new Xorg 1.5 on MSI netbook opensolaris B106

Hi All,

So I'm trying to work out why the mouse is dead on the MSI netbook when I come back out of suspend.

I upgraded to the new Xorg 1.5 which will be included in B017.

The mouse and keyboard did not work when I started gdm after the upgrade.

I had to add these lines to the /etc/X11/xorg.conf to get them back.

Section "ServerLayout"
        Identifier     "X.org Configured"
        Screen      0  "Screen0" 0 0
        InputDevice    "Mouse0" "CorePointer"
        InputDevice    "Keyboard0" "CoreKeyboard"
        Option             "AllowEmptyKey" "no"
EndSection

Section "ServerFlags"
        Option "AutoAddDevices" "False"
EndSection

Not sure if this is really the correct solution, but the Linux guys are having to use it also, Xorg 1.5 is supposed to use HAL to pick up keyboard and mouse.
