Fresh install of 2010-07-24 snapshot. I have no xorg.conf.
I have tested and it seems to work correctly:
- xrandr (rotate, dual screen)
- xv (even with one video on each screen, with mplayer)
- OpenGL lightly tested (glxgears works)
- compositing (xcompmgr + FadeInactive in xmonad)
I have problems with my touchpad. When I start X (using startx),
sometimes, X takes a little bit longer to start, and the touchpad does
not work. In this case,
pckbc: command timeout
pmsi_enable: command error
appears in the dmesg. Switching between VT and X try to take the
touchpad. Sometimes, I have the same symptomes (slower switch to X,
the messages in the dmesg and no touchpad), and sometimes, it works
It works about 1/5 of the times. One time the touchpad works, I do not
have any problem until I restart X or switch to VT.
With a snapshot 1 or 2 weeks ago, I did not have this problem. I do
not know if this is related to xserver 1.8.2.
I also have problems with X and suspend, but I cannot compare with old
behavior because suspend did not work at all with the other snapshots.

I am aware of this and looking into it.

please read xenocara/README and get me an xserver backtrace with debug
symbols. Not the core file, the output of
A place where they dispense with justice.
