i tried all the kernels in this series.
the .config file is exactly the same as in the 4.13.15 kernel (which in it everything working including gnome of course).
in the 4.14.X kernels, the text in the boot process is big (like in the old days of DOS) in contrast to kernel 4.13.15 which in it the text is smaller and nicer.

also in the latest kernel (4.14.4 which i compiled today) i get this message at the end of the boot process:
Code:
X (334) used greatest stack depth: 12560 bytes left


then everything is just stopped.
X (gnome) not strating and i stuck there.
so every time i revert back to kernel 4.13.15 which works great.


if you need more information ( i don't know where to look) please tell me.

Probably one of the configurations changed and no longer is being properly set to get into graphics mode (KMS). Go through menuconfig and ensure all the correct options are set.

The warning you got is "normal" with stack depth debug turned on, usually you can safely ignore this. However there may be more useful debug messages in /var/log/Xorg.0.log .

Else you may need to post your .config somewhere and your lspci information to indicate what hardware you have and how you were intending to configure it (whether you were using a closed source driver or ???).

EDIT in the buttom.

i eselect again 4.14.4 and get into menuconfig.
i think everything is set well.
i look at those articles:
https://wiki.gentoo.org/wiki/Radeon#Kernel
https://wiki.gentoo.org/wiki/Xorg/Guide#Installation

and on the kernel settings and everything (i think) is set in my .config as it should.

i have radeon HD 2400 pro.

here is my .config:

it is now sets to =n
it is the only kms search in my kernel that sets to =n
the problem is i can't find the actual (in make menuconfig) place to set it to =y

Torvalds has declared this release “painful”

Linus wrote:
"Don't get me wrong - things don't look bad, but I hate it when I find issues during the merge window that I feel should have been noticed before the code made it to me, and it happened a few times this release,"

"So 4.14 is getting some very core new functionality"


Have yet to compile a stable 4.14.X kernel on an x86.

Could you please tell us if /dev/dri/card0 exists? And if such, what permissions does it have?
Also, Xorg is reporting that somehow KMS is not available..
But taking a look at your config file I can't find the issue at first glance.

Have you tried copying the old config file and making oldconfig then compiling the kernel again? Perhaps you missed something if you manually reconfigured it

yes, /dev/dri/card0 exist on my system.
Code:
crw-rw----+ 1 root video 226, 0 Dec  6 03:08 /dev/dri/card0

(of course now i'm on kernel 4.13.15 and not the 4.14.x)

yes, i have tried to copy the old .config from an old kernel.
every upgrade of the kernel i copy the .config from the old kernel to the new one.
then i do make olddefconfig.
when i first compile 4.14.0 and it didn't work i thought something in my .config is wrong so i copy the .config from an older kernel in my system and it also didn't solve the issue.
