INPUT_DEVICES="evdev synaptics" enabled by default in stage3

 

Sorry !

 

I've just downloaded a Stage3. There's no INPUT_DEVICES in /etc/portage/make.conf.

Yes, I have INPUT_DEVICES in /etc/portage/make.conf

 

I redo my install and report here.

In my first partition I have a debian SID, my install is a dual boot with funtoo.

I redo install from a chroot from the debian.

For resize the partition, I download SystemRescueCD (4.4.1)

After booting with it and do "startx" I have the graphical interface but the same issue too.

The internal mouse of my notebook didn't work.

When I plug a USB mouse, it work.

 

I re-install my funtoo.

I'm in the step

emerge -aev @system.

 

After this I do the kernel and grub install.

After this I do the xorg/x11 install, and continue to report here.

 

I think that the problem is

"evdev: Mouse0: Configuring as keyboard"

in Xorg.log

tsymiroro:

I vaugely recall Dell laptops sometimes had the odd issue with trackpads etc. I had to google this one...

A quick with "linux synaptic DELL Inspiron" found the following url: Ubuntu Bug 1305522

From my experience, Dell's track record with linux tends to be hit/miss. I'm not familiar with Dell laptop models, so I can't say for certain if the driver issue is your problem.

 

Maybe this will point you in the right direction.

 

Good Luck :)

The link in ubuntu bugtracker can not help me

Their solution is installing a new kernel (3.16), but my kernel is newer (3

18)

 

After reducing INPUT_DEVICES to "evdev synaptics"; I do

eix-update

emerge -ev @system

emerge -aDNuv @world

emerge -av xorg-x11 xterm xclock twm xinit

 

In my /etc/portage/package.use I have

x11-apps/xinit -minimal

 

But the issue is not resolved

Always no mouse

I try to install openbox and fluxbox and report here when mouse can work

With LiveCD of Sabayon Gnome it work

 

in his make.conf

INPUT_DEVICES="evdev void"

 

I try to re-install funtoo with the kernel .config of sabayon and his INPUT_DEVICES parameter

 

HS

Sabayon has multiple files in /etc/portage/ that are really dirty/unclean.
