X11 - failed to load module keyboard

ugh no idea what happened. Updated some packages, a few X11 ones using swaret. Everything went ok. Typed in startx and I get the following

Failed to load module 'keyboard' module does not exist.

In the log file

II) LoadModule: "Keyboard"
(WW) Warning, couldn't open module Keyboard
(II) UnloadModule: "Keyboard"
(EE) Failed to load module "Keyboard" (module does not exist, 0)

Did I break something??? Was all working fine before. :/

How can I fix this?

Go to your /etc/X11/xorg.conf file and try changing a line that says Driver "keyboard" to Driver "kbd" maybe you got the new X11 release.

Yep just saw that. I generated a new xorg.conf using xorgconfig and noticed the driver was called kdb. So I changed keyboard to kdb in my original xorg.conf and now it all works.


Always the little things.
