I recently did an Intrepid cli base system install on an old laptop (ie, like a server install). I then apt-get updated and aptitude safe-upgraded the sytem after editing /etc/apt/sources.list. I installed xorg, openbox window manager, and SLiM desktop manager. I rebooted and noticed that neither my keyboard nor touchpad mouse work during the gui login.

Since then I've tried the same install on two other laptops. Both newer.


Gateway SOLO5300
IBM Thinkpad T41 2373-4JU
Compaq X1030us

I've searched extensively with google, and on various linux forums including this one.

Any help would be appreciated
