This one has me baffled as it was working fine until a reboot

when trying to startx as my normal user, it quits right away with some error involving the keymap
Code:

[  2211.778] (EE) Error compiling keymap (server-0)
[  2211.779] (EE) XKB: Couldn't compile keymap
[  2211.779] (EE) XKB: Failed to load keymap. Loading default keymap instead.
[  2211.852] (EE) Error compiling keymap (server-0)
[  2211.852] (EE) XKB: Couldn't compile keymap
[  2211.852] XKB: Failed to compile keymap
[  2211.852] Keyboard initialization failed. This could be a missing or incorrect setup of xkeyboard-config.
[  2211.852]
Fatal server error:
[  2211.852] Failed to activate core devices.
[  2211.852] (EE)
Please consult the The X.Org Foundation support
    at http://wiki.x.org
 for help.
[  2211.852] (EE) Please also check the log file at "/var/log/Xorg.0.log" for additional information.
[  2211.852] (EE)
[  2211.914] Server terminated with error (1). Closing log file.


The only packages added to the system were aterm, kterm, rednotebook, freecad

xf86-input-keyboard isn't used nowadays, there's no reason to have it installed. xf86-input-evdev is the usual keyboard and mouse driver.

This looks like an xkeyboard-config problem, so I'd start with re-emerging that. And continue with posting the full log, preferably on pastebin instead of directly here.

Gusar: that's the "xf86-input-evdev" package?

according to the log section I posted (lists the error) it is an xkeyboard-config problem

No need to post more then what I did as the only additional info is the full log.

albright: You think you're in the dark ages? I've been out in the wilderness for the last 5 yrs and just now returning to Gentoo - Remember gcc 4 upgrades? How about doing a stage1 install?

Taking the easy route on the rebuild of xf86-input-evdev by doing another world rebuild - needed after clearing the lxde-meta packages along with other testing/broken packages. If the world rebuild fixes the problem, I'll update and add solved to this thread.

Well the problem may have been the radeon-ucode package as I've removed it. Also did an emerge --depclean followed by a revdep-rebuild and nothing seems to be broken
