The two packges that were unmerged were xf86-input-keyboard and xf86-input-mouse but i dont know why?

i had, previous to that problem written eudev instead of evdev  in input devices after reading what is eudev and evdev i change my make.conf to evdev, is keyboard and mouse needed in make.conf or just evdev would take care of that? my etc/make.conf look like this now.


INPUT_DEVICES="evdev keyboard mouse"
USE="X xorg dbus gtk gtk2 gtk3 tools (multilib) alsa"
ABI_X86="32 64"
