|aarcane||delaney, you can just pacman -Sf then, or delete them.|
if those are the only errors.
|delaney||delete the files u mean?|
|delaney||.xinitrc and .xsession?|
pacman -Sf would be a better idea
|aarcane||I agree with Sacro, but do what's more comfortable to you.|
|vitalstatistix||acpi doesn't seem to show lid open on my laptop using hal 0.5.8, anyone here see the same issue?|
|delaney||Sacro: already did the rm :(|
|aarcane||vitalstatistix, I don't think acpi shows lid open events period. on my laptop, it showed a lid event, and I had to poll the lid device to see if it opened or closed.|
delaney, it doesn't matter much. try the install now.
|delaney||yeah the install worked.. openbox went in firefox now installing|
|vitalstatistix||aarcane, so does acpi_listen show two lid events when you close and open your lid successively?|
|aarcane||vitalstatistix, I don't know. I know acpid triggered two events though, but they were identical.|
|delaney||hrm.. ati module does not exist|
|vitalstatistix||aarcane, are you running the standard arch kernel?|
|aarcane||vitalstatistix, standard, then -mm. I'ven't got the laptop anymore though.|
|Sacro||delaney: xf86-video-ati ?|
|vitalstatistix||aarcane, I see: I only get one lid event (when I close the lid) no open lid event - quite strange|
aarcane, thanks thought
|aarcane||vitalstatistix, try leaving it closed for a few moments then open it.|
delaney, once you set up your .xinitrc or .xsession file, and either startx or /etc/rc.d/gdm start, you should be ready to hit firefox.
|vitalstatistix||aarcane, I have tried that as well|
|aarcane||vitalstatistix, google for your laptop model, and see if other users of the same or similar models have the same issue.|
|delaney||yeah.. the .xinitrc and .xsession are the things im concerned with now any other distros ive used didnt seem to require it|
but im sure i can figure something out
|vitalstatistix||aarcane, a simple cat of the /proc/acpi lid path shows that it's open thought|
|delaney||im sure pacman -S lynx might help me find some stuff so i wont be too much of a pest.|
|vitalstatistix||aarcane, this could be due to hal/acpi issue since it worked before|
|aarcane||delaney, try just placing the line "exec openbox" or whatever the command to start openbox is in your .xinitrc and then type "chmod +x .xinitrc" then startx|
|delaney||awesome. im gonna grab pypanel and stuff too i guess|
|aarcane||delaney, get your X working first, then customize it :)|
delaney, get this, you don't even need an xorg.conf most of the time~
|delaney||okay.. i have openbox running.|
fonts are CRAZY small and i really need to get xorg.conf setup so that i can have proper fonts etc.
but its running.
|aarcane||delaney, you can use firefox to do that though~|
