I just upgraded my system.

My Xorg.0.log says evdev is not loaded, and it can't be found. I assume from other posts the Nvidia driver should not be looking for evdev?

    [ 1034.336] (WW) Warning, couldn't open module evdev
    [ 1034.336] (II) UnloadModule: "evdev"
    [ 1034.336] (II) Unloading evdev
    [ 1034.336] (EE) Failed to load module "evdev" (module does not exist, 0)
    [ 1034.336] (EE) No input driver matching `evdev'
    [ 1034.336] (II) config/udev: Adding input device Lite-On Technology IBM Enhanced Performance Wireless USB Keyboard and Mouse (/dev/input/event7)
    [ 1034.336] (**) Lite-On Technology IBM Enhanced Performance Wireless USB Keyboard and Mouse: Applying InputClass "evdev pointer catchall"


I found an old post that said for the Nvidia binary driver, xorg.conf only needs to mention the video board, so I simplified the xorg.conf file, which did not help:

    # nvidia-xconfig: X configuration file generated by nvidia-xconfig
    # nvidia-xconfig: version 1.0 (buildmeister@builder62) Tue Jan 6 09:43:54 PST 2009
    Section "Device"
    Identifier "Nvidia Card"
    Driver "nvidia"
    EndSection


Here are my xorg server use flags, if any help:

    tvscribe log # equery uses xorg-server
    [ Legend : U - final flag setting for installation]
    [ : I - package is installed with flag ]
    [ Colors : set, unset ]
    * Found these USE flags for x11-base/xorg-server-1.13.4:
    U I
    - - dmx : Build the Distributed Multiheaded X server
    - - doc : Adds extra documentation (API, Javadoc, etc). It is recommended to enable per package instead
    of globally
    + + ipv6 : Adds support for IP version 6
    - - kdrive : Build the kdrive X servers
    - - minimal : Install a very minimal build (disables, for example, plugins, fonts, most drivers, non-critical
    features)
    + + nptl : Enable support for Native POSIX Threads Library, the new threading module (requires linux-2.6
    or better usually)
    - - static-libs : Build static libraries
    + + suid : Enable setuid root program, with potential security risks
    - - tslib : Build with tslib support for touchscreen devices
    + + udev : Enable sys-fs/udev integration (device discovery, power and storage device support, etc)
    - - xnest : Build the Xnest server
    + + xorg : Build the Xorg X server (HIGHLY RECOMMENDED)
    - - xvfb : Build the Xvfb server

Welcome to the forums.

Just a guess, but I don't think evdev is installed based on the above output. I would try emerge -av1 x11-drivers/xf86-input-evdev if it is already installed or xorg still fails, try emerge -av1 $(qlist -IC x11-drivers/*) to rebuild x11's drivers. This is actually a good practice after an xorg update.[/quote]


A final thought: while there is nothing wrong with the way you posted the information, the norm here is to use code tags rather than list tags. This makes it a little easier to read.

EDIT: Actually, I think this is the same problem as this topic. Basically, the requirements for your xorg config have changed. The solution appears to be in the second to last post.

Thanks. That worked. The reason I thought that edev was not needed was this post:

https://forums.gentoo.org/viewtopic-t-891314-start-0.html

After installing xf86-input-evdev the problem went away.

There must be no portage dependencies on edev on my system, because I did a deep rebuild on world.

Of course, my system does not have HAL either, but I assume HAL is now deprecated?
