Hello! I installed gentoo yesterday, and whenever I start xorg, my keyboard stops working. Here's what I've tried so far:

Added INPUT_DEVICES="evdev" and the use flags dbus, consolekit, and hal to make.conf,
emerge -DNau world,
emerge -e system, and
emerge eudev (that fixed something from my previous install).

I couldn't start hald, nor could I emerge it (no ebuilds to satisfy hal or hald). I'm using kernel 3.18.16-gentoo installed through genkernel, but I also have 4.0.5-gentoo which doesn't work with my nvidia drivers

It also might be worth noting that xdm froze the keyboard AND mouse so I uninstalled it.
Thanks for the help. I ended up reinstalling.

Your strategy is really out of date. hal has been dead for years and consolekit is basically dead too.

evdev uses udev. Maybe starting with the guide would be a good place.

Apologies if I take a while to respond. I'm currently working on the dematerialization circuit for my blue box.
