I just installed gentoo for on a new motherboard. The motherboard has an onboard intel graphics driver.

lspci -nn
Code:

00:02.0 VGA compatible controller [0300]: Intel Corporation Xeon E3-1200 v2/3rd Gen Core processor Graphics Controller [8086:0152] (rev 09)


I followed the insturctions on http://en.gentoo-wiki.com/wiki/Intel_GMA, I am using a genkernel so there is not much to do except
Code:

VIDEO_CARDS="intel"


when I run X as root
Code:

X -logverbose 6

It won't start and won't give me any useful information
Code:

Try adding this to your /etc/X11/xorg.conf

Code:
Section "Device"
   Identifier   "My Graphics Card"
   Driver       "intel"
   ...
EndSection


per http://wiki.gentoo.org/wiki/Xorg.conf#Device

I don't know much about genkernel, but maybe you can re-do what you've done using the more up-to-date intel guide:

Make sure you enabled your graphics drivers in Kernel configuratio.

add
VIDEO_CARDS="intel" in /etc/portage/make.conf

emerge x11-drivers/xf86-video-intel.

The problem was that I thought adding kernel option i915.modeset=1 was equivalent to CONFIG_DRM_I915_KMS=y. They are not. You need to set CONFIG_DRM_I915_KMS=y or it will not work.
