Ok so, I want to apologize for not getting this figured out on my own but I've tried so many things at this point I feel as though I'm too close to the problem to see it clearly. The goal here is just to be able to startx. When executing I get the following:

Xorg.0.log : https://bpaste.net/show/55e50694c254

my kernel config is: https://bpaste.net/show/b174e40212d1

I'm sure this is something really simple. I've just been strugling with it for too long.

uname -a shows my kernel having been built on the 11th.. I'm not sure why because every time I've run make install inside /usr/src/linux it's overwritten the kernel in /boot with the same name.. please help, the last time I installed a new gentoo system make install wasn't even an option..

PS VGA controller : and/ati radeon 3200 HD rs780

so... probably important to make sure /boot is mounted before making any changes to the kernel... or writing to a configuration file (grub) that is contained in said partition..

Code:

mount /boot
cd /usr/src/linux
su
make && make modules_install
make install
grub2-mkconfig -o /boot/grub/grub.cfg
reboot


.... and now x starts.. keyboard isn't working but that's fixable.. probably need to emerge xf86-video-keyboard or something stupid.. at any rate if anyone spots anything wrong with my .config, feel free to point it out and sorry to waste anyones time, marking as solved..
