Re: Xorg 7.0 upgraders read this

There is a pathproblem with my GDM... I am investigating.... Maybe the paths in /opt/gnome/etc/gdm/gdm.conf must be changed too?

Re: Xorg 7.0 upgraders read this

The new path is /usr/bin/X

Go look for the 4 or 5 lines that have /usr/X11R6/bin/X or whatever it is and change it to that


There's no place like 127.0.0.1

The gdm version that was in current before Xorg 7 hits it from Testing was version 2.8.0.7-5 and it is NOT compatible with Xorg 7, while the gdm that was in Testing and now is in current is version 2.8.0.7-3, So your pacman will not upgrade gdm but it is needed, so for all gdm users, please do

pacman -S gdm

that will fix it...

I'm having the same problems, the thing is it was working fine with xorg7 before this update.  I had installed xorg7 originally from the big dummy package in testing that installed everything and I took this oppertunity to remove alot of the stuff I thought I didn't need.  So pretty much all of the xf86-video-* packages are gone except raedon and all of the xf86-input-* packages are gone except keyboard.  I don't need mouse since this is on my laptop and I'm using synaptics.  I'm not sure if maybe one of the modules needs to be there but isn't or if something else is to blame.  What ever it is I didn't see any errors in the logs.

Great, that did it.  This should be added to the wiki page.

There's already a wiki page. http://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/How … roll_wheel


The suggestion box only accepts patches.

Re: Xorg 7.0 upgraders read this

This works for me, this is my contribution, I hope can help someone in troubles:
pacman -Sy
pacman -Rd xorg-server xorg-clients (if installed)
pacman -Sf xorg-xdm
pacman -S xorg-clients xorg-server
pacman -Sf xorg

pacman -Syu (upgrade all system, almost 200mb)

pacman -S xorg-fonts-75dpi
pacman -S xorg-fonts-100dpi
pacman -S libxcomposite libxss

Enter in /etc/X11/xorg.conf and reconfigure the paths so:
Section "Files"
RgbPath "/usr/share/X11/rgb"
FontPath "/usr/share/fonts/misc/"
FontPath "/usr/share/fonts/TTF/"
FontPath "/usr/share/fonts/Type1/"
FontPath "/usr/share/fonts/CID/"
FontPath "/usr/share/fonts/75dpi/"
FontPath "/usr/share/fonts/100dpi/"
FontPath "/usr/share/fonts/local/"
ModulePath "/usr/lib/xorg/modules"
EndSection

Write startx, if it doesn't works kdm or gdm, write:
mkdir -p /usr/X11R6/bin/
ln -s /usr/bin/X /usr/X11R6/bin/X
If doesn't works, control the errors, maybe it misses a file, install it with pacman.


Moreover, I've a ricompiled kernel with drivers nvidia, so I'm entered on my kernel source and I've written:
make all && make modules_install
generate-modprobe.conf
cp -f System.map /boot
cd arch/i386/boot
cp -f bzImage /boot

At this point I've rebooted and I've reinstalled Nvidia drivers:

./NVidia.xxxxxx.run (WITHOUT OVERWRITE FILE /etc/X11/xorg.conf)

Re: Xorg 7.0 upgraders read this

Im trying to upgrade, all goes well, but when I startx or run kdm, X returns to console and when I look @ Xorg.0.log I can see this at the bottom of the file:

Fatal server error:
could not open default font 'fixed'

I have xorg-fonts-100dpi, 75dpi, Type1, encondings ... installed and I use the instructions in the wiki.

I also, modify xorg.conf and adjust the paths.

Any idea ?

What about write this to /etc/X11/xorg.conf

Section "DRI"
    Mode 0666
EndSection

Already have it.

Re: Xorg 7.0 upgraders read this

Hmmmm...I keep getting

failed to load module "i810" (module does not exist, 0)
No drivers available

And it's correct!  I look in /usr/lib/xorg/modules/drivers and there is no i810 module in there.  Any ideas?  ModulePath has been set correctly in xorg.conf
And there's also no i810 module in the old module path either.

Re: Xorg 7.0 upgraders read this

mmccaskill: My raedon drives just decided to start working all by them selves.  Well, maybe there was an update that I overlooked and didn't test, but as of today my system is working.  I've made no changes to any of my configs and was quite surprised when I ran glxgears and saw a 4 digit number.  Its not much help but maybe there was an update to the xorg packages pushed out that fixed this?  I know its not much help, but I was haveing a similiar problem to yours and am now working fine.

Xorg has moved to a modular design.  Now, EVERY driver needs to be installed independently of the server itself, input and video alike.
