  1. Please post the output of
    Code:
    emerge --info

  2. Code:
    VIDEO_CARDS="intel"

    is probably not correct. See: https://wiki.gentoo.org/wiki/Intel

Changed from intel to intel i915 now. And here is emerge —info: https://dpaste.com/77NJP68HW before I began to install xfce but then i realized in the middle of it I needed Xorg so i ctrl c out of it and I think that is what is causing these problems

Code:
configure: error: C compiler cannot create executables
See `config.log' for more details

It tells you to look at config.log. Did you?
By any chance, did you switch from a no-multilib profile to multilib?

Edit: I see now, you have -02 instead of -O2 in your CFLAGS.

My current profile is 17.1/desktop and here is the new make.conf https://dpaste.com/9BCGKN9D8 everything look good now? This is the config.log : https://dpaste.com/G6WA796ZJ

qubloo,

configure.log:
configure:3534: x86_64-pc-linux-gnu-gcc -march=native -02 -pipe  -Wl,-O1 -Wl,--as-needed conftest.c  >&5
x86_64-pc-linux-gnu-gcc: error: unrecognized command line option '-02'


Is the error. You have numeral 0 in place of letter O.
That's not what you have in
Code:
COMMON_FLAGS="-march=native -O2 -pipe"
so it looks like you have fixed it.

On to your next Gentoo learning opportunity.

So I successfully emerged xorg now, but when I do startx I get a black screen and a second later im back to the terminal with this screen: https://imgur.com/a/6li9aiA then i checked my logs and the very end it said something about a dbus error. https://dpaste.com/B6C94X5KC

It looks like X server starts successfully, looks around, finds no job to do and shuts down. You must run an application on X server for it to stay up and work. Usually it is a Desktop Environment (DE), or at least Window Manager (WM), although in special cases it can be something else. I have a dedicated Kodi box for instance, I run Kodi on Xorg in this box, there is no DE nor WM. To conclude, you have to run something on it. There is plenty of reading about it in Gentoo Wiki.

qubloo,

The traditional test is
Code:
emerge -1av twm xclock xterm

That's what startx tries to run by default but you have to install it.

Hint: twm only uses the primary mouse button.

Yes. You should use a pastebin, not imgur. Screenshots cannot be quoted or properly indexed by search engines. Pastebins can. Additionally, that imgur link currently fails to load for me, and possibly for other users, so some of us cannot work on your problem.

qubloo,

Like this, to paste a file.
Code:
$ wgetpaste /usr/src/linux/.config
Pasting > 25 kB often tend to fail with dpaste. Use --verbose or --debug to see the
error output from wget if it fails. Alternatively use another pastebin service.
Your paste can be seen here: https://dpaste.com/4QKECQN32

or
Code:
$ wgetpaste -c 'emerge --info'
Your paste can be seen here: https://dpaste.com/9RLYDHSNL
for command output.

You will need to install wgetpaste before you can use it.
Code:
wgetpaste -h
is worth reading.

https://imgur.com/a/RChWPpD shows that rust-bin has been successfully unpacked and the install phase has just started.
There is nothing for you to do.

Did you also enable elogind to run as a service, start it (either manually or by rebooting), and then log out and back in so that PAM could notify it of your existence? The error handling for that failure mode leaves a bit to be desired.
