Currently I have installed city/xorg-server1.12 - I do not know why. I have to replace it with extra/xorg-server however there are obvious dependeny problems.
How can I force pacman/yaourt to skip dependencies and force install extra/xorg-server package ?
I have tried with
sudo pacman --force -Sd xorg-server
but without any luck.

pacman -S xorg-server xf86-input-evdev
Completely wrong application of --force. PLEASE don't use this option unless you know exactly what it is and what it's going to do.
There shouldn't be dependency problems, what exactly are you running into?

Please read the man page.
