I followed the guide to install Xorg and XFCE but when I type in "startx" it fails to load properly.

Here is the /var/log/Xorg.0.log file:

I'm using an integrated intel graphics card and I configured it according to the link provided by the Xorg guide.

I updated the link as I got confused between the O's and 0's.

Maybe you missed something in the kernel configuration.

I'm pretty sure I did follow the steps. I took another look at it to make sure and the Kernel Configuration is correct.

akim22,

You are not using your correct kernel then. Did you forget to mount /boot for the kernel install?
Look at
Code:
uname -a
Linux NeddySeagoon_Static 4.12.0-gentoo #2 SMP PREEMPT Mon Jul 10 11:02:16 BST 2017 x86_64 AMD Phenom(tm) II X6 1090T Processor AuthenticAMD GNU/Linux

The date and time is the build time ef the running kernel. If you have made another kernel since that time, you are not using it now.

I did uname-a and I found that the kernel I have currently isn't the latest one.
I thought I only had to mount /boot if I chrooted from a liveCD.

I'm going to do that now and see if it fixes it. Will I have to reinstall Xorg and XFCE?

It says in the guide(https://wiki.gentoo.org/wiki/Kernel/Rebuild) that I had to copy the newly compiled kernel into the boot. Where do I find the newly compiled kernel?

I tried reinstalling with the mount but it didn't work. The kernel did not update.

I went onto the IRC and I found out that grub is picking my old genkernel kernel instead of the recent manual one I made. So I'm trying to reinstall it based on this tutorial.

After going through advanced boot and booting through the newer kernel. Startx works so the genkernel is the thing causing the issue. Removing it should solve the problem.

Removed the genkernel kernel and it works.
