update to current - mouse and keyboard not working


Hi, today I update my two machines (both running Slackware Current) using slackpkg and after restart mouse and keyboard aren't working.
My first machine is a PC using integrated Intel videocard and wireless a4tech mouse and keyboard, here is a x.org log:

http://dl.dropbox.com/u/605085/Xorg.0.log

My second machine is a notebook using nvidia card, touchpad and keyboard not working, here's a log:

http://dl.dropbox.com/u/605085/Xorg2.log

Keyboard works before I start X.org so I type "Xorg - configure" but it didn't works.

Is there any solution to fix this (other then to reinstall packages from x directory of Slackware 13.37)?

Yes, I had the same problem, but it was totally my fault. I forgot to launch the mandatory
Code:
slackpkg install-new
After that it worked.

=>
Code:
[    31.013] (EE) Failed to load /usr/lib64/xorg/modules/input/evdev_drv.so: libmtdev.so.1: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
You didn't update your installation properly. New package "mtdev" is missing. (From the Change Log: "x/mtdev-1.1.2-x86_64-1.txz: Added. This is a multitouch library needed by the evdev and synaptics drivers.")

When updating your installation, *always* do "slackpkg install-new" before you do "slackpkg upgrade-all".

Thanks a lot! Now it works. I didn't know option "install-new" in slackpkg, in the future I will remember to use it

Would you like to explain? On my -current mirror /patches is empty (besides some text-files), so I don't understand that command.

It's part of a script I run when I look for updates.
So if there are patches they will be installed also.

Code:
slackpkg update
slackpkg upgrade-all
slackpkg install-new
slackpkg install patches
Kind regards

A binary driver from ATI?

and it doesn't work or it wont install?

EDIT

And I got caught by the mtdev thing, seems it becomes a dependency for every input driver when they get built with it present.

yes, the binary from ati

install, but doesnt works.....the effects of kde are off and if i run

aticonfig --initial --input=/etc/X11/xorg.conf , and startx, fails

only erasing xorg.conf works......but without effects

uninstalls radeon_hd and some other packages, maybe you have a conflict there.
