[10:33:41] <girls> the eeepc works again, though I'm unable to get the touchpad working
[10:33:50] <girls> external mouse is ok, but touchpad won't work ...
[10:34:31] <girls> and yet again, I don't find it in lsusb nor lspci - but this time, it's not disabled in bios (because I don't see it in bios either)

[11:11:13] <bill-auger> the mousepad is maybe not a USB device - maybe the standard PS2 interface - that may have a BIOS setting
[11:19:39] <girls> how do I find out?
[11:19:48] <girls> lsps2?
[11:19:49] <girls> ;-)
[11:26:32] <KitsuWhooa> It is PS/2, yeah
[11:26:42] <KitsuWhooa> There should be an Fn + F key combination that enables and disables it
[11:28:57] <girls> I see: Hypernate, Wifi, brightness+, brightness-, external monitor, "ap", mute/unmute, volume+, volume-
[11:29:03] <girls> *hybernate
[11:31:07] <KitsuWhooa> Is the eeepc module loaded?
[11:31:31] <girls> I see eeepc_laptop
[11:32:54] <KitsuWhooa> I'd say try all the fn combinations to see if any of them get the touchpad working :p
[11:33:01] <girls> I did
[11:33:04] <girls> but it didn't help
[11:33:06] <KitsuWhooa> There's definitely a function to disable it in the acpi driver
[11:33:07] <KitsuWhooa> ah
[11:34:49] -!- eschwartz[m] has quit [Quit: Bridge terminating on SIGTERM]
[11:36:48] <KitsuWhooa> Does X see it?
[11:37:01] <girls> you mean in /var/log/Xorg.log?
[11:37:06] <KitsuWhooa> yeah
[11:37:19] <girls> let me check
[11:37:35] <KitsuWhooa> looks to be a synaptics one
[11:37:51] <girls> "[ 5835.710] (==) intel(0): Silken mouse disabled"
[11:37:59] <girls> else no mention of "mouse" or "touch"
[11:39:11] <KitsuWhooa> it should have been there, but
[11:39:18] <KitsuWhooa> xf86-input-synaptics or whatever it is might help
[11:39:29] <girls> I'll recheck the bios once I am about to reboot
[11:39:36] <girls> I tried that, too, once
[11:39:40] <girls> but I can retry it :-)
[11:39:47] <KitsuWhooa> I know PS/2 keyboards show up under /sys/devices/platform/i8042
[11:39:50] <KitsuWhooa> maybe a mouse would show up there too?
[11:40:17] <KitsuWhooa> looks like that would be the case for a normal PS/2 mouse
[11:41:22] <girls> driver driver_override modalias power serio0 serio1 subsystem uevent
[11:41:30] <girls> where should I look?
[11:41:37] <girls> serio*?
[11:41:44] <KitsuWhooa> yup
[11:41:56] <KitsuWhooa> just run find on there :p
[11:42:37] <girls> I see the keyboard under serio0/input/input5
[11:42:49] <KitsuWhooa> the other one is probably the touchpad
[11:43:10] <KitsuWhooa> maybe dmesg | grep serio
[11:43:31] <girls> [ 3.568006] serio: i8042 AUX port at 0x60,0x64 irq 12
[11:43:36] <girls> I see this in serio1, too
[11:43:48] <girls> wth is a "AUX port"?
[11:43:52] <girls> some audio thing?
[11:43:55] <KitsuWhooa> I have no idea, but apparently I do not have it
[11:43:57] <KitsuWhooa> nah
[11:44:21] -!- eschwartz[m] has joined #archlinux32
[11:46:01] <KitsuWhooa> There's a synaptics kernel module. Maybe you need to manually load that one
[11:46:47] <KitsuWhooa> synaptics_i2c most likely
[11:47:56] <girls> loaded, but mousepad still does not work
[11:48:07] <KitsuWhooa> anything in dmesg?
[11:48:43] <girls> nope
[11:48:51] <girls> only my usb mouse shows up
[11:49:41] <KitsuWhooa> Maybe try Fn+F3 again
[11:50:15] <girls> good point
[11:50:42] <girls> nope, still not working :-(
[11:51:01] <KitsuWhooa> Yeah, I'm not sure. It should have shown up
[11:51:06] <KitsuWhooa> at least as a generic PS/2 mouse
[11:52:06] <girls> I'll re-check the bios
[11:52:07] <KitsuWhooa> Do the clicks work?
[11:52:18] <girls> I didn't try
[11:52:24] <girls> and it's already rebooting, now
[11:55:31] <girls> the only thing being disabled in bios now is "OnBoard LAN Boot ROM"
[11:56:13] <KitsuWhooa> https://unix.stackexchange.com
[11:56:13] <phrik> Title: linux - What does the 'i8042.nomux=1' kernel option do during booting of Ubuntu? - Unix & Linux Stack Exchange (at unix.stackexchange.com)
[11:56:18] <KitsuWhooa> the touchpad is on the AUX port apparently
[11:56:32] <girls> ah, ok
[11:56:35] <girls> so it *is* there
[11:59:17] <KitsuWhooa> Does it show up in /proc/bus/input/devices ?
[12:00:17] <KitsuWhooa> and I guess make sure you do case insensitive grepping :p
[12:00:29] <girls> yes, I did :-)
[12:02:59] <girls> Name="Asus EeePC extra buttons"?
[12:03:14] <KitsuWhooa> That's the Fn keys
[12:03:34] <girls> then it's not in /proc/bus/input/devices
[12:06:18] <KitsuWhooa> I really doubt it would help, but because I'm running out of ideas, try booting with i8042.reset i8042.nomux i8042.nopnp i8042.noloop
[12:06:24] <KitsuWhooa> all at once :p
[12:07:06] <KitsuWhooa> that seems to only help for when the AUX port isn't found, but maybe the reset will do something
[12:08:24] <KitsuWhooa> Only other thing I can suggest is trying an older kernel to see if it's a regression, but I doubt that as well
[12:11:29] <girls> afk, lunch - I'll try the kernel parameters after lunch :-)
[12:11:49] <KitsuWhooa> enjoy :p
[12:49:04] <girls> buttons don't work either
[12:49:12] <girls> I'll try the kernel parameters, now

