Choosing xorg input devices driver

Gentoo. I'm going to replace udev with mdev, so I need to use xf86-input-keyboard and xf86-input-mouse drivers instead of xf86-input-evdev. I have /usr/share/X11/xor.conf.d/10-evdev.conf file containing Driver "evdev" entries. What is the name of these drivers and how I can override evdev drivers? Thanks.

I think it is "kbd" and "mouse". Get rid of the entry 'Driver "evdev"'.

Got it worked. Also, re-emerged xorg-server with "-udev" USE-flag (Gentoo). Thanks


busybox, drivers, gentoo, udev, xorg
