i've a dsl (well, dsl-n technically) and i installed libc-2.3.2.so (to use with an app)
i need to install touchscreen
i tried using XFree86.dsl but he DOES NOT WORK
i mean: whenever i do startx (either automatically or manually) it show me black screen, no mouse, no anything
i still can enter in ssh BUT i cannot switch to console (ctrl+alt+f1) neither kill process etc.
if i use xorg 7.2, x start, all working BUT does not load evtouch_drv.so modules 'cause it say me "no glibc 2.4 found"
i tried to use older drivers but keep saying either "no glibc 2.4 found" or "ELF file's phentsize not the expected size"
so, what can i do to make this system working as intended?
ty for help

Try configuring XFree before starting it?
Posted by Juanito on Sep. 17 2007,13:55I would have thought that XFree86 would work with your touchscreen unless it is a very new model - maybe you could test things out by using an XF86Config-4 file setup for the vga emulation mode of your touchscreen. Does a google search on XF86Config-4 and the model name of your touchscreen bring up anything?
Did you compile the touchscreen module yourself? If not, maybe it was compiled on a machine that had glibc >=2.4?
It's not obvious how you could get hold of glibc >=2.4 - if you try apt-get you'll have a big broken dependency problem and I'm not sure if compiling glibc will be any easier.

now it work!
the problem was... hardware problem -.-
now i just need to autoload modprobe evedev, but this seems easier part
ty to all
(i'll post soon other boring questions, don't worry )
Posted by Juanito on Sep. 19 2007,12:03'Glad you got it working - was it with XFree86 or xorg72?
Do you need to load evdev or tsdev? I have to load evdev in dsl-n to get my touchpad working, but I thought you needed to load tsdev for a touchscreen?

i used xfree86 'cause... well... i tried both xfree 86 and xorg72, then when i changed hardware i was testing it on xfree86; it worked, and so i used xfree 86
btw, the problem i got on xorg was pretty similar so i have no doubt it'll work fine even on xorg72
btw, how can i load evdev? i need to find a way to autoload it :\
i know i need to add it to some conf file, like i did with .xinitrc, but i don't found what file i need to change :\

Add the following line to /opt/bootlocal.sh:

unlucky, system crash whenever i try to start xorg dunno if this is an error in loading, an error in configuration, or what
when i did "cat /var/log/Xorg.0.log" (connected via ssh) it show an endless list of "Referenced ininitialized screen in Layout!" so i think this is a configuration problem...? or just does not found sisusb??
(note: main monitor wil go blank totally, showing nothin, neither console or shutdown message; monitor plugged into sisusb keep showing black screen with red border like he did with XFree86)
hope this could be useful for you, i'll switch back to XFree86 as soon as possible (waiting for shutdown and reboot)
