hi all , I do not like to update my gentoo frequently cause compile takes me a long time,but some days ago, I decided to upgrade my Xorg server to 1.13 and gentoo-source kernel 3.6.2 . it sucks me . the X was crash at login window, the screen was blank. sometimes you can see the mouse loading with the circle.I try to fix this as follows ,but it didn't work. (my video card is Nvidia Geforce 8400M) my Xorg.conf use nvidia-xconfig auto to generate.

1.update Nvidia driver to latest (304.43?) in the portage (ACCEPT_KEYWORDS="~amd64")
2.download latest Nvidia driver form Nvidia Official website and install it
3 dowgrade Nvidia driver in the portage
my Xorg.log file is here http://pastebin.com/FZy7TRsf
the ERROR is

Code:
NVIDIA(0): Error recovery failed.

does anybody can help? or any suggestions?

I find Udev-postmount didn't start at runlevel after Udev-194, since Udev-180 ,there is no udev-postmount init script in /etc/init.d ,so I downgrade to Udev-171-r8 all things goes well

Perhaps you should set "rc-update add udev-mount sysinit" to get it working. There are one or two threads about this issue here on the forums when you upgrade udev.
