No trouble:

 

Control in /etc/portage/make.conf that is present the string:

INPUT_DEVICE="mouse keyboard evdev"

 

If YOu've a laptop, the string must be

INPUT_DEVICES="mouse keyboard evdev synaptics"

 

1) You must control The services active .....

rc-config list|less

add the services that you desire unsig the command "rc-update"

Is Important that you have installed dbus and

# rc-update add dbus default

typing

# rc

So the services that you want will be enabled and disabled that you don't want.

 

may be sure to have a functional xorg-server.

 

# emerge -1 xorg-server

 

then recompile all drivers:

 

# emerge -1 `qlist -IC x11-dri`

then you make a reboot

 

A auestion: You've the xdm in tour default profile ?

 

 

For example, there are the mine:

I f You've trouble with services post your "rc-config list"

 

PS: remember to make emerge --sync periodically to maintain adjourned your system (using emerge --sinc; or eix-update then emerge -DNu world --with-bdeps=y ; emerge --depclean)

 

Could you post your

# lspci|grep -i vga

?

 

I wish to be utiles for You :)

So, just to clarify, you have both xf86-input-mouse and xf86-input-keyboard, as well as xf86-input-evdev installed? Also, are you using a desktop or laptop? If you are using a laptop, you will also want xf86-input-synaptics to be installed.

I can only make the tentative of " Take the bull by the horns."

 

0) make a memtest using a livecd that support it (it's very important ......!!!!!!)

 

1)  post Your /etc/portage/make.conf

 

2) post your eselect profile list

 

3) eselect kernel list

 

4) grep "nouv\|intel" /usr/src/linux/.config

 

5) lspci |grep -i net

 

(So I can prepare a basic kernel-config for your system).

 

If have Optimus, we'll see it later !

Hmm... shouldn't evdev take care of keyboard and mouse as well?   AFAIK, X should have migrated over to the newer API awhile ago.  I don't even use xorg.conf files anymore.  The autodetect is usually better.

 

In fact, even my touchscreen works (nice with Gnome 3.16) and hotplugging HDMI monitors (except for audio ... I have to manually change the HDMI audio to another device via pulseaudio's control panel if I yank out the hdmi cable).

Your problem is you don't want to read documentation, you just want the 'magic commands' given to you, some in this thread have tried to help you, but you either ignore or don't give the information requested appropriately,
 

how's possible tomorrow will be 7 days strugglin with this crap!

 
You make it possible by not reading documentation, and clearly having little idea of what you are doing.

 

well...then the SOLUTION is ?

 

This kind of un-polite request won't get you any much help.

# synclient
No protocol specified
Failed to connect to X Server.


Not following advice and the issuing random commands as root wont get you anywere, there's no point in executing synclient if you are not inside an X session,  you haven't even posted your .xinitrc or what desktop enviroment or window manager you are trying to start, and you seem to be doing everything as root, why are you installing X if you haven't even created a user, if you follow the install guide you should have  your own user before even be thinking of a graphical environment.

Also that uname  and the snippet of kernel configuration you posted makes me think you might be running this from a chroot, are you?

Read the documentation before asking, and make good questions, not just ' under startx, after a new install ', without giving information about your system and logs, 'under startx' doesn't even makes sense. If you want help one shouldn't be doing heuristics to figure out what's really happening on your system.

The amount of threads asking for help you have posted to this forum just for getting your first install done, tells you don't have the knowledge of a linux system, required to maintain a source based distro,  you should try learn first using a vm or spare hardware(for a source based distro at least have 2 cores and 2GB of ram with swap), take your time to learn about the linux base system, and then you can run funtoo or gentoo as a server or workstation, if you don't have the experience to quickly trouble-shoot simple problems like the ones you have posted any source-based distro will  just be maintainace pain for you, the packages in gentoo and funtoo are very vanilla, and many packages require configuration to work properly after install( that's not saying they won't work).
 

I've read in this forums funtoo can be a distro for noobs, but I strongly disagree, just learning basic shell, file system concepts and hierarchy might take a day for some people, and that desn't cover 'basic unix', so if you are a noob unless you have a week and lot's of time to read, you wont be able to make a proper installation of gentoo or funtoo, you might get something working by just coping commands from the install guide but that will soon become a nightmare to maintain.

Tia!

So you are running in a chroot, I have never tried to start X as root in a chroot,  I didn't know you could get to display something my guess is /dev/ is not being handled properly by the chroot , stop that, boot your real installation and stop using startx as root, or get a display manager you would be better using one of those.

Install a bootlader if you haven't already, and boot the real thing, theres a kernel already installed at this point I'm not sure if your 4.0.5 kernel is built or you have only installed the sources. and don't try building a personalized kernel until you know all the drivers and cpu options required for your computer, take your time(not ours) to figure out those things.
Also are you sure you want twm?

Again read the documentation you are not following a proper installation procedure, and no one wants to post a personalized version of what's in the wiki.

Genkernel for me are very good..... I use it;it isn't a symptom of incaapacity cause ..... genkernel --menuconfig aqll , with this you compile the kernel. the aid is the creation of an initramfs.

 

Gentoo gas troubles  at this moment.

 

Use Funtoo.

 

Control make.conf.

 

In make.conf set

INPUT_DEVICES="mouse keyboard evdev synaptics"
VIDEO_CARD="intel"
