Failed To Load Evdev

If you update xorg (which OP didnt list, but a new version just went stable) you need to rebuild its drivers (unless they were automatically rebuilt due to version bump). Removing the evdev driver caused errors and warnings such as the following: (WW) Warning, couldn't open module evdev (II) UnloadModule: "evdev" (EE) Failed to load module "evdev" (module does not exist, https://forums.gentoo.org/viewtopic-t-891314-start-0.html

Took some time. What I want is one of these "nice to have"s which would take an inordinate amount of work, if it's even possible.

  1. Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): xorg-x11-server-Xorg-1.4.99.901-1.20080307.fc9.i386 How reproducible: Always Actual results: evdev driver is used.
  2. In the meantime, I'll carry on not starting Gnome at boot-up.
  3. Whether X starts or not, post Xorg.0.log again.

  9. As a start try, installing the following (if missing): mesa-libGL mesa-dri-drivers xorg-x11-drv-evdev You may be able to use xorg-x11-drv-libinput instead of evdev.

Or maybe it needs a script which would take the output of "emerge -puND world", extract the ebuild names, and run them through "grep ewarn".

He says "I have more than one. This is an old card, don't expect too much. When you look in an ebuild for DEPENDS, you are using the first case.

What might be the reason for that? Offline #9 2012-02-02 11:08:31 raxbg Member Registered: 2011-04-05 Posts: 91 Re: [SOLVED] evdev not working Yesterday I uninstalled every xf86-video package.

According to /var/log/Xorg.0.log, evdev cant't be loaded any more (see below). weblink Recompiling the same source code produces a different binary? > Not quite: > Rebuilding the same sources against different headers produces a > different binary. > > Presumably, it uses C Comment 3 Sergio Monteiro Basto 2008-06-23 20:29:23 EDT you need update /usr/share/doc/initscripts-8.76.2/sysconfig.txt Note You need to log in before you can comment on or make changes to this bug.
