    Default Bad Day! Had to reinstall, now no KB and Mouse

    I had to reinstall ubuntu today after a hard drive failure.... Before I had a working xserver1.5 w/ mesa 7.1 and ati on rv535. Now, After following the steps again, I was able to get everything installed without any errors, but I don't have KB or mouse.

    **I DID install the updated drivers from the crack pushers repo after the core update**

    I don't see anything weird in my Xorg.0.log.
    or in dmesg.

    anyone care to help?

    I'm running tormod xorg pushers repo too and noticed some of the packages had not automatically installed. I recommend you go open a web browser to the ppa directory and manually reinstall each package there to be sure no errors occur.

    regards,

    I also just got reminded about adding this into your xorg.conf:

    Section "ServerFlags"
    Option "AllowEmptyInput" "false"
    EndSection

    Yeah, That's what it was.... found that out a little after posting this. Anyway, back up and running since last night.

    Thank You all, now back to rebuilding....The "fun" stuff. I just had gotten my system the way I want it and "POOF".

    You did have a disaster recovery plan, it just wasn't a very efficient one

    And don't forget to follow the live CD test thread live CD test thread where I sometimes announce updates and known issues. Checking the PPA page is also most recommended before doing any updates.
