updating to libdrm-2.4.14 causes the Scroll Lock LED which indicates the alternative keyboard layout to stop working. The keyboard changes is just the led tha does not switch on.
Steps to Reproduce:
1.emerge -va =x11-libs/libdrm-2.4.14
2.emerge -v xorg-server && qlist -I -C x11-drivers/ | xargs emerge -v
3. ALT-SHIFT: keyboard layout changes but led remains off.
4. reverting back to =x11-libs/libdrm-2.4.13, led works again.
The relevant section of my xorg.conf:
Option "XkbRules" "xorg"
Option "XkbModel" "pc105"
Option "XkbLayout" "us,el"
Option "XkbVariant" "basic,extended"
Option "XkbOptions" "grp:alt_shift_toggle,grp_led:scroll"
Relevant instaled software.
are you _100%_ sure that upgrading/downgrading _only_ libdrm fixes your issue?
Could I ask you to try again?
Just a thought, could you try with a newer version of nvidia-drivers?
Oh and please provide your xorg.conf and Xorg.0.log

Thank you for you reply.
I emerged libdrm-2.4.14 again and I also did
emerge -v xorg-server mesa && qlist -I -C x11-drivers/ | xargs emerge -v
and the LED worked!
The only difference this time was that I also reinstalled media-libs/mesa, something that I omitted to do the first time.
Once again thank you for your time.
