After a proper installation on a Dell Inspiron 6400 i cant start Xorg.
VIDEO_CARDS="nvidia vesa"
Kernel looks properly configured as i followed both guides, Xorg and Nvidia howto.

Errors are: VESA

well

which kernel-source and version string

which nvidia-binary blob version

which gpu? lspci / lshw related section regarding gpu


Just guessing on your lines:
WEll 4.x.x kernel does not work with older nvidia-drivers.
when you have a legacy gpu you should use legacy nvidia-drivers which ar ein portrage and kernel 3.18 or older. Definitly not 3.19 or newer.
