Before I could try Qt5-Beta or reply to this thread, I had to wind-up the
work I was doing on Qt5-Alpha.

I have now been able to cross-compile Qt5-beta for my platform, but I have
been asked to use directfb platform plugin instead of eglfs which I was
formerly using (due to some flicker issues our platform is facing on eglfs).

As suggested before, in qt5-beta, the evdev keyboard and mouse plugins
build and without libudev. However they don't seem to work fully. When I
invoke my app (QtTestBrowser) with -plugin evdevkeyboard:/dev/event0
-plugin evdevmouse:/dev/event1, the mouse pointer doesn't move on the
screen, although it is moving internally (visible when hovering over some
areas of the screen). The keyboard seems completely dead.

I put debug prints in both plugins' main.cpp and they indeed being created.
Has someone used directfb plugin with mouse and keyboard and found any
issues similar? Also is it good to start looking into
