Well, I just wanted to report back that after comparing your settings in
Xorg.conf(5) to my own, that /really/ the only significant difference was
the omission of the following:
InputDevice "Mouse0" "CorePointer"
InputDevice "Keyboard0" "CoreKeyboard"
Option "AllowEmptyInput" "false"
Option "AutoAddDevices" "true"
Option "AutoEnableDevices" "true"
Option "Protocol" "auto"
Option "Device" "/dev/sysmouse"
Option "ZAxisMapping" "4 5 6 7 8"
So I simply comment all of those lines from my own xorg.conf(5) file,
changed the rc.conf(5) line:
rebooted > startx && all was well.
Thanks for taking the time to share your conf file Tom,
now I can live harmoniously with hald(8) :)
