    Xorg.. I broke it!! :|


    Hello All.. I attempted to install Beryl cause it had some really neat themes.. well the install didnt go well, complained about not having a Nvidia card or something.. I restarted my computer this morning to go into windows to play a game and I came back and now I get this error when I try "startx"

    (++) Using config file: "/root/xorg.conf.new"
    (EE) module ABI minor version (6) is newer than the server's version (5)
    (EE) Failed to load module "mouse" (module requirement mismatch, 0)
    (EE) module ABI minor version (6) is newer than the server's version (5)

    (EE) No Input driver matching `mouse'
    (EE) No Input driver matching `kbd'

    Any Ideas? I've unmerged xorg, xorg server, ati drivers the whole lot.. reinstalled it all and nothing seems to work.

    Hey genesus,


    Thanks for the reply.. but I've had it with ATI.. I ordered an Nvidia card and its going to be here today, Im going to throw that in and try to reconfigure xorg for the nvidia.. I am hoping that will solve this issue.. though I'm not sure why it is complaining about the mouse and keyboard drivers? I will post the conf when I get home.

    You can just use "xorgconfig" to create a new xorg.conf, the program will ask some questions and then create a new file for you.
