Hi all,

Sorry for hijacking the thread a bit, I wasn't sure whether I should open another thread or not. I have the same symptoms with X server with an ATI Radeon HD 4850 card.

Here's my Xorg.0.log: https://bpaste.net/show/2e8f67a458f3

Firstly, I misconfigured my kernel 5-6 hours ago, and uname -a still says my kernel was built at 15:30 CEST when in fact I have built it again several times, last time at 20:15 CEST (it's 20:40 now btw). Why is this? I do the usual stuff when compiling and installing the new kernel and have no other images in /boot than the newest one.

Apart from this, I compiled DRM support into my kernel as a module, framebuffer support is switched off for all devices. Here's the DRM related stuff from my kernel's config: https://bpaste.net/show/431ce763bd39
And here's the KMS related: https://bpaste.net/show/e9bb0b3e817a
It's also strange that the output of lsmod is empty. I also tried to build DRM support into the kernel with the same results.

The output of lspci: https://bpaste.net/show/05d3df0234e2
The output of emerge --info: https://bpaste.net/show/bbd57ab95b74

Any idea is highly appreciated :)

This is the first thing to solve. Rebuilding your kernel is not sufficient. There are other steps.

The new kernel must be installed correctly - did you forget to mount /boot?
The boot loader may need to be updated to point to the new kernel so it can be loaded.
Lastly, you must reboot to run the new kernel.

uname -a shows the build time of the running kernel. If its not what you expect, its because you are not running the kernel you think you are.

Xorg.0.log:
[    23.732] (II) [KMS] drm report modesetting isn't supported.
shows that Kernel Modesetting is not in your running kernel.

Lets fix your kernel issue first, that start with a new self consistant data set.

When you post your kernel .config file, post the whole thing. wgetpaste is your friend.
