Todo List

This is a list of things I haven't got working yet or that I'm not happy about. Anyone having ideas how to solve these problems is welcome to send me feedback or add a comment

  • getting DRM/DRI for better 3D performance to work with the OpenSource radeon graphic card driver, but I'm stuck since the code for PCI-Express seems to be brand new and doesn't work here
  • fixing suspend to RAM, at the moment the problem is resuming because of the SATA-connected harddrive
  • configuring the middle button of the trackpoint to both click and scroll. Using tp-scroll is one solution, but it makes the moving of the cursor sloppy IMO. EmulateWheel in xorg.conf works fine, but all the Xorg 6.8.2 packages I know don't support EmulateWheelTimeout. And the experimental Xorg 6.8.99 packages from Debian work fine but then I can't switch to the binary-only ATI drivers for 3D performance anymore.
  • getting distinct configurations for the touchpad (synaptics driver), the trackpoint (with EmulateWheel) and external USB mice (without EmulateWheel) working in Xorg. Touchpad is no problem since it can use a event device (/dev/input/event1 in my case), but for configuring trackpoint and external USB device it's either a) using the same configuration when /dev/input/mice (which supports hotplugging) is used for the external mouse or b) having to restart X when using /dev/input/mouse2. And using the evdev driver for the trackpoint doesn't work because it doesn't recognize EmulateWheel etc. Fiddling around with the "Dev Phys" option didn't help either, it's "same config and hotplugging" or "different config but no hotpluggig".
