Default x11-drivers/xf86-input-evdev-2.7.0: Use flag udev seems compulsory.

Hi, Gentoo.

I've just emerge --sync'd, and there's a massive amount of X server
updates. When I try emerge -auND, I get told:

The following USE changes are necessary to proceed:
#required by x11-drivers/xf86-input-evdev-2.7.0, required by
x11-base/xorg-drivers-1.12[input_devices_evdev]
>=x11-base/xorg-server-1.12.2 udev

. So I need the udev use flag. This is somewhat distressing, since
I've been running my system on busybox's mdev for several months. It's
looking like I'll not be able to continue doing so.

Any suggestions, anybody, how I can now best proceed?

Try putting the following line in your package.use:

media-libs/mesa gallium g3dvl xa

Sorry, disregard my last message...I haven't had enough coffee yet this
morning.

The message indicates that =x11-base/xorg-drivers-1.12 *WITH EVDEV*
requires udev. I don't use evdev. I keyworded
"=x11-base/xorg-drivers-1.12 ~x86" and I get...

[d531][root][~] emerge -pv x11-base/xorg-drivers

These are the packages that would be merged, in order:

Calculating dependencies... done!
[ebuild U ~] x11-base/xorg-drivers-1.12 [1.11] INPUT_DEVICES="keyboard mouse -acecad -aiptek -elographics -evdev -fpit -hyperpen -joystick -mutouch -penmount -synaptics -tslib -vmmouse -void -wacom" VIDEO_CARDS="nvidia -apm -ark -ast -cirrus -dummy -epson -fbdev -fglrx -geode -glint -i128 -i740 -intel -mach64 -mga -modesetting% -neomagic (-newport) -nouveau -nv (-omapfb) -qxl -r128 -radeon -s3 -s3virge -savage -siliconmotion -sis (-sunbw2) (-suncg14) (-suncg3) (-suncg6) (-sunffb) (-sunleo) (-suntcx) -tdfx -tga -trident -v4l -vesa -via -virtualbox -vmware (-voodoo) (-chips%) (-impact%) (-rendition%) (-sisusb%) (-tseng%)" 0 kB

For starters, I suggest...

grep evdev /etc/make.conf

...and look at what you have to get rid of. My machine works fine
without evdev. Actually, I start my USE var in make.conf with "-*".
Then I add only items that I want, or that software I want requires.
