I just upgraded to X.org 1.5.3 with the intel driver for my video card.

2223 box0 ~> lspci  | grep -i vga
00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation 82845G/GL[Brookdale-G]/GE Chipset Integrated Graphics Device (rev 01)
2224 box0 ~> lspci -s 00:02.0 -n
00:02.0 0300: 8086:2562 (rev 01)

I knew that I'd have to tell X.org to not use hot-pluggable input devices. However, I didn't know that the intel driver broke and that pulling the latest devel from X.org's git server won't help. So, I needed to turn off hardware acceleration, so now I have a minimal /etc/X11/xorg.conf:

Section "ServerFlags"
	# kill AIGLX so intel driver works
	Option "AIGLX" "off"
	# kill hotpluggable input device support
	Option "AutoAddDevices" "False"

Section "Files"
	# failed build of git build #ModulePath "/usr/local/xorg/lib/xorg/modules"
	ModulePath "/usr/lib/xorg/modules"

Section "Device"
	Identifier "Card0"
	# kill hardware acceleration so intel driver works
	Option "NoAccel"
	# fail #Option      "AccelMethod" "uxa"
	# fail #Option      "AccelMethod" "xaa"
	# fail #Option      "AccelMethod" "exa"
	Driver "intel"

Section "Extensions"
	# kill whee effects I don't use
	Option "Composite" "Disable"

Nice pre tags! My RSS reader likes! So, why can't you have hot-plugable input devices? -Doug

Well, not can't, rather don't want to. I don't really need to run hald. ;)

yeah, the pre tags are nice. -- Nathan
