This writeup will give me options to experiment with and see which works when I'm back in FreeBSD, am in Linux (Slackware 13.0) now.

I think I tried other things besides "AllowEmptyInput" without success but will look again.

There was nothing regarding hald in /etc/X11/xorg.conf (Linux), and there is no /etc/rc.conf (maybe in other Linux distributions?)

I found hald called in /etc/rc.d/rc.hald which is called by /etc/rc.d/rc.M

I found D-Bus called in /etc/rc.d/rc.messagebus which is also called by /etc/rc.d/rc.M

I think the M in rc.M means multiuser.

Using HAL (hald) seems much more logical than not using HAL.
