xf86-video-intel blocks xorg-drivers on fresh installation



Hi everyone,

I'm running into a couple of issues in my fresh installation of Funtoo. The main one is getting Xorg to work. I'm getting an error saying that Xorg can't find any displays, and I believe it's because I don't have the Intel drivers installed. However, when I try to install them, I get the following error message:


These are the packages that would be merged, in order:

Calculating dependencies  .... done!
[ebuild  N     ] x11-drivers/xf86-video-intel-2.99.917_p20210215::core-gl-kit  USE="dri udev uxa -debug -sna -tools -xvmc" 1,222 KiB
[blocks B      ] x11-drivers/xf86-video-intel ("x11-drivers/xf86-video-intel" is blocking x11-base/xorg-drivers-1.20)

Total: 1 package (1 new), Size of downloads: 1,222 KiB
Conflict: 1 block (1 unsatisfied)

It's been a long time since I've had a Funtoo installation, so I'm not sure how to handle this. Should xorg-drivers contain the driver for my Intel graphics, or do I need xf86-video-intel (as in the Video guide)? How would I resolve this?

My make.conf is this:

CFLAGS="-mtune=native -O2 -pipe"
CXXFLAGS="-mtune=native -O2 -pipe"
VIDEO_CARDS="intel, intel i915, intel i965"
USE="mmx sse -v4l"
