Looking at the output generated from /var/log/Xorg.0.log the starting lines were interesting
Googled up the last keyword "AllowEmptyInput" and hit with one of the first few results of ubuntuforums.
(II) Cannot locate a core pointer device.
(II) Cannot locate a core keyboard device.
(II) The server relies on HAL to provide the list of input devices.
If no devices become available, reconfigure HAL or disable AllowEmptyInput
There one of the posters asks for the output of
hal-device and ls /usr/share/hal/fdi/policy/10osvendor/
For hal-device I get this output
The only way to get this ouput was to boot into single-user mode and get it.
error: dbus_bus_get: org.freedesktop.DBUS.
Error: FileNotFound: Failed to connect to socket
No such file or directory.
While this is the output I get from Intrepid Ibex.
(Its quite long 2057 lines)
The ls /usr/share/hal/fdi/policy/10osvendor/ however is good.
The only difference of the output given in 10osvendor between the one
on Jaunty given above and Ibex is Jaunty has entries on ntfs-3g while
Looking forward for suggestions and directions on the same.
$ ls /usr/share/hal/fdi/policy/10osvendor/
