So, I installed ~amd64 kde plasma with sddm.
So I have a pretty standard keyboard, IBM model M with a PS/2 cord, and your standard 2 button optical mouse with a wheel button thing

Loading sddm with /etc/init.d/xdm

So I'm really stuck with this, in my /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d I have 10-amdgpu.conf(works), and I have the 40-libinput.conf that's just a link to the file in /usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d/40-libinput.
I get no keyboard response and no mouse response, I tried using the evdev drivers too, same thing.

There are no errors in xorg.0.log

I really don't know what to do. I can use the keyboard fine in the vt's I tried rebuilding the @xorg-module-rebuild

I tried evdev, libinput, evdev libinput in my INPUT_DEVICES="" rebuild the drivers and added the appropriate files to xorg.conf.d and I get nothing form keyboard or mouse, but the curser blinks in the password form. So I'm pretty sure sddm is working ok

So my keyboard doesn't seem to work in X. The keyboard is standard 102 key IBM model m PS2. it works just fine in the VT's. I don't see udev recognizing the keyboard when I plug/unplug it.

There's a problem with xorg-server-1.19.99.901 , try to mask it and then update the world, see if you will have that problem with xorg-server-1.19.5

Could you provide a citation for this problem? What is the nature of the problem? Where was it first reported?

it was caused by making my initramfs for zfs root with genkernel-next, i switched to the regular genkernel and it worked, i think something to do with udev in the initramfs or something
