Hi everybody. I am attempting to set up xfree86 on my lfs and am having some
problems. When I try to test the XF86Config.new file, everything comes up
o.k., but then the screen never changes and i have to do ctrl+alt+del to
get out. Here's the lines from the log file which have warnings:
(WW) Open APM failed (/dev/apm_bios) (No such file or directory)
(WW) System lacks support for changing MTRRs
(WW) I810(0): xf86AllocateGARTMemory: allocation of 1024 pages failed
(Cannot allocate memory)
Does anybody have any suggestions for me?
I enabled advanced power management as well as the bios option in
menuconfig, but i still get this. I have also created /dev/apm_bios and
made it executable.
Also, (this is wierd, because it used to not happen) it seems like I don't
have the mouse settings entered correctly, because the cursor does not act
right. It goes to the top right when i move it and sporatically moves a
little. I think it's a problem in the script, but i can't pinpoint it.
Can anyone help? here's the mouse part of my XF86Config.new file: (i have
a compaq presario, /dev/psaux, and i guess PS/2? with gpm, i used imps2 but
xf86 wouldn't recognise that setting)
Option "Protocol" "PS/2"
Option "Device" "/dev/mouse"
I have tried to use imps2 instead of PS/2 and /dev/psaux instead of
/dev/mouse, but neither work.
I won't lie- i'm a linux newbie, but I would like to fix this bug and go on
with installing X. I enjoy working with the LFS books a lot, but am
becomming frusterated with this problem. Any help would be great. Thank
