Laptop - I can startx, but no keyboard or touchpad

If anyone can help, I'd be appreciative.

HP Probook 6470b specs, although I know chip-sets can slightly vary.
http://h10010.www1.hp.com/wwpc/pscmisc/vac/us/product_pdfs/HP_ProBook_6470b_datasheet.pdf

wgetpaste /var/log/Xorg.0.log
https://bpaste.net/show/2d89c16d9d3c

lspci -k | wgetpaste
https://bpaste.net/show/330c48412d32

https://bpaste.net/show/be5c8a9fc5af

dmesg | wgetpaste

I'm also getting that "init respawning too fast disabled 5 minutes" related to /etc/inittab

Thanks, Jay

make.conf please

do you have those?
Code:
qlist -I xf86
x11-drivers/xf86-input-evdev
x11-drivers/xf86-input-joystick
x11-drivers/xf86-input-keyboard
x11-drivers/xf86-input-mouse
x11-drivers/xf86-input-synaptics
x11-drivers/xf86-input-wacom
x11-libs/libXxf86dga
x11-libs/libXxf86misc
x11-libs/libXxf86vm
x11-proto/xf86bigfontproto
x11-proto/xf86dgaproto
x11-proto/xf86driproto
x11-proto/xf86miscproto
x11-proto/xf86rushproto
x11-proto/xf86vidmodeproto


and this

Code:
grep INPUT /etc/make.conf
INPUT_DEVICES="evdev synaptics keyboard mouse wacom joystick"


oftopic: !
you sure have your reason using systemd (most requests here are / were for systemd) in the past.
As I do not use systemd and never intend to, I can not help you.
eudev works for myself with minor function loss for months (if you do not need systemd for gnome desctop ...)

I added:
x11-drivers/xf86-input-joystick
x11-drivers/xf86-input-wacom

I didn't have those packages. Plus, I did change my make.conf to look like the one shown below.
I ran:
Code:
emerge --ask -uDN --with-bdeps=y @world

after I made the change.

Weird side note: (I ran "emerge --depclean". It removed nano as one of the packages.)

wgetpaste /etc/portage/make.conf
https://bpaste.net/show/e8c7aaab5627

qlist -I xf86 | wgetpaste
https://bpaste.net/show/4adea27b8618

No systemd here... That I know of. I know it's off in the kernel. I am chrooted from a partition that has it. I don't think that would show up in my Gentoo logs, but I'm not sure either.

Yeah, I tried startx again, no luck. The keyboard and touchpad still don't work.

those two are optional!

wacom => i have a graphire 4 tablet, if you do not have such tablets form that company wacom you do not need those.
joystick => i have some sort of usb "playstation like" controller with sticks and therefore i needed such for some games in the past..


to keep nano in your world profile of the portage tree, and ofc emerge nano
emerge --noreplace nano

do you start your x-server from the chroot or from the booted "gentoo" partition?

could be a kernel issue also. some stuff are needed so they work. usually lsusb / lshw => and than add the stuff in the kernel. e.g. my mouse needs "holtek" and some usb stuff for sure to work in the x-server.

which type of keyboard / mouse are you referring is not working
build in keyboard / trackpad?
or usb keyboard / usb mouse?

On my Dell Latitude laptops of various makes, I only have INPUT="evdev synaptics" and it works. Before I also had keyboard and mouse and it gave me issues.

typo fix: INPUT_DEVICES="evdev synaptics"
and
VIDEO_CARDS="intel"
in /etc/portage/make.conf is indeed usually enough

Yeah, it's all built in.I was having trouble figuring the names of the kernel modules to look for.

lshw
https://bpaste.net/show/b90036cb7b44

lsusb
https://bpaste.net/show/52a5e8ab5781

I run startx from the actual partition. I just work on it from my debian partition, because it's easier with web services, copy and paste...
I'm just stuck, directionally, and burnt out. I've been doing this for 3 days straight...

Thanks a million for the help too,
very much appreciated,
Jay

Hey, Donahue. Nice to bump into you again on here.
Reading your post now... Just caught site of it.

