Description

I think it does if you manually start it from the console. Something weird going on there.

For now, disable the server and re-enable it after the XBMC integration release since XBMC should not require the X.org environment.

For some reason the X.org server was replaced by kdrive/TinyX and the keyboard/mouse drivers were not enabled in that build. I've enabled them and am running a test build on 32-bit and 64-bit systems. After testing the build I will know if this fixes the problem or if I need to go back to the full X.org server.

After testing with TinyX and the evdev/mouse/keyboard drivers enabled in buildroot and evdev.ko kernel module loaded, I cannot get the keyboard or mouse to work under X. So I'm disabling TinyX and going back to the Modular X.org configuration. This worked previously so I expect it to still work, but you never know....

Re-enabled X.org and disabled TinyX. Tested on hardware. Mouse and keyboard now work correctly.
