After a system update, the laptop keyboard has stopped working, what's wierd though is if I connect a usb keyboard it works, not only that but if during booting gentoo the usb keyboard is connected, the laptop keyboard works just fine.

I've tried re-emerging the xf-86-keyboard and evdev but no luck there.

The laptop is a lenovo g50-80
I honestly do not know where to begin troubleshooting on this one.

Mine messed up too, for me the arrow keys stopped working and pgup had turned into \. Only in the gui though, in a tty it was fine.

I use zfs so I rolled back a snaphot from a couple of days ago and then updated again, which worked. I think =x11-base/xorg-drivers-1.18-r1 is the culprit.

I am having major problems with this and more. Neither my internal keyboard nor mouse work, and external ones only work if I plug in after X starts. My system does not recognize the sound card at boot, but if I manually modprobe the module it works fine. Similarly, it does not automatically start the network, and NetworkManager just soft blocks the wifi. If I manually unblock then restart wpa_supplicant and run dhcpcd it works fine, although NetworkManager still insists there is no network. I am pulling my hair out over this, and do not know what to do. Everything was working fine until I installed the following 48 packages in an update:

The udev thing is a just a virtual package, I have eudev 3.1.5 installed. Anybody have any ideas?

OK, solved most of my issues by downgrading udev-init-scripts from 32 to 27. I got my mouse/keyboard/sound back to normal, but still have to manually start the network. Maybe that's a networkmanager issue, since that was updated too, I'll keep playing with that. I don't know what they did in the udev-init-scripts update, but it ain't working ...

Hi, I had a similar problem yesterday. The problem was that after the update I run depclean and accidentally removed x11-drivers/xf86-input-evdev.
You can check /var/log/emerge.log if you are not sure. I hope this helps you! :)

It's ok to remove xf86-input-evdev when you are using xf86-input-libinput though.
