    Default HAL support dropped from xorg-server master git branch?

    Hello,

    I just emerged -e world on my machine and I ended up with no keyboard/mouse at kdm's login screen. I have had this problem before and it usually requires reemerging xf86-input-evdev or hal but this time it won't work. So I'm wondering whether HAL support has already been dropped from xorg-server, as announced a few weeks ago (I'm using live ebuilds for xorg-server).
    I'm not using an xorg.conf...

    Just to clarify this, I'm only speculating here and I'm probably wrong but at least I'd like to rule out this possibility before I continue troubleshooting

    Reading the Xorg log will probably tell you what's wrong.

    It seems it has indeed been dropped, see http://forums.gentoo.org/viewtopic-t-817825.html

    Looks like there is a fix there too.
