About INPUT_DEVICES variable.

Question

I to all.

I've in make.conf:

>
	INPUT_DEVICES="keyboard mouse evdev"

But, if i ask wit `qlist -IC x11-dri` or with emerge -p @x11-module-rebuild

[/code]

I obtain :

	[ebuild   R    ] x11-drivers/nvidia-drivers-396.45-r1:0/396::core-hw-kit  USE="X acpi driver gtk3 kms
(multilib) tools uvm -compat -pax_kernel -static-libs -wayland" ABI_X86="32 (64) (-x32)" 86067 KiB 
[ebuild   R    ] x11-drivers/xf86-input-synaptics-1.9.0::xorg-kit  0 KiB 
[ebuild   R    ] x11-drivers/xf86-input-libinput-0.25.1::xorg-kit  362 KiB 
[ebuild   R    ] x11-drivers/xf86-input-mouse-1.9.2::xorg-kit  369 KiB 
[ebuild   R    ] x11-drivers/xf86-input-evdev-2.10.5::xorg-kit  397 KiB 
[ebuild   R    ] x11-drivers/xf86-input-keyboard-1.9.0::xorg-kit  334 KiB

Why synaptics are installed also if i've not declared it in INPUT_DEVICES ?

Thanx for answers :)

It could be a remnant of an earlier "build" or be pulled in by some other package.

This output shows that xorg-drivers should not the responsible for installing synaptics but maybe another package. For that use the command @Otakku provided.

And for synaptics being a remnant you could use the command 'emerge -pv --depclean'. If synaptics shows up in the output, that would be a good indication for that.

Does that mean that you found the reason? If yes, what was the problem?

I understood that INPUT_DEVICES is "respected"
However, I did not really understand why xf86-drivers-synaptics even if disabled is still installed.
