    I had the same problem and was able to fix it by adding the following line to my xorg.conf file.

Section "ServerFlags"
Option "AutoAddDevices" "False"

       I also found a second way to fix the problem. I needed to have hal running and enable input events in my kernel .config (and recompile the kernel). I hope this helps.

Subject: Problem with xorg-server-1.8.1

After upgrading xorg-server from 1.7.6 to 1.8.1, I was not able to get my input devices (mouse and keyboard) recognised. The intel video driver worked after being rebuilt against the new server, but rebuilding the input device drivers had no effect. I have now restored the old version and its drivers and everything works normally.
