Man, I've had this issue for a very long time. As far as I can tell, X has
been completely broken on debian/sparc since xf4. I've emailed this list
and debian-x about it, but haven't received any response, and I haven't
made any headway on the problem myself. I can start X, the server log
indicates that it recognizes my framebuffer, but the keyboard and mouse
are completely ignored. Same story with xf86cfg. I'd be really very
greatfull for any input on this problem. For reference, my own config is:
this is the log output leading up to the failure:
(II) /dev/fb0: Setting up double-buffer acceleration.
(**) Option "Protocol" "auto"
(**) Mouse0: Protocol: "auto"
(**) Option "CorePointer"
(**) Mouse0: Core Pointer
(**) Option "Device" "/dev/gpmdata"
(==) Mouse0: Buttons: 3
(II) Keyboard "Keyboard0" handled by legacy driver
(II) XINPUT: Adding extended input device "Mouse0" (type: MOUSE)
(EE) Mouse0: cannot determine the mouse protocol

and this is the corepointer clause currently in my config:
Option "Protocol" "auto"
Option "Device" "/dev/gpmdata"
... I have tried to use both /dev/sunmouse and /dev/gpmdata without any
effect. gpm works as expected on the console.
