I'm setting up a Lenovo Thinkpad Edge E530. But I can't get past startx.

So far I have followed the "X server configuration HOWTO":
- disables all framebuffer entries in the kernel
- enables event interface
- framebuffer console support enabled
- enabled everything for Intel
- enabled nouveau

I enabled both Intel and nouveau as this laptop has an integrated intel video and a Geforce GT635M. The kernel setting for switching between both is set. (took me some time to figure that out).

/etc/portage/make.conf looks like this:

Code:

# These settings were set by the catalyst build script that automatically
# built this stage.
# Please consult /usr/share/portage/config/make.conf.example for a more
# detailed example.
CFLAGS="-march=native -O2 -pipe -fomit-frame-pointer"
CXXFLAGS="${CFLAGS}"
# WARNING: Changing your CHOST is not something that should be done lightly.
# Please consult http://www.gentoo.org/doc/en/change-chost.xml before changing.
CHOST="x86_64-pc-linux-gnu"
# These are the USE flags that were used in addition to what is provided by the
# profile used for building.
USE="X alsa audiofile bindist caps cdda cdparanoia cups dri dvb dvd dvdr exif ffmpeg fftw flac grub ipv6 jack jpeg kde ladspa lash mmx -mono mp3 mpeg nptl ogg openal opengl -oss pdf png posix postscript -pulseaudio qt4 raw scanner shorten sound sse sse2 sse3 subversion threads tiff truetype udev v4l -wayland xine"
MAKEOPTS="-j5"
INPUT_DEVICES="evdev synaptics virtualbox"
VIDEO_CARDS="nouveau virtualbox"


Is it normal that I don't have a /etc/make.conf? A bit late to ask but this is different from all other Gentoo installs I ever did (some years ago now).

Startx gives the following Xorg.0.log

Code:

I tried to follow the HOWTO to set up xorg.conf manually but the strange thig is that I don't have the /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/ directory. There is only Sessions, xinit directories and chooser.sh and startDM.sh. I only can find /usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d/ and that contains 10-evdev.conf and 50-synaptics.conf.

If it helps lspci:

I wouldn't mind if only the nvidia card worked

make.conf is in /etc/portage now.

I wonder if it is worth trying the nvidia driver for testing, if you have no wish to keep it.

I have an nvidia card and no xorg.conf.

emerge nvidia-drivers

I must admit the current version does not work for me so I use:

emerge -v =nvidia-drivers-310.19

I'm actually using a similar hardware as you (Optimus, e.g. intel + nvidia) on my Arch Linux laptop. The easiest solution for me to get it to work was to remove nouveau and intel drivers and go for the nvidia blob just as billium suggests.

The big problem with nouveau for me is to get hardware acceleration to work. Currently, gnome-shell is consuming 300% CPU (I think it is hw acceleration, filed a bug here: https://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=686218), but with nvidia blob this is not the case. Also, I had to struggle to get vga_switcheroo to work as it should...

One warning: if that's a MUX-less hardware, setting it up might be quite tricky.

But regardless, for a start add intel to VIDEO_CARDS, emerge xf86-video-intel and make sure the correct kernel bits for intel are selected too.
That way you should get at least a start.

That did the trick. I added intel to the VIDEO_CARDS in /etc/portage/make.conf, emerged xf86-video-intel and re-emerged xorg-server. If I now run startx I get twm. So I can continue. No idea what driver it is using richt now. But if I have some desktop I'm happy.

Thanks.
