I installed on my ThinkPad T60 FreeBSD 7.2 with GENERIC kernel plus a few ALTQ options and I'm unable to force HAL to use FDI files. In result I can't use different devices.

I followed that FAQ: Hardware Abstraction Layer (HAL) FAQ...

I put in /etc/rc.conf file these lines:

Code:
dbus_enable="YES"
hald_enable="YES"
I put in /usr/local/share/hal/fdi/preprobe/20thirdparty/ these two FDI files:

disable-touchpad.fdi
Code:
<match key="info.product" string="SynPS/2 Synaptics TouchPad">
    <merge key="input.x11_options.TouchpadOff" type="string">1</merge>
</match>
and

cat mouse-wheel.fdi
Code:
<match key="info.product" string="TPPS/2 IBM TrackPoint">
    <merge key="input.x11_options.EmulateWheel" type="string">true</merge>
    <merge key="input.x11_options.EmulateWheelButton" type="string">2</merge>
    <merge key="input.x11_options.YAxisMapping" type="string">4 5</merge>
    <merge key="input.x11_options.XAxisMapping" type="string">6 7</merge>
    <merge key="input.x11_options.Emulate3Buttons" type="string">true</merge>
    <merge key="input.x11_options.EmulateWheelTimeout" type="string">200</merge>
</match>
After each change I restarted HAL:

# /usr/local/etc/rc.d/hald restart

Without any result -- my FDI files don't work. I tried also some FDI files provided with FreeBSD:


10-x11-input.fdi
Code:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="ISO-8859-1"?>
<deviceinfo version="0.2">
  <device>
    <match key="info.capabilities" contains="input.keyboard">
      <!-- If we're using Linux, we use evdev by default (falling back to
           keyboard otherwise). -->
      <merge key="input.x11_driver" type="string">kbd</merge>
      <match key="/org/freedesktop/Hal/devices/computer:system.kernel.name"
             string="Linux">
        <merge key="input.x11_driver" type="string">evdev</merge>
        <merge key="input.xkb.layout" type="string">pl</merge>
      </match>
    </match>
  </device>
</deviceinfo>
and

10-x11-synaptics.fdi
Code:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="ISO-8859-1"?>
<deviceinfo version="0.2">
  <device>
    <match key="info.capabilities" contains="input.touchpad">
        <merge key="input.x11_driver" type="string">synaptics</merge>
        <merge key="input.x11_options.SHMConfig" type="string">true</merge>
        <merge key="input.x11_options.MaxTapMove" type="string">2000</merge>
        <merge key="input.x11_options.VertEdgeScroll" type="string">true</merge>
        <merge key="input.x11_options.VertTwoFingerScroll" type="string">true</merge>
        <merge key="input.x11_options.HorizTwoFingerScroll" type="string">true</merge>
        <merge key="input.x11_options.CircularScrolling" type="string">true</merge>
    </match>
  </device>
</deviceinfo>
Independently of the changes I made in the system the result of the command lshal -t is always the same:

What can I do to force HAL to read FDI files?

I just discovered an error in my 10-x11-synaptics.fdi file. I put the line defining keyboard layout inside the Linux section. In result FreeBSD ignored that switch. This is the correct keyboard definition:

10-x11-synaptics.fdi
Code:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="ISO-8859-1"?>
<deviceinfo version="0.2">
  <device>
    <match key="info.capabilities" contains="input.keyboard">
      <!-- If we're using Linux, we use evdev by default (falling back to
           keyboard otherwise). -->
      <merge key="input.x11_driver" type="string">kbd</merge>
      <merge key="input.xkb.layout" type="string">pl</merge>
      <match key="/org/freedesktop/Hal/devices/computer:system.kernel.name"
             string="Linux">
        <merge key="input.x11_driver" type="string">evdev</merge>
      </match>
    </match>
  </device>
</deviceinfo>
HAL reads the above file and allows to write Polish-language texts. So HAL in my system works properly but there are some problems with my FDI files. As yet I repaired one FDI file.

I tried FDI file disabling TouchPad. It uses only one merge key so it's relatively simple. I put it in that directory:

/usr/local/share/hal/fdi/preprobe/20thirdparty/

I tested it with ten different match keys:

Code:
    <match key="info.product" string="SynPS/2 Synaptics TouchPad">
    <match key="info.product" string="Synaptics TouchPad">
    <match key="info.product" string="TouchPad">
    <match key="info.product" string="Synaptics">
    <match key="info.product" string="SynPS/2">
    <match key="info.product" string="SynPS">
    <match key="info.capabilities" contains="input.touchpad">
    <match key="info.capabilities" contains="input.synaptics">
    <match key="info.capabilities" contains="input.synps/2"-->
    <match key="info.capabilities" contains="input.synps">
After each change I reloaded HAL with that command:

# /usr/local/etc/rc.d/hald restart

and I restarted X Window.

