Decided to install gnome on my modified HP laptop. Ran into some problems getting x server running, documented here:
http://forums.gentoo.org/viewtopic-t-948290-highlight-.html

Eventually fixed with help from NeddySeagoon. Went to work on getting gnome installed. Ran into some dependency problems. Eventually solved with a new kernel, some eselect choices as well as (mostly) installing packages in a specific order. Edited grub.conf and now it boots to gnome.

Now, my (touchpad) mouse doesn't work. Found this guide: http://en.gentoo-wiki.com/wiki/Synaptics_Touchpad
This didn't seem to fix the problem.

Then found this forum post: http://forums.gentoo.org/viewtopic-t-932242-highlight-gnome+mouse.html
I changed /etc/X11/xorg.conf and then remerged xorg-server.

Rebooted. Boots to gnome login, but Mouse still doesn't work, nor keyboard. SSHD is not working either. Found a worrying complaint during bootup. Located the error in /var/log/messages:
Code:

Feb  5 15:04:14  kernel: [   78.003371] dhcpcd (3184) used greatest stack depth: 3920 bytes left

Rebuilding kernel seems to have fixed.

cat /var/log/Xorg.0.log at http://codepad.org/AytLyMWP

Now in that log, it looks like there is an error related to evdev. Should I try to fix, or should I be pursuing a different line of inquiry?

Thanks in advance!!

Yes you need to fix it, normally you have INPUT_DEVICES in your make.conf set to evdev and portage will emerge xf86-input-evdev for you, and this will enable your keyboard/mouse provided your kernel also has INPUT event drivers enabled.
