hello everyone, i'm having a little trouble understanding whats going on, when i emerge xorg-server, i get the following.

*view'd by using /var/log/portage/elog/summary.log*
I also used genkernel all to config my kernel.

Code:
WARN: postinst
virtual/udev was built without keymap support. This may cause input device autoconfiguration to fail.

Warn: postinst
This driver requires KMS support in your kernel
 Device Drivers--->
   Graphics support--->
      Direct Rendering Manager (XFree86 4.1.0 and higher DRI support)--->
        <*>   Intel 830M, 845G, 852GM, 855GM, 865G (i915 driver) --->
                i915 driver
        [*]     Enable modesetting on intel by default

WARN: postinst
virtual/udev was built without keymap support. This may cause input device autoconfiguration to fail.


though when the guide tells me to <Y> Include the following before emerging xorg-server (i have an i915 video driver)

Code:
/dev/agpgart (AGP Support) --->
    <*>  Intel 440LX/BX/GX, I8xx and E7x05 chipset support

the following message appears "The feature depends on another which has been configured as a module. As a result, this feature will be built as a module."


Oh one last thing when i go back in to the kernel configuration and find the location of Direct Rendering Manager all it tells me is the following
Code:
--- Direct Rendering Manager (XFree86 4.1.0 and higher DRI support)
 [ ] Allow to specify an EDID data set instead of probing for it


I'm kind of at a stand point and searching the forums to figure this out. Thanks

Tman11,

Genkernel is dumb. It does not set up the kernel they way you need. With the all option, it makes almost every module known to Linus but because some options conflict, they are left off.
You have to choose these for yourself.

The module vs built-in is not really an issue. With the intel video driver built in, rather than a module, you get your framebuffer earlier in the boot process.

You need to rebuild your kernel. You can still use genkernel but you need to pass it the menuconfig option, so it allows you to make the changes you need before it does the build.
genkernel -h, or genkernel --help or even man genkernel will provide more details.

Probing for an EDID data set is fine unless you want to start Xorg with your display switched off. Its unlikely you want to do that.

You will want to rebuild udev too, since most people want Xorg to detect their input devices.

Tman11,

Code:
WARN: postinst
virtual/udev was built without keymap support. This may cause input device autoconfiguration to fail.


keymap is a USE flag. Make sure its on for udev at least.
Code:
emerge -1 udev -av
will offer to rebuild udev.

If keymap is in red, all is well, if its in green, say y, as the flag is set but the package has not been built to use it. If its in blue -keymap, the flag is off. Say n and fix the use flag.

If you have only just set the the /kde profile, you should do
Code:
emerge --sync
emerge -uDNav world
to update your system and have all of the USE changes that come with your new profile built into your system.

-- edit --

Homework :)
What does emerge -uDNav world do ?

Tman11,

--ask [ y | n ] (-a short option)
--verbose [ y | n ] (-v short option)

Thats a very important command. (emerge -uDNav ... ) You use it for keeping Gentoo up to date.

At the moment i've finished installing kde services and im on 114 of 333; emerge kde-base/kde-meta
