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