My last update of modular Xorg on NetBSD was about last June 20, only on NetBSD
6.1 i386, and I posted the following problem on June 27.
That stopped me from attempting to update NetBSD or packages on netbsd-6 amd64
or netbsd-HEAD i386 or amd64.
I can say FreeBSD is also having problems with KMS on xorg-server 1.12.4,
including not being able to return to text console after starting X.
Would I have a better chance with HEAD? I don't really want to go further with
Here is what happened (sent last June 27):
I recently upgraded modular xorg on NetBSD 6.1, subsequently hoping in vain to
get print/hplip working on my HP LaserJet M1212nf MFP.
But I noticed that the mouse pointer would move right-to-left and back but not
up or down.
Sometimes the mouse pointer wouldn't move at all.
I tried Protocol = "wsmouse", "auto" and "USB".
I tried Driver = "vga", "vesa", and "r128", haven't tried "intel" yet.
This is a USB-stick installation that can run on either of two computers, hence
the "r128" and "intel".
Has anybody else experienced this mouse misbehavior/semi-crippling?
In the past, sometimes the mouse pointer would move, sometimes not, but never
On the VT console, most of the time wsmouse didn't work.
I have built and installed NetBSD i386 and amd64 on USB sticks for netbsd-5,
netbsd-6 and HEAD.
