some issues

    1. Xorg doesn't find keyboard and mouse (xorg now uses udev, not hal!)
    2. Looks like recent segfaults were caused by busybox. When I replaced it with one from cooking livecd (build with gcc 4.4) everything went back to normal. Also it needs a version bump (1.16.1 is stable now)
    3. I cannot cook anything now - it seems to be some gcc problem (C compiler cannot create executables). Before the gcc bump everything was normal.
    Any ideas?
  • confirm busybox segfaults.

    devl547 : You are right. I have posted earlier that we know slitaz new toolchain, having recently released gcc 4.5.0, is not behaving well with busybox and optimization parameters. We are working on finding a solution and will soon take a decision. If nothing works, we need to downgrade gcc to gcc4.4. I think we should announce this so that all devs know about it.

    Edit: For the latest xorg 1.8 in cooking repos, we are currently utilizing hal rather than udev. We will drop hal once xorg gets more stable (

    jozee, strange. My keyboard and mouse dont work since xorg update. afaik, when I used gentoo it was caused by one of these problems:
    1. need to rebuild all xorg drivers
    2. problems with hal

    devl547 : Your problem is definitely strange. I think we need to stablize slitaz-toolchain and busybox first. I believe many of the current problems are caused due to this. Xorg1.8 is also very recently released. So, problems are bound to be there.

    xorg fixed by adding "AllowEmptyInput" "false" to xorg.conf
