xorg R6.8.0 - No core keyboard (solution inside)

upgrading to xorg R6.8.0 i was not longer able to start X

...
(EE) No Input driver matching `Keyboard'
...
No core keyboard

Fatal server error:
failed to initialize core devices
...

the module keyboard you must now be written in all small-caps!! ("Keyboard" is wrong, "keyboard" is ok)

You can also type kbd instead of keyboard.

I just found this out the hard way. After a routine -Syu I logged in/out of X I had no core keyboard. I imagine that will catch quite a few newer ppl and someone might want to make note of it on the news page that they need to either run xorgconfig again or edit xorg.conf.

Someone bug-report this, so we can have an echo "do that and that for Keyboard" in the xorg package. Thanks guys!

I also found out the hard way smile

I agree with tenthirteen that it would be useful for newer users to notify them about this somehow... (unless their config already has it lowercase?)

I have arch installed in vmware, and even after fixing the keyboard I still have a problem with the mouse.  The driver it is using is vmmouse.  It worked until I upgraded.
