I know this is not due to smxi but just fyi.

I have been getting this error on boot with 2.6.29-0.lqx.1-liquorix-686.

userweb.kernel.org/~dtor/eviocgbit-bug.html

This address is actually posted during boot.

once again just for your info. I will have to find out where to post it for the developer. I did see a link somewhere so I will dig a little.

Thanks again for the script.

That error is due to old userspace applications:

:: Quote ::
The following programs are known to have this problem:
# Synaptics XOrg driver (up to and including version 0.14.6)
# TSLIB library?


Now, lets check Debian's repository:
:: Code ::
$ apt-cache policy xserver-xorg-input-synaptics
xserver-xorg-input-synaptics:
  Installed: 0.99.3-3
  Candidate: 0.99.3-3
  Version table:
 *** 0.99.3-3 0
        101 http://ftp.de.debian.org experimental/main Packages
        100 /var/lib/dpkg/status
     0.14.7~git20070706-3 0
        500 http://ftp.de.debian.org sid/main Packages
        500 http://ftp.de.debian.org testing/main Packages


I was not aware of this since I'm already using newer packages that have migrated their code on schedule with kernel development. As you can see, the version in sid or testing right now uses code from late 2007...

I'm already running the latest version of X from experimental (which happens to not be that new, the maintainer must be waiting for something or on vacation since the final release of all these different user space utilities or foundations has been out for a while now).

I get similar results.
:: Code ::
$ apt-cache policy xserver-xorg-input-synaptics

  Version table:
     0.99.3-3 0

You're using the old package, notice which version the three asterisks (***) are inserted before.

I enabled the experimental repos but it won't install due to unmet dependencies. I will need to dig a little more.

Yes, you'll need to purge the entire xorg set of packages and install the new ones:

:: Code ::
apt-get purge xserver-xorg.*
apt-get install xorg xserver-xorg-input-kb xserver-xorg-input-mouse xserver-xorg-input-synaptics -t experimental

I used synaptic to try and install it and it did say all of xserver-xorg will be removed but it would not continue due to dependencies.

Try xserver-xorg-core first, and just build up from there.

If you need help, it's a lot easier to help you through the steps via IRC.

I will work on it when I get some more time and let you know.

Thanks for the great work.
