Hi I can use startx to get a desktop environment but then none of my keyboard or mouse are loading based off what xorg.0.log is not saying. I got the problem down to udev, not having a init.d script or being in rc-update. I recently did a world reinstall. I also can't get any input from lxde in a 32bit chroot and also a world reinstall in it.
Does udev need a init.d script and ifso how do I get one? And how do I fix no input in lxde?

Seems like you don't have udev installed. If you set the "udev" USE flag xorg will pull it in. And then there is the choice between udev and eudev.

You should change USE flags so that your system actually need udev if you wish to use it. And not install it by hand.

Then you'll also have the sys-fs/udev-init-scripts package which houses init scripts for udev and eudev.

EDIT: Also, if you have xorg compiled without udev support it won't use it. Even if you install it (as you did).

EDIT2: You're not using the desktop profile, are you?

Eselect profile list
Current one is
* default/linux/amd64/13.0

And after reinstalling xorg with udev support and installing the init scripts it works :D.

But that just broke my wireless :evil:

Edit

Ok fixed wireless udev just changed the interface name :roll:

I suggest that you move to the desktop profile, it'll just be easier, as you seem to have a desktop system.

default/linux/amd64/13.0/desktop


It might be that udev gave your wifi card a different name. Run `ifconfig -a` to see if it's somewhere there.

EDIT: Didn't see your edit in time :) Still, consider the profile change.
