I install the X and gnome.
But I use the
Code:

lsmod

I could not find the module "nouveau".

But by
Code:

dmesg

I can find that the module have been inserted.

In the make.conf I have choose VIDEO_CARDS="nouveau"

Another problem

Everytime I move window, it seem the system render slowly. I can see tuft of white zone when I move window.


Any idea????

Sounds like the missing module is for xorg, not a kernel module. Can you verify that VIDEO_CARDS="nouveau" is set, and that x11-drivers/xf86-video-nouveau is installed?

If these things don't help, please post your complete /var/log/Xorg.0.log

lsmod shows you which modules are loaded. To see if the nouveau is available use
Code:
modprobe -l | grep nouveau

When it is available you can load it manually with
Code:
modprobe nouveau modeset=1

and check after this with lsmod if its loaded

Have you set the driver in your kernel configuration?

Maybe have a look at the wiki: http://en.gentoo-wiki.com/wiki/Nouveau

Thank you, I have solved the problem.
I could not find the nouveau module because of I compiled nouveau into the kernel.
Now I select nouveau as a [module] and recompile the kernel, so when I lsmod I can find nouveau.
