I have my MBE tucked away in the utility room. There is a frontend installed on it so if I want I can go in and schedule/delete recordings, etc... The last few days it has been unresponsive. No keyboard commands seem to work at all. I can ssh into it, the backend is serving my remote frontends, mythweb works, but I can't use the frontend on the MBE server. I know the keyboard is working, because I also have it kvm'd to my Windows server. It is a relatively fresh install of 7.2, and pacman -Syu shows that it is all up to date. Has anyone else had an issue like this? Thanks in advance for any help!

I have seen that on occasion. I just stop and re-start the frontend (with the monitor turned on so Xorg can detect it) and all is (usually) well...

I did stop and start the frontend through ssh several times (sv stop/start frontend), as well as a couple of system reboots, but no dice. It just does not respond. When the frontend is stopped, it does not drop out to the yellow linhes screen, but to the last bit of the boot load information.

I looked at the xorg.conf and it looks like the keyboard and mouse are showing up:

Not a clue what the hell is going on... :?

Also, when I am ssh'd in, have stopped the frontend, and then run mythtv-setup, it says that it cannot connect to X server....

Don't know if this is relative or not but since you said that setup couldn't find the x server it might be.

I had a problem on 7.2 that after some change (that should not have been related) X wouldn't start.
I was getting a Failed to load module "nvidia" I did finally fix it but it was ugly.

Ok- I have never had to dig into any log files before, but this is what I am finding:

So it appears that the keyboard and mouse modules are not loading.

To give this thread some closure, and for those of us that are somewhat Linux challenged, I am posting my resolution.

As I mentioned earlier in the thread, the error logs indicated that the keyboard and mouse modules were not loading. In all the years I have been using LinHES (and KnoppMyth, for that matter), I had never had this happen. I am still not sure why they even disappeared.

At any rate, my googling about produced this: To add the keyboard and mouse modules back in, use the following scripts:

Code:
pacman -Sy xf86-input-keyboard
pacman -Sy xf86-input-mouse


This re-installs the necessary modules for the keyboard and mouse.

Thanks for the closure.. Too many of our threads just drift off into more questions.
