Hi, I'm having some trouble running Gentoo on my Macbook Air 5,3.[/code]

Gentoo isn't recognizing my trackpad, no matter what I do. I know it works on Linux because I booted into a live usb ubuntu session and I could use the trackpad just fine.

My input devices are as follows:

Code:
INPUT_DEVICES="${INPUT_DEVICES} evdev synaptics mtrack tslib"


My Xorg.0.log can be found here, compared to the ubuntu log here.

My kernel config can also be found here.

I'd really appreciate any and all help, it's difficult to use a computer in-class when you don't have a mouse!! :)

If the built-in hardware is anywhere close to my MBP8,1, then you are missing
Code:
# CONFIG_USB_EHCI_ROOT_HUB_TT is not set
# CONFIG_USB_EHCI_TT_NEWSCHED is not set
# CONFIG_USB_EHCI_HCD_PLATFORM is not set
these, enable them in your kernel. (At least that was needed for me to get the mtrack driver to work).