[14:55:59] <girls> ah, no, it just took longer than normal to get tty2 and co up

[17:04:48] <buildmaster> Hi abaumann!
[17:04:48] <buildmaster> !rq abaumann
[17:04:49] <phrik> buildmaster: <abaumann> easy: I just make sure I have the fastest hardware :-)
[17:05:15] -!- deep42thought has joined #archlinux32
[17:05:15] <buildmaster> Hi deep42thought!
[17:05:15] <buildmaster> !rq deep42thought
[17:05:17] <phrik> buildmaster: <deep42thought> if you boot your pc and only a blinking cursor in a rescue console comes up, some people call it "critical" - most time, I would only call it "annoying"
[17:05:18] <deep42thought> Hi abaumann!
[17:05:21] <abaumann> deep42thought: I had to play with the kernel parameter acpi_osi=Windows on my eeepc 701.. otherwise the module would load, but not show certain devices.
[17:05:25] <abaumann> hi deep42thought
[17:05:44] <deep42thought> I should tell the linux kernel to mimic windows?
[17:05:52] <deep42thought> well, if that's so, I'll tell it to ...
[17:06:02] <abaumann> I read that somewhere in a forum.. :-)
[17:06:21] <abaumann> ..actually the proper way would be to debug the module and read it's source code..
[17:06:47] <abaumann> my "new" mirror just blew up (literally, bad caps).
[17:06:59] <deep42thought> the curse of open source: the proper way is always to read and fix the source
[17:07:02] <abaumann> This is a little bit annoying, because I just removed it away from a way older machine..
[17:12:45] <deep42thought> newer != better
[17:13:12] <deep42thought> btw: I switched all my (local) mirrors from "full" mirrors to caching nginx reverse proxies
[17:13:38] <abaumann> sounds good
[17:14:01] <deep42thought> https://git.eckner.net
[17:14:01] <phrik> Title: arch-mirror.home.eckner.net.conf - Erich/arch-mirror - Unnamed repository; edit this file 'description' to name the repository. (at git.eckner.net)
[17:14:24] <deep42thought> and it's still a merged mirror
[17:14:32] <deep42thought> e.g. one for all architectures
[17:15:03] <deep42thought> this makes it much easier to run *multiple* local mirrors
[17:15:26] <deep42thought> each one asks all the other local mirrors' caches first before it tries to download from upstream
[17:19:27] <deep42thought> I hope, your bomb didn't cause any casualties
[17:20:29] <abaumann> smoke :-)
[17:20:39] <deep42thought> :-)
[17:20:41] <abaumann> no problemo :-)
[17:20:58] <abaumann> but now I how to press the power button in order to boot the machine..
[17:21:17] <abaumann> ..there seems to have been a cap which triggers a CPU A which then boots a CPU B..
[17:21:25] <abaumann> Soekris..
[17:21:32] <deep42thought> hoe, what?
[17:21:35] <abaumann> don't ask, they seem to have a hang for bad caps..
[17:21:47] <deep42thought> caps for the power switch?
[17:22:09] <abaumann> something like that. hard to tell without some schematics.
[17:23:36] <deep42thought> or: you need to blow a capacitor in order to push the power button :-)
[17:23:54] <abaumann> also an option ;-)
[17:24:03] <abaumann> which limits the power-cycles a little bit
[17:24:35] <deep42thought> lol
[17:25:09] <abaumann> I should actually have a go and replace all of them.. but I feat my soldering iron is not hot enough. It's an industry grade PCB of sort..
[17:25:25] <abaumann> *fear
[17:25:38] <deep42thought> "not hot enough" is seldom the problem
[17:25:52] <deep42thought> more often it's "its tip is not fine enough"
[17:26:04] <abaumann> ah, good tip.
[17:26:38] <deep42thought> I only once needed to use 2 soldering irons: when I soldered a bunch of loudspeaker cables for my >10 pc powersupply experiment ...
[17:28:36] <abaumann> oh cool, now apache starts up before it has the proper hostname, serving only the default page.
[17:28:50] <deep42thought> service dependencies are a pain
[17:28:56] <deep42thought> especially with systemd
[17:29:20] <deep42thought> on crux, I have to order them linearly - might be a little slower, but creates less headaches
[17:29:36] <abaumann> a, linear systemd, also called shell script. :-)
[17:29:42] <deep42thought> exactly
[17:29:50] <deep42thought> this is, what crux does
[17:35:34] <deep42thought> do I need to restart i3 after lsmod?
[17:35:45] <deep42thought> *insmod
[17:35:48] <deep42thought> of course :-)
[17:35:56] <abaumann> huh?
[17:36:05] <deep42thought> for my touchpad to work
[17:36:15] <abaumann> ah. I lost context. :-)
[17:36:35] <deep42thought> too shallow stack?
[17:37:01] <deep42thought> well, either way, it does not work :-(
[17:37:12] <abaumann> mmh.
[17:37:41] <abaumann> I thought, it's more or less a standard synaptic?
[17:37:54] <deep42thought> it most probably is
[17:38:11] <abaumann> which doesn't mean Xorg is still supporting synaptic. ;-)
[17:40:15] <deep42thought> I give up - time for dinner :-)
