@ jur, curaga: That works great! I didn't recall the trackpad discussion in the earlier Alpha releases. For the first few releases, I only skimmed the comments, as I did not have a good chance to those releases.  I now see that the psmouse.proto=imps comment is in the Alpha3 thread.

Regardless, thanks very much! The eeePC is much more friendly now.  I did not want to go to the full XOrg X-Server.

I just encountered another problem booting with user=xxx:

/opt/tcemirror is still owned by "tc" (problem 1), causing appbrowser to quit silently (problem 2) when selecting another mirror. It writes to stderr, but this is dropped when run via wbar. Maybe "popup" should be called instead with this message.

Edit: This experience led me to running
Code: [Select]
find / -xdev -user tc on a bare TCL 3.0 alpha 7. There were quite a lot. I think these could trigger errors:
/opt/.filetool.lst
/opt/tcemirror

But I think most of the others shouldn't be also owned by tc, since they could be a security breach:
/etc/skel/* (these change the owner during copy)
/lib/modules/2.6.33.3-tinycore/*
/usr/bin/imlib2_conv
/usr/bin/imlib2_grab
/usr/bin/flwm_topside_initmenu
/usr/bin/flwm_topside_restart
/usr/lib/libstdc++.so.6.0.9
/usr/lib/libgcc_s.so.1
/usr/lib/imlib2/filters/testfilter.so
/usr/lib/imlib2/filters/bumpmap.so
/usr/lib/imlib2/filters/colormod.so
/usr/lib/imlib2/loaders/argb.so
/usr/lib/imlib2/loaders/bmp.so
/usr/lib/imlib2/loaders/jpeg.so
/usr/lib/imlib2/loaders/lbm.so
/usr/lib/imlib2/loaders/png.so
/usr/lib/imlib2/loaders/pnm.so
/usr/lib/imlib2/loaders/tga.so
/usr/lib/imlib2/loaders/xpm.so
/usr/lib/imlib2/loaders/zlib.so
/usr/lib/libfreetype.so.6.4.0
/usr/lib/libpng.so.3.43.0
/usr/lib/libpng12.so.0.43.0
/usr/lib/libImlib2.so.1.4.4

And this one owned by tc is just "odd":
/etc/motd

Yes I know, that in standard configuration sudo has no password, but changing the owner away from is "good manner" and prevents accidents cause for faulty scripts, for example, you know, the ones just hack together in a hurry. ;)

I just remembered there are more issues surrounding the eeepc - I forget the thread, but for eeepc modules to be loaded, some extensions are required. This affects stuff like extra eeepc hotkeys.
