Xvesa bad news

April 14, 2009 — BarryK
I have been testing Xvesa in upup. Works okay, except for the warning messages that I mentioned in a recent post, and one other thing... the keyboard does not work.

On the desktop, I can open a terminal and the keyboard works. But open an X application, such as Geany, Leafpad, etc., and it doesn't. I have no idea why.

I tried compiling Xvesa (which is in the xorg server source package), versions 1.3.0, 1.4, 1.5.1, in upup, compile failed. I can only compile it in a Xorg 7.3 environment, as in Puppy 412.

At this stage it isn't looking too good, and I might have to pull Xvesa out again.
