Heres pretty much everything i did.

I updated portage.

I unmerged xorg-server

I emerged xorg-x11

I completely updated my world and then did a depclean. Now when i start X i get this.

Code:
[    25.810] (II) LoadModule: "evdev"
[    25.810] (WW) Warning, couldn't open module evdev
[    25.810] (II) UnloadModule: "evdev"
[    25.810] (II) Unloading evdev
[    25.810] (EE) Failed to load module "evdev" (module does not exist, 0)
[    25.810] (EE) No input driver matching `evdev'


Full log: http://pastebin.com/vvJTcU6c

I tried a few things like re-emerging the xorg-drivers but that didn't seem to help

Code:

INPUT_DEVICES="evdev"


emerge -pv xorg-drivers also tells me that it should be downloading evdev.

I tried googling, rather than just searching the forum, i did find a thread on this forum in a language i do not understand with the same issue... but unfortunately... don't understand the language, i also found a similar thread where the problem was withing xorg.conf, but that was not the case here. maybe i'm just bad at searching?

portage wasn't telling me anything special at the end of the emerge. except "etc/conf.d/xdm needs updating" which i just update. it also says my nvidia drivers got corrupted, so i just... reinstall them, and fixed. it also once gave me that xorg-drivers was corrupted, and likewise i just reinstalled that and it disappeared, if it gives me that something is corrupt that i'm not using i run depclean.

I usually read it if the emerge says something, for example it at some point gave me that something was corrupt.... so i fixed it with depclean, etc.

You the yahoo kind of person? everyone has their preferences i guess...

If you're trying to tell me about this http://forums.gentoo.org/viewtopic-t-891314-start-0.html i already just said, the solution in there did not work for me, i tried erasing everything from my xorg.conf except the required lines (as stated in that thread.) but all for nothing.

You could light up six candles, dress up in black robe and call for superior power. Or you could check if x11-drivers/xf86-input-evdev is present in your system. If in doubt you could recompile it with emerge -1 against your current Xorg sources.

>>> No outdated packages were found on your system. definetly is there.

But because i'm having a problem I tried doing emerge -1 x11-drivers/xf86-input-evdev as you suggested and that saved me.

Thanks a lot jaglover. very much appreciated.

You are welcome. :)

Tip: Install app-portage/eix. Then you can run
Code:
eix evdev
and it will tell you whether it is installed or not. While this is not the only method to check for packages eix is a great tool and I recommend you install it.
