Hi

I got fed up with the lock screen not working properly so I thought I would try the flickering fglrx drivers. But, I see that even with ati-drivers-15.12. installed, emerge -vDNu world is stll pulling in the wrong xorg-server.

ie.
ati-config
RDEPEND="
<=x11-base/xorg-server-1.17.49[-minimal]
doesn't block xorg-1.18.

Is this a new feature? This doesn't seem right.

Annoying, isn't it? I had to add '>x11-base/xorg-server-1.17.4' and '>x11-base/xorg-drivers-1.17' to package.mask in my ~amd64 installation with ati-drivers-15.12-r1 installed.

I dug a bit deeper and found that xf86-input-evdev sucks in
RDEPEND=">=x11-base/xorg-server-1.18[udev]
actually there are a couple of versions that have this dependancy so a quick change to
1.17 makes all these problems go away.

Does evdev 2.10 really depend on 1.18 - it seems to work quite find with 1.17?

Yes, I didn't mention it but I also found xf86-input-evdev-2.10.1 to be the culprit, hence my drop back to x11-base/xorg-drivers-1.17.

According to the Gentoo developer who changed the dependency in the xf86-input-evdev-2.10.0 and xf86-input-evdev-2.10.1 ebuilds on 23 January in Commit 404347d0:

Gentoo-Bug:_564358

He refers to Gentoo Bug No. 564358 - x11-drivers/xf86-input-evdev-2.10.0 - file collision with x11-base/xorg-server - /usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d/10-evdev.conf.

this is frustrating ati-drivers looking for xorg-server 1.17 but xf86-input-evdev need xorg-server 1.8

then with 1.18 dosen't work ati-drives and with 1.17 don't work keyboard and mouse...

how i have to do for make working my keyboard without xf86-input-evdev?

the mouse is working but keyboard don't work well , it have a infinite looping typing bug and is unusable with this config.

Very sorry for necro-posting but this post is the top Google search result for: "ati-drivers x11 1.18 gentoo" - Alas, this is still an issue 6 months on.

In order to fix this, I had to add the following lines to /etc/portage/package.mask:

Code:
>=x11-base/xorg-server-1.18
>=x11-base/xorg-drivers-1.18
>=x11-drivers/xf86-input-evdev-2.10.0


Hope this is of help to future googlers.

You have deferred the problem by telling Portage not to remind you of the issue, but the underlying problem remains. To use X server 1.18 or later, you need drivers that have been updated to work with it. The former developers of the ATI proprietary drivers abandoned their package and will not update it to work with the new X server. You must switch to maintained video drivers or accept not receiving any further X server updates, which may at some point include not receiving security updates. Your mask elects the latter.

Apologies for the misinformation. Had not realised that these were unmaintained. Is the performance of the open-source drivers now up to scratch? I never had much luck with them before.
