Description DEMAINE Benoît-Pierre, aka DoubleHP 2008-02-19 15:22:44 UTC
This tracker will list bugs that are related to the fact X-1.4 does not always behave as asked in xorg.conf, and will not report problem, message, warnings properly on the log (improperly, or not at all).
Comment 1 DEMAINE Benoît-Pierre, aka DoubleHP 2008-02-19 15:23:17 UTC
204401 x11-base/xorg-server-22.214.171.124 does not use second G400 head and does not say why
Comment 2 DEMAINE Benoît-Pierre, aka DoubleHP 2008-02-19 15:23:46 UTC
210704 x11-base/xorg-server-126.96.36.199 does not use second/third/fourth G45x4 heads and does not say why
Comment 3 DEMAINE Benoît-Pierre, aka DoubleHP 2008-02-19 15:24:19 UTC
194515 x11-base/xorg-server-1.4-r2 crashes without explicit error.
Comment 4 DEMAINE Benoît-Pierre, aka DoubleHP 2008-02-19 15:26:39 UTC
200061 sys-apps/hal-0.5.10 breaks layout switching in X server via Xkb because whatever the reason is, this is a regression problem compared to X-1.3, and X does not use asked layout !
Comment 5 DEMAINE Benoît-Pierre, aka DoubleHP 2008-02-19 15:29:32 UTC
bug 204128 x11-base/xorg-server-188.8.131.52: broken cz_qwerty layout on 'rtyuiop' keys for same reason (but here its about kbd layout)
Comment 6 DEMAINE Benoît-Pierre, aka DoubleHP 2008-02-20 17:22:21 UTC
bug 205041 : x11-drivers/xf86-input-evdev-1.2.0 breaks multi-head /multi-foot xorg layouts Please, do not detach closed bugs from this bug; this bug is a list of reports, to help maitainers, developers, and users to get a list of problems and solutions that are linked to X not reporting problems, or lack of documentation. It should be stay open until ALL bugs are solved. Not solved in the BTS way, but fixed technically with a solution merged to portage. "upstream" is not what I call a solution nor a fix: when marked UPSTRAEM, the bug seems closed from BTS point of view, but is still alive from user point of view.

Benoît, I took a quick look at all the linked bugs and here are my suggestions : 1) Could you please update to xorg-server 1.5.3 if you haven't done so already and close bugs which have already been fixed? 2) Could you open bugs in FreeDesktop's bugzilla for all hardware-related breakage? There's only so much we can do here and filing bugs in FreeDesktop is probably your best bet to see issues fixed for good. Thanks

The issues are known upstream, but nobody can point me to any proper tutorial. https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=18472 I will give up with all this. And, either accept to have only one monitor working with a garbaging mouse, or maybe downgrade again to X 1.4, or stop using Linux because it just can't handle dual card conf like before. I am tired of regression bugs.
