Upgraded to rawhide, lost touchpad ans touchscreen, mouses work
I upgraded from 12 stable and up to date to the latest rawhide build using yum. The system boot but I lost all input methods. I disabled selinux and HAL was able to start, so I got the keyboard and external mouse back, but touchpad and touch screen are still missing. The worked out of the box in 12.
I made an xorg.conf using the right /dev/ devices, it failed.
Catting the device file work, so it is not hardware
lshal output is fine, it is the same than in F 12
My FDI are fine, at least I think to, they doen't seem to have changed that much anyway.
I am not sure if udev is being used there, I did not tested nor I know how.
lsusb show the devices.
I tried with the F12 kernel and Rawhide kernel, same problem.
I don't know any more possible tests, any idea?
*EeePC 701, 32bit, fresh+upgraded F12 to rawhide install
To get the touchpad back, I had to remove the evtouch driver, I don't use it anyway. It just broke X with the ABI change. eGalax (propriatary) driver can load, but only with -- -ignoreABI. It is not very stable... It does not solve my problem.
I created a new /usr/bin/startx with:
startx.real -- -ignoreABI $*
but it does not work, the script fail to execute (it print some keystroke error, even with chmod u+s. And it is totally ignored by KDM so in the end, nothing load if I don't start in init 3 + manually starting services with command line argument (again, scripts does not work). How can I improve the situation?
