xfree86 configration help
#1

I previously was able to start X server via the command 'startx'

I then ps -ef|grep X

and I killed all the processors that had anything to do with X.

 

Now when I try to run the command 'startx' I am getting configration errors.. I assume there is a PID that I have not successfully killed or something to that effect.. Below is the output of the X configration.. I am not sure what is causing it to stop running

The important point to spot is this here:

 

Quote:(**) Option "Device" "/dev/mouse"(EE) xf86OpenSerial: Cannot open device /dev/mouse

No such file or directory.

(EE) Mouse0: cannot open input device

(EE) PreInit failed for input device "Mouse0"

(II) UnloadModule: "mouse"

(II) Keyboard "Keyboard0" handled by legacy driver

(WW) No core pointer registered

No core pointer
 

The default device for your mouse is "/dev/mouse" however that does not always exist. So what you need to do is alter the XF86Config (or xorg.conf) to point to the correct device.

 

If you have a PS/2 mouse (most will probably have this) then alter the device to "/dev/psaux"

 

That should do it.

 

Btw: Core Pointer == Mouse o_O
