WARN: postinst
You must rebuild all drivers if upgrading from <xorg-server-1.9
because the ABI changed. If you cannot start X because
of module version mismatch errors, this is your problem.
You can generate a list of all installed packages in the x11-drivers
category using this command:

Code:
emerge portage-utils; qlist -I -C x11-drivers/

As it just takes a couple of minutes to emerge your drivers (probably just evdev and your video driver, ) I would make a habit of just emerging everytime you emerge xorg-server.
