You need to add the following lines to your /etc/make.conf:

Code:

VIDEO_CARDS="nvidia vesa"
INPUT_DEVICES="keyboard mouse"


if you haven't and then run
Code:
emerge xorg-x11
again.

If this is the problem you were probably using outdated install documentation that relates to the old version of the X-server (now replaced in gentoo with the new and rather differently structured version).

Hope this helps

In that case a bit more info please:

emerge --info
and the contents of your xorg.conf at the very least.

Please do not post the same query in multiple topics, even if they are in different sections, instead report the topic and request that it be moved.

Moved from Desktop Environments to Duplicate Threads.
