Description Arie Middelkoop 2007-09-19 09:18:45 UTC
After running an emerge --update world --deep --newuse, the xorg-server was updated (among other packages):

x11-base/xorg-server (1.4-r1)

However, two x11-drivers that I use didn't load anymore (probably some binary incompatibility). A reinstall of

x11-drivers/xf86-input-mouse (1.2.2)
x11-drivers/synaptics (0.14.6)

fixed that.

Reproducible: Didn't try

Steps to Reproduce:



Expected Results:  
Force a reinstall of all x11-drivers after updating x11-base/xorg-server?

Except that there's no way to do it.

Make some kind of X-module-rebuild, like the existing module-rebuild for kernels? Saw it also on 1.4.0.90-r3.
