1.12.0.902 (1.12.1 RC2): http://old.nabble.com/-ANNOUNCE--xorg-server-1.12.0.901-%281.12.1-RC1%29-tt33605693.html#a33605693

No special nvidia or evdev recommendations. The ones from [extra] work just fine.

No special nvidia or evdev recommendations. The ones from [extra] are enough.

1.11.99.1 (1.12 development release 1): http://www.spinics.net/lists/xorg/msg53284.html

Works just fine with the latest Nvidia driver (290.10) with -ignoreABI. Needed 'inputproto-git' and 'libpciacces-git' as new dependencies. I probably recommend using 'xf86-input-evdev-git' too (for Input ABI v14), though.

1.11.2-2: Added latest upstream fixes.

Det commented on 2011-07-04 04:06

Yes, as I already said the _input_ ABI is 13 ("...an unsupported input driver ABI version (have 13.0, need < 13.0)"), while the video ABI is that 11.

The evdev package available on the repos should have the input ABI of 12 but it still worked for me. If you're not using something else you could try giving a shot with the git version (xf86-input-evdev-git) [1], which should work just fine as it uses the version 13 input ABI. The build's really fast anyway, it's just a single <50kB .so file (comes up in seconds).

But still, the new X server doesn't look good (whether it be because of the Nvidia driver or the server itself) so I recommend you to use either the X server available on the repos (which is 1.10.2) or 1.10.3 RC2 (1.10.2.902), which uses the same ABIs as the repo's server but includes some of the fixes you get with 1.11 RC1. I even use 1.10.3 RC2 myself since that's the best choice for me ATM (just changed the pkgver to '1.10.2.902' and the first md5sum line to '4f6823101715b363b936a50421898680').

E: also, I'm not sure but the text "This server has a video driver ABI version of 11.0 that this driver does not officially support." might still come up even if you used the 280.04 Nvidia driver since the support for X server 1.11 (video ABI 11) is only preliminary and not supposed to work as it should.
