How to configure workable kernel and not break it?

Question

Hello dear forum members! My Portage emerged and successfully compiled kernel debian-sources-4.14.2-1 with no any question to me. I edited /etc/boot.conf, run boot-update and my grub booted automatically in my new kernel. Xorg, xdm, Slim, LXDE worked fine.

But today I tried to "root out" IPv6 support from my kernel just for trying to optimize something. I run

# cd /usr/src/linux
# genkernel --menuconfig all

switched off line "Networking ->IPv6 for RxRPC" and saved my config to without-ipv6.config. Exited menuconfig and genkernel continued to compile kernel with my new configurations.

But after reboot Xorg failed to start, cause "Screens not found". I rebooted to my old kernel debian-sources-4-8 everything is ok.

I want you to teach me use genkernel, cause it is the second time I use it and the second time my system boots into console mode.

Here it is the Xorg.log of failed kernel:

How to recompile my kernel and run Xorg if I have old config saved automatically in /usr/src/linux-debian-sources-4.14.2

# ls -la /usr/src/linux
....
-rw-r--r--   1 root root        59 ноя 24 10:37 .cocciconfig
-rw-r--r--   1 root root    197345 янв  5 15:37 .config
-rw-r--r--   1 root root    151394 янв  4 16:44 .config--2018-01-04--16-44-29.bak
-rw-r--r--   1 root root    197345 янв  5 13:56 .config--2018-01-05--13-56-08.bak  - this is workable

I run `genkernel --menuconfig all` and then load saved workable config. without any edition exited, genkernel continued to compile. now my funtoo debian-sources-4.14 boot ok.

so there is a difference between using emerge debian-sources with USE=binary -> that will build a kernel for you using debian scripts and almost everything will work.

compared to using genkernel where you need to supply the right config. Best way is to save current kernel config in a file and load that in genkernel. Menuconfig, ncfongi all have a way of loading a config file.

so what went wrong is probably that the genkernel config was not complete and didn't include graphic drivers.