I'll make the changes and get back to you.
Thanks,

the main problem looks to be kernel config. there were some udev/evdev problems last month, forgotten the fixes.
Had you read this news:
Quote:
2015-06-08-udev-init-scripts-changes
Title udev-init-scripts-29 important changes
Author William Hubbs <williamh@gentoo.org>
Posted 2015-06-08
Revision 2

In udev-init-scripts-29 and newer, the udev service script has been
split into udev, udev-settle and udev-trigger.

This means the settings in /etc/conf.d/udev have also been migrated
to the appropriate /etc/conf.d files, so be careful when you update your
configuration settings.

udev and udev-trigger will be added to your sysinit runlevel, but not
udev-settle. udev-settle should not be added to a runlevel. Instead, if
a service needs this, it should add "need udev-settle" to its
dependencies.
may or may not have relevance. Mainly using my systemd, just started update on an openrc to take a look.

It took me a minute. I wanted to be as thorough as possible and provide as much information as well. So, I really hope it's all helpful.
I didn't see that message, not in the eselect news-read. Interesting. I'll read more into it.

root@debian [09:14:13] [/usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d]
-> # ls
10-evdev.conf 50-joystick-all.conf 50-vmmouse.conf
10-quirks.conf 50-synaptics.conf 50-wacom.conf.bak

I have no /etc/X11/xorg.conf
I ran:
Code:
X -configure


I tried running X with the path to xorg.conf.new
I was left with a black screen. Although, I didn't have nothing to interact with. My caplock button didn't light up, so I'd say the keyboard was a no-go, there.

wgetpaste /root/xorg.conf.new
https://bpaste.net/show/f19549ed154c

wgetpaste /var/log/Xorg.0.log
https://bpaste.net/show/f28a32d25fd9

dmesg
http://pastebin.com/hupBcmLu
The colored version: Although, I still couldn't find a syntax that showed the red text error in the middle:

    [ 9.224027] [drm:intel_set_pch_fifo_underrun_reporting [i915]] *ERROR* uncleared pch fifo underrun on pch transcoder A
    [ 9.224041] [drm:cpt_irq_handler [i915]] *ERROR* PCH transcoder A FIFO underrun




I copied over these from my debian partition. I figured it's linux, uses X, and is on the same computer.

root@debian [09:15:36] [/usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d]
-> # qlist -IC x11-drivers

    x11-drivers/xf86-input-mtrack
    x11-drivers/xf86-input-synaptics
    x11-drivers/xf86-input-wacom
    x11-drivers/xf86-video-intel


rc-update show

rc-status sysinit
http://bpaste.net/show/9e33d7c14486
emerge -pv xorg-server
http://bpaste.net/show/df86c88bc206


These are the exact messages that come up in gentoo, every 5 minutes. I didn't have much luck in my search. Although, I seen this samething when I installed on my desktop, not sure how I got rid of it. Someone suggested that it's something in the kernel that was built as a module, and needed to be built into the kernel, and that it's respawning because it hasn't been built.

INIT:Id "s0" respawning too fast: disabled for 5 minutes
INIT:Id "s0" respawning too fast: disabled for 5 minutes

(If anyone knows the exact work-around/ option in kernel. I'd like to throw them in my install notes as well as fix this.)

Thanks to all,
Jay

the debian references are confusing. if you boot gentoo and use wgetpaste I may be able to follow.

do not run X -configure, do not allow a xorg.conf to exist in your gentoo install, you have a known intel GPU that works just fine with the default xorg-server script.

udev [ crashed ]
solves why no keyboard/mouse; leaving the question, why no udev?

have you recompiled and installed a new kernel

Donahue,
I recompiled the settings you suggested.
I ran X -configure, but I never transfered the xorg.conf file. It exists only as xorg.conf.new.
I tried restarting udev with no luck...

All of the wgetpaste files came from the Gentoo partition actually booted in, except the log files, lshw and lsusb, which I got from a chrooted environment.

commenting those lines out... I tried once before, and the error still reappeared. I know it happened on my desktop too, and the lines aren't commented out there. It's something in the kernel.

