MSI S270 laptop. I routinely emerge --sync -q && emerge -quDN --keep-going world or equivalent. I did so on 2 December and it seems to have done some strangeness. Before that, I did so about four weeks ago without problems.

Because of the lack of linking with LDAP, I've hard-masked gnutls-3.

Neither revdep-rebuild nor emerge -quDN world find anything to do so the system is up to date as of 6 December 2012.

The machine boots fine with a nice column of [OK] down the right. It behaves correctly until X starts up. I've rc-update del xdm for now. When X/KDE starts,
  • it starts in 1024x768 although the screen is 1200x800
  • the keyboard does nothing (including caps. lock)
  • KDE reports that the audio hardware is missing.


So what's going on ? I repeat, the machine was working correctly up to the current batch of updates. /usr is not on a separate partiition, so nothing to do with udev wierdness in that area.

Obvious first question when anyone reports problems with X and I/O: did you upgrade the X server and not rebuild the relevant x11-drivers packages?

Sorry, yes, I forgot to mention: all packages mentioned in /var/db/pkg/x11-drivers/ rebuilt.

In any case, that wouldn't explain why the sound has gone ...

Udev is currently broken and not loading modules. You'll have to add them to /etc/conf.d/modules manually.

Hmm. I'm obviously adding too much because that locks it on boot. I wonder how long udev will stay broken.

I didn't even realise that udev was related to loading of modules ... I assumed that was entirely the responsbility of the kernel.

... or should we be using eudev instead ?

:roll: It was broken only on ebuild side and just for a short time.
It should work correctly now.

I emerge --synced 24 hours ago then emerge -quDN world, revdep-rebuild and haskell-updater as well for good measure (not that it's related) but it's still at 1024x768.
