1 Hey,
3 I did an update lat night and my keyboard stopped working. What makes me
4 wonder though is that if x starts on it's own then i can type my password
5 and i get in, and then the keyboard stops working. If i change to another
6 tty and start x as root, there are no such issues (also starting x as user
7 from tty doesn't do anything about the keyboard not working).
9 These are the packages the update pulled in:
11 x11-libs/libX11-1.3.2
12 11-libs/libvdpau-0.3
13 app-admin/eselect-1.2.8
14 www-client/opera-10.10_pre4742
16 I tried downgrading to a stable build of libX11 but that didn't seem to
17 change anything.
19 I'm using a laptop and don't have an extern keyboard at hand to test. What
20 does more to boggle me is that the touchpad is functioning as it should.
22 Help?
