does your machine have a touchpad? quite sure it does. edit /etc/make.conf to include INPUT_DEVICES="evdev synaptics"
Code:
emerge -av xorg-server $(qlist -IC x11-drivers)

If x11-drivers/xf86-input-synaptics was not emerged:
Code:
emerge synaptics

Code:
eselect opengl set ati
aticonfig

Code:
X -retro


Try another place
Code:
tail -200 /var/log/Xorg.0.log | wgetpaste

My personal preference is xf86-video-ati, but it's your choice.

As I mentioned in a few threads, naive greps of xorg log are unhelpful.

But even without the needed data, I could make a guess: conf snippet installed with synaptics needs 'event*' path filter.

emerge the world for the last 30 something hours. It's all fixed now.

The system is still left with a small inconsistency in emerging mysql, but it's really nothing I care.

Thanks for all the help!