I went through and tried to match up some of pappi's configs from http://kernel-seeds.org/ (while, making sure I kept the options you suggested) I must've ran into one option from pappi's page that sent me backwards. The network quit working. So, I defaulted back to the configurations I left off with that you sent me. I figured I'd give it a try again, changing a few options at a time with every build. I'm not sure what's going on and why it's not working.

Any ideas?

Jay

udev not running is a killer
does
Code:
zgrep -i udev /proc/config.gz
produce
Quote:
CONFIG_GENTOO_LINUX_UDEV=y
which auto selects: DEVTMPFS [=y] && TMPFS [=y] && MMU [=y] && SHMEM [=y]
uncomment #rc_logger="YES" in /etc/rc.conf
run
Code:
/etc/init.d/udev restart | wgetpaste -t
dmesg | wgetpaste -t
wgetpaste -t /var/log/rc.log
qlist -IC x11-drivers | wgetpaste -t
post url's returned

Quote:

The xorg.0.log shows considerable progress; the intel driver is now in use.


edit /etc/inittab to comment out (save as shown with the #'s):
# SERIAL CONSOLES
#s0:12345:respawn:/sbin/agetty -L 115200 ttyS0 vt100
#s1:12345:respawn:/sbin/agetty -L 115200 ttyS1 vt100
respawning is harmless but unnecesary and annoying in log, uses a few micoseconds every 5 minutes The handbook has a section
Quote:
If serial console access is needed (which is possible in case of remote servers), uncomment the serial console section in /etc/inittab:

root #nano -w /etc/inittab
# SERIAL CONSOLES
s0:12345:respawn:/sbin/agetty 9600 ttyS0 vt100
s1:12345:respawn:/sbin/agetty 9600 ttyS1 vt100
If you need serial console access (which is possible in case of remote servers) you can live with the noise

Yeah, I commented out those lines. They did stop re-spawning after reboot. Last time, I must've tried it, seen no change (without the restart) and just changed it back. So, I apologize. Plus, the information on-line is all over the place on that topic; everyone says something different.

/etc/init.d/udev restart | wgetpaste -t
https://bpaste.net/show/8725ee857bfc
dmesg | wgetpaste -t
https://bpaste.net/show/99062c35552b
wgetpaste -t /var/log/rc.log
https://bpaste.net/show/888d5917d7e1
qlist -IC x11-drivers | wgetpaste -t
https://bpaste.net/show/53c51e8ba59d

I checked... The rc.log doesn't show much, maybe because I just started it, but udev still crashed after I ran openrc.

This did show when I ran "zgrep -i udev /proc/config.gz":
CONFIG_GENTOO_LINUX_UDEV=y

One step closer... I did play around with minor options in the kernel.
My current kernel configuration: https://bpaste.net/show/4a782e23c628
I don't think I made any detrimental changes... Most are default settings from what I read in the help log... "like this defaults to off, or if you're unsure check yes"

Hope this helps.
Thanks much,
Jay

Code:
rc-status sysinit
is udev still crashed?
How does the startx failure manifest itself? Blank black screen forever? Drops into an error message?
How do you return to the CLI?
Have you tried manipulating the brightness and backlight keys if it blank screens?
Is the last Xorg.0.log still good? If not, please pastebin a new one.

recommend strongly add to menuconfig:
Quote:
File systems --->
[*] Dnotify support
-*- Inotify support for userspace
-*- Filesystem wide access notification
and recompile/install kernel. inotify was not, but ought to be picked up by enabling CONFIG_GENTOO_LINUX_UDEV=y ; the problem with automatic choices is that they discourage individual checking on the items auto should choose, the other notify's are a good idea

I recompiled the kernel about 4 times, messing with those 3 options.
I can use this option:
[*] Dnotify support
The other two cause my network to stop working.

When I run startx, I come into a window with two xterm terminals, but I have no touchpad or keyboard.

rc-status sysinit
shows udev crashed.

sucks.

If you rebuilt the kernel several times how comes you are still running the first compilation?

@Buffoon I don't have it set up to append or index the build number. It's writing over the kernel with each build.

This is done for you automatically. Every time you run make in kernel source directory the number increments. You are running the compilation #1 built Sun Jul 12 11:31:36 2015.

Can you tell us how do you install a new kernel after you compile it?
