)

Well, it doesn't work here.

Re: X.org 7.3 hits testing

You can install it by commenting out the testing repo, doing pacman -Syu, looking which packages that are indicated as newer than the current and installing these with pacman-S pacmage name.
BTW, which nvidia card/driver do you use?  I have it up and running here with zero problems, using the latest nvidia driver.

Re: X.org 7.3 hits testing

OK for get synaptics to work change "AllwaysCore" to "SendCoreEvents".

BTW: xv is still kind of broken on intel. Everything is far to bright.

Hm, I already have:
Option "SendCoreEvents" "true"

...in my xorg.conf, but it doesn't work sad

And yeah, my screen is too bright with the intel-driver too, so I went back to i810 again.

EDIT: Nevermind, got it working.

Yes, you can -Sf xorg-server and then -Sf nvidia-utils, that will work as a workaround until alex finds a good fix.

Re: X.org 7.3 hits testing

That's what I had done after I posted, just wasn't sure if anything was wrong with it (cause I have no idea what libwfb does)

Same here, but I've found that switching on a text console and going back to X solved the problem (more a hack than a solution, though)

EDIT: wait...
I have gamma 0.6 set on xorg.conf, and someway, X doesn't honor it on start, but only when I switch on console and then back to X. If I comment the line on xorg.conf, than everything is too bright.

Re: X.org 7.3 hits testing

My mouse is screwy...the mouse has absolutely no acceleration moving up and down but plenty moving left and right.  None of the settings appear to make a difference except to exacerbate the problem.

Same here... another guy had it also with 7.3. I think it's a bug. Nothing major though...

Looks like a bug: https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=12434
I have the same problem, I just never noticed it before.  My screen lock and num lock also don't light up.
