Re: Xorg error-SOLVED

If it's complaining about kbd and mouse then just install xf86-input-keyboard and xf86-input-mouse.

That was my fault. It took me an extra day to update the Beginner's Guide to the new method of grabbing the basic Xorg packages. The old "xorg" group package has been removed. Sorry for the delay, I was pretty busy for a couple days, but glad you got it working. wink

Note that a xorg group appeared in testing :

"added xorg group with minimal amount of packages to get a X session running"