Here's my 10-disable-touchpad.fdi:

Code:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="ISO-8859-1"?> <!-- -*- SGML -*- -->

<deviceinfo version="0.2">
  <device>
    <!-- match key="info.product" string="SynPS/2 Synaptics TouchPad" -->
    <!-- match key="info.product" string="Synaptics TouchPad" -->
    <!-- match key="info.product" string="TouchPad" -->
    <!-- match key="info.product" string="Synaptics" -->
    <!-- match key="info.product" string="SynPS/2" -->
    <!-- match key="info.product" string="SynPS" -->
    <match key="info.capabilities" contains="input.touchpad">
    <!-- match key="info.capabilities" contains="input.synaptics" -->
    <!-- match key="info.capabilities" contains="input.synps/2"-->
    <!-- match key="info.capabilities" contains="input.synps" -->
        <merge key="input.x11_options.TouchpadOff" type="string">1</merge>
    </match>
  </device>
</deviceinfo>
In any case I managed to disable TouchPad. Assuming that I can't disable it with that simple FDI file I don't wonder I'm unable to implement more sophisticated TouchPad configuration with other FDI files. There's something wrong with my FDI files or HAL and I don't know how can I repair it.

Are you sure hald is restarting? Try forcerestarting it, instead of just restarting it.

I have many problems with HAL myself. Some things work and other simple ones (like assigning a compose key) don't.
Since it has become a dependency for Xorg, all I've been witnessing is its odd behavior, and I wonder how much time I'll be able to bare with it before I discard it for good.

Hi Beastie! Nice nick...

I tried all the above variants once again restarting HAL with the command:

# /usr/local/etc/rc.d/hald forcerestart

I did it twice. First time with empty /boot/loader.conf and second time with /boot/loader.conf including these lines:

Code:
hw.psm.synaptics_support="1"
debug.psm.loglevel="4"
All these attempts failed.

Your experience with HAL is a bad prognostics. In Linux my FDI files simply work. In FreeBSD it's a matter of some esoteric knowledge that I didn't possess yet.

I'm new to FreeBSD. I'm testing it for less than ten days. The most of that time I spent trying to force to work HAL. The only device I managed to configure using HAL is Polish-language keyboard. The main device I'd like to configure with HAL is TrackPoint on my ThinkPad.

I tested HAL with that command:

HAL accepts FDI file with keyboard configuration because it sees ``AT Keyboard'' product. It ignores TrackPoint and TouchPad related FDI files because it doesn't see these products.

FreeBSD's HAL sees 62 devices. Slackware's HAL sees 114 devices.

Among devices lacking in FreeBSD and appearing in Slackware Linux there are:

Code:
  info.product = 'SynPS/2 Synaptics TouchPad'  (string)
  info.product = 'TPPS/2 IBM TrackPoint'  (string)
So it seems it's impossible to configure IBM TrackPoint and Synaptics TouchPad with FreeBSD 7.2 and HAL.

Intel Pro Wireless 3945

Hi w1k0

First of all I would like to apologize for introducing this issue here a bit off topicbut I seached in "mobile computing" for "Intel Pro Wireless" and found nothing about its configuration under FreeBSD 7.2... :-(

Once more, please excuse me forum users...

HAL accepts FDI file with keyboard configuration because it sees ``AT Keyboard'' product. It ignores TrackPoint and TouchPad related FDI files because it doesn't see these products.

I Have noticed that your laptop has the same brand of wifi card that I have in my Asus F3jr... an Intel Pro Wireless 3945 ABG

May you please detail what have you done to have it configured under FreeBSD 7.2...?

Thanks in advance

Best Regards


Alex

@AlexVader: I have the same wireless card in my Thinkpad X61. It is supported by the wpi driver. The manpage for wpi and the wireless chapter in the FreeBSD handbook should tell you everything about how to configure it.

Sorry for the late answer. I came back to my Slackware after one week of trying FreeBSD. Unfortunately I don't use WiFi. I use DSL cable modem. So I can't answer to your question.
