Hi everyone,

I wrote this in /etc/potage/make.conf:
Code:
VIDEO_CARDS="radeon"

And then I updated world typing this:
Code:
emerge --update --deep --with-bdeps=y --newuse @world
emerge --depclean
revdep-rebuild

And my video card is this:
Code:

01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. [AMD/ATI] RV670 [Radeon HD 3690/3850]

After that update my DE (Xfce4) doesn't start, althought OpenRC warns me that it starts slim.

These are the Xorg logs (hosted in pastebin.com):
  1. Xorg.0
  2. Xorg.0.log
  3. Xorg1


------------------------
SOLUTION;
The mistake was that I didn't realize I had to emerge the firmwares. Thanks for your help.

based on your xorg log, sounds like you did not configure your kernel with modesetting enabled (look for the EE lines, those are the actual errors xorg encountered).

Check your setup with http://wiki.gentoo.org/wiki/Radeon

Hope this helps

you did an update of your system and therefore you may broke something. You may follow the gentoo wiki and fix your kernel / config files.

Nothing unusual. I suppose your xorg-server / ... was updated which causes a rebuild of those packages.

When you want ot minimize work update always kernel / xorg-server / gpu driver at the same time only. They heavily depend on each other and mostly cause breake or rebuild of these

Before upgrading / updating of course
