After I start X, using startx or /etc/init.d/xdm start, all tty's start behaving weirdly, I really don't know why this is or how to really decribe it, but te screen kind of rolls like when you have a syncing problem with the refresh rate and your monitor, but X works normally.

this is my kernel config:

this is my emerge --info

sometimes when I close the session this skewing also happens on the display manager (sddm) but just for a while, then it goes back to normal.

Thanks in advance.

Probably related to your graphics driver.

What hardware do you have? (graphics chip, monitor, how is it being connected-though probably VGA but maybe you have a laptop?!), and which driver are you using?

I'm using a laptop, It's a Dell Inspiron 14 3000 series, it comes with ubuntu.

lspci gives:

Code:

and Xorg.0.log is https://bpaste.net/show/335314c946ea, I believe this is where it says which driver I'm using.
