Hello,

About radeon, I read and continue on your post

About missing /dev/input/by-id ...

Can you run udev at sysinit ?

Can you provide :
emerge --info
make.conf
rc-update show


Thanks

Since ls -l /dev/input/by-id does not list any device, X -configure wouldn't work.

If I recall correctly, you should run aticonfig --initial or something to that effect, not X -configure - I can't remember exactly what it is.

Void, I stopped to use Sabayon and chroot Gentoo. Now I reboot, enter Gentoo text-mode, run commands passed here and save the output.

Good, this will help to eliminate some of the confusion of what is coming from where :D

How do you build your kernel, i.e. do you use genkernel or make :?:

You mentioned having a problem with depmod when first getting fglrx working. Try rebuilding your kernel in 'text-mode' then check /lib/modules/$(uname -r) and make sure the dates and times for modules.dep etc. match the kernels.

USTruck, that conf snippet is invalid - evdev driver is only for /dev/input/event* nodes.
Also, ' X -configure' doesn't generate anything really useful.

About evdev : exact but by settings of INPUT_DEVICES="evdev synaptics" (look at begining of post) he needs udev worked
IF he not needs udev ; change to : INPUT_DEVICES="keyboard mouse synaptics"
and rebuild by emerge -uDN

About X -configure http://pastebin.com/vjbRkXga
I use this part of X to look what are detected and settings by default without any conf file
if all devices are correctly detected and settings are what I needs by default, these part are not required

Based on these, like keyboard layout, keyboard options, mouse axis, mouse button, video card specific settings I use /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/XX-device.conf
Under these files I specify what I needs

It's not depend of evdev, this is a new way to handle specific configuration of xorg but xorg continue to work with old xorg.conf

I base these on http://wiki.gentoo.org/wiki/Xorg.conf

Hey guys, sorry for the very late reply, but my classes started and I need to work too, so it's very hard to find time to learn gentoo.

Now I'm using fglrx, because at least with it I was able to enter graphic mode, even without keyboard or mouse working. I don't know if I run udev at sysinit, but I think yes because the output of rc-update show list "udev-mount" at sysinit.

Bill, I've used make. The problem with depmod was using Sabayon and the chrooted environment to compile and install the drivers, I think.

So, I must:
Code:
cd /usr/src/linux
make menuconfig
make
make modules_install
cat /lib/modules/$(uname -r)
depmod -a
cp arch/x86_64/boot/bzImage /boot/vmlinuz-3.6.11-gentoo
make clean

Is this the correct order? Or I must run depmod -a before check dates for modules?[/code]
