How to use ALPS GlidePoint touchpad in Xorg 7.3 (in FreeBSD 7.0-RELEASE (amd64)) ?

I'm having a ALPS GlidePoint touchpad on my HP Compaq Presario A920EE
notebook. I've installed FreeBSD 7.0-RELEASE (amd64) and Gentoo Linux (amd6=
it. In Xorg running in Gentoo Linux, I'm able to use scrolling
functionality of touchpad in Xorg in Gentoo, but not in Xorg in
FreeBSD. Tapping works fine.

InputDevice...Xorg 7.2 on FreeBSD/ppc?
Hello, is anybody out there running Xorg 7.2 on FreeBSD / ppc?
I have a G4 that runs current:
root@kg-g4# uname -a

23:57:02 CEST 2007 firstname.lastname@example.org:/usr/obj/usr/src/sys/GENERIC
I have almost done the Xorg upgrade to 7.2. Almost because xorg-server
(and xorg-server-snap) fails:
cc -DHAVE_CONFIG_H -I. -I. -I../../../include -I../../../include

I've just installed 7.0 on my laptop. I'm trying to setup ACPI.
Everytime I resume the laptop (Dell Latitude D620) the laptop reboots.
Does anyone have any suggestions or hints? Thanks.

To Whom It May Concern: (Cc'ed email@example.com)
Usually i prefer 6to4(stf(4)) to 6over4(gif(4)) because some
tunnel providers like to limit bandwidth too musch. So until my
upstream ISP give me native ipv6 addresses (it's take long time maybe),
i'm going to use 6to4 instead of 6over4 continuous.
Here is my shot using 6to4:

I tried the options --with-gd=/usr/local/lib and

I have a laptop with a Radeon Mobility card on which I've been running
FreeBSD 6.2 with Xorg 7.2 using a 1024x768 resolution. On a different
slice of the same laptop, I installed FreeBSD 7.0/Xorg 7.3. With the same
xorg.conf, X is coming up with a 1400x1050 resolution, which is too fine
for my eyes.
A google search led me to think that setting the desired resolution could
be done using xrandr, but the command:

gives an error message:

I have an AMD64 Sun V20z running FreeBSD 6.3-STABLE and would like to
upgrade it to 7.0. I can't afford to have it down for very long and if
there is some problem with the upgrade, I'll need to fall back to 6.3.
Currently it is mirrored using geom mirror. What I'd like to do is take
one disk off line while I upgrade the other disk to 7.0. If there are
no problems after testing, I can then re-attach the off line mirror
otherwise in case of a problem, I can boot off 6.3.
I'm not sure how to do this with gmirror and was hoping to get some help
here with the commands. Here is the current configuration:

I'm desperately trying to migrate a Mac OS X installer to a smaller
system. The current installer is very basic: it is a Mac OS X system
that boots on an external drive and run a script that creates 3
partitions on the local disk, then restore DMGs on them, and finally set
the boot flag to the correct partition.
Technically, it is hdiutil (or diskutil) to create the partitions, asr
to restore DGMs, and bless to take care of the boot.
On of the DMGs is also a full Mac OS X system. The result is a very
heavy installer (even if we removed most of the useless stuffs).
I can build a very light FreeBSD system (using m0n0wall or FreeNAS
projects) but I will need HFS+ support.
I successfully compiled gpt fdisk to create partitions on a GPT drive.
Now I have to create the filesystem and manage the DMGs. I saw that
hfsutils can handle them, or they can be converted to IMGs. But I am not
able to find a suitable tool to create an HFS+ filesystem (even non

...FreeBSD 7.2B1 + xorg problems
I installed 7.2B1 and had some problems:
The disk has 3 partitions:
ad6s1 ca. 25GB, home, usr, etc. (freebsd install 1)
ad6s1 ca. 25GB, home, usr, etc. (freebsd install 2)
ad6s2 ca. 900 GB, data with things that I want to keep over a OS change.
On s1 I have 7.1B2, then installed 7.2B1 on s2 (I alternate upgrading
slices so I usually have a working system with X running to search for
fixes to problems, unless happens below, I had a separate disk with 7.0
that I used at first to recover the lost disklabel, see below).
The disklabel program wanted to use slice 1 too, I removed all
autoallocation and entered settings by hand on ad6s2.
PROBLEM 1: Rebooting saw slice 1's disklabel wiped out.
The data was still there, I could recover it using scan_ffs and
filling in the numbers (take sizes *4 in the disklabel file for bsdlabel
-R, because of 2048 blocks).
PROBLEM 2: Xorg: X -configure hangs. Using the output it already wrote
and inserting my previous xorg.conf data for monitor/modelines, I could
start X with a window manager etc. but no mouse movement/keyboard input
(Well, I could at least use CTRL+ALT+Fn)
I read on the net about an option to be put in xorg.conf:
option "AllowEmptyInput" "off"
in the section ServerLayout. That worked.
X is a lot faster on my geforce 6600 now in some situations, comparable
to 6.x as in 7.0/71 it was slow on websites with graphics overlays

custom or GENERIC kernel):

So, the obvious question that pops up is: what changed between six and
seven? I haven't paid attention to the differences yet since my 6.2
setup works fine and 7.0 has not been released yet -- you're probably
running 7.0-BETA3 that as such is not unlikely to have problems.
A quick look at the 7.0 TODO list reveals an interesting ``TCP issues''
item, under the ``Major issues for 7.0-RELEASE'' heading. What it me...
