For some X11 configs (notably mine) it was necessary explicitly to
configure evdev in xorg.conf. This used to work with, e.g., Gnome2. At
a later stage, evdev suddenly required the udev USE flag to build. :-(
This was taken account of in part of the web page, but not in the xorg
description (which is now wrong).
The change to evdev prompted me to stop using an mdev system, since I
anticipated not having enough time to keep it working. (New job, and
such like). The way certain developers are trying to force the world and
his dog to use a rigid Red Hat specified configuration, I might be
changing my time priorities.
