12 After a week of frustrating nightly recompilations with emerge -e
13 failing at various points (gcc-43 not supported for *stable*
14 packages?! o.O [1]) and futile downgrade-attempts not changing the
15 situation, I've finally figured out the culprit for the keyboard
16 trouble: acpid. I had mistakenly added it to default runlevel. (IIRC,
17 due to something hinting to do it with the latest xorg-server.)
19 Anyway, after dropping acpid the keyboard is back again, functioning
20 as expected, ctrl+c copying stuff, cursor keys working (I even lost
21 them at some point), etc. (Not to forget some keyboard related conf
22 settings that appeared in /etc/hal/fdi during the emerge -e kde-meta.)
24 That should teach me to remember *all* the changes I do, not just
25 suspect the unstable packages. :)
