Default Gateway NV51B08u AMD C-50 @ HD-6250 working

Hello OpenBSD users,
Last year I did install OpenBSD on Gateway NV51B08u with AMD C-50 processor @ HD-6250 GPU. It was working fine except graphics (couldn't run at native resolution)

I just downloaded snapshot amd64 and graphics works awesome. Christmas present for me :-)) I did not try any 3D since I have no use for it.
I am running 3GB RAM, but it will get upgraded to 4GB.
Suspend doesn't work when I close the lid. That doesn't bother me though.

Thanks to OpenBSD team for hard work making such great OS. I will be ordering release CD's.

I am attaching dmesg file for someone who is interested.

Merry Christmas or Holidays and thanks again

Can you show us your /var/log/Xorg.0.log file as well?

Default Synclient

I am using these two lines to make touchpad tap and edge scroll.

synclient TapButton1=1
synclient VertEdgeScroll=1

Can't find the way to save these settings for synclient or xinput.
I did try to put it in .xinitrc (no luck).

I am using fvwm window manager.
Is the Xorg.conf only choice to set it permanently?? I don't have Xorg configured yet.

shep
Thanks for the link. I was looking at it earlier and I did try that with .xinitrc

What I did wrong was I did put line: fvwm || xterm
at the beginning of the file.
I moved it to the bottom looks like this

synclient TapButton1=1
synclient VertEdgeScroll=1
fvwm || xterm

It works now :-)))

I am guessing that when .xinitrc execute it goes in order from top to bottom and that synclient needs to be executed before fvwm.
I am not sure if it is safe/correct way to startx with fvwm || xterm in my .xinitrc
or copy /etc/X11/xinit/xinitrc file to ~/.xinitrc and edit there??

If your hardware will suspend on zzz(8) command, all you should need is to set the sysctl machdep.lidsuspend to 1.

Did you start the apm daemon?

rc.d(8)

Mako_Elite, the zzz command is a variant of the apm(8) command. Their shared man page says:
Code:
DESCRIPTION
     apm communicates with the Advanced Power Management daemon, apmd(8),
     making requests of it for current power status or to place the system
     into a suspend or stand-by state.
So as Shep recommends, be sure the apmd program is started. You can start it manually, as well as with rc.d(8).

FYI - the apmd program communicates with ACPI or APM hardware via drivers. Your computer has ACPI. If the computer has both, the kernel makes a heuristic decision which to use at boot time.

Shep, jggimi

Thanks again,
I tried

sudo sh /etc/rc.d/apmd -df start

and it works.
It will suspend now with zzz...nice :-))).

Now I just need to make changes to make it start at boot.

thanks again
