I installed the (package masked) xorg-x11-7.0.0_rc. Synaptics doesn't work
with this new xorg cause the module path has changed to /usr/lib/xorg/modules
instead of /usr/lib/modules.
My temporary workaround is: ln
-s /usr/lib/modules/input/synaptics_drv.so /usr/lib/xorg/modules/input/synaptics_drv.so
It would be great if the synaptics ebuild could be slightly adjusted in the
future to work with the upcoming xorg "out of the box".
Steps to Reproduce:
X server >=7.0.0_rc1 doesn't start, complaining about missing module
X server should start and touchpad should work within X.
Maybe synaptics should be moved to x11-drivers category
this seems to have been fixed sometime prior anyway. will look into moving to
The new path has been implemented in synaptics-0.14.4-r2, but not in synaptics-0.14.3. Perhaps xorg-x11-7.0 could require the former as the minimum version.

Good idea. Done.
