xf86-input-evdev patch


Recommended Posts



I created a ebuild with a patch for xf86-input-evdev to try and debounce my mouse button. The ebuild is at https://github.com/cor-mt/portage-overlay/blob/master/x11-drivers/xf86-input-evdev/xf86-input-evdev-2.9.2-r1.ebuildit compile and install fine but with it installed neither the keyboard nor mouse is working. If I am correct it should install 100% the same as from the funtoo/gentoo overlay without the "debounce" use flag but it gives the same symptoms.


What am I doing wrong?

You might not be doing anything wrong. It could be an issue with the patch itself. I noticed a discussion regarding Arch Linux's implementation, and the same problem is being reported there, too: https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/xf86-input-evdev-debounce/


Hmm... On second thought, you say that it doesn't work right even if the use flag is disabled, right? Sometimes something as simple as having eclasses inherited in the wrong order can cause issues. Maybe move eutils to the beginning of the line. I'm really not sure just from looking at the ebuilds.
