from what you describe I have the impression that status quo may need fixing rather than documentation. How come xf86-input-evdev is needed but not a dependency? Is it a bug in the ebuild? Was your usage unusual in any way? Could you research that for us and come back with more details? Thanks, best, Sebastian
