Hi all,

I wanted to try out Gentoo and installed it a while ago alongside Ubuntu, which I still use. Everything was working with kernel 3.6.11 apart from my wireless card. Now I wanted to tackle the problem with it and upgraded all packages (>100). I left it overnight as it took many hours. Next morning everything has finished and I was on kernel 3.8.13, but the X Server didn't start anymore. I followed the X Server Configuration HowTo many times now and read the forum here, but I'm stuck. Even when I boot the old kernel I get an error message



Code:
lspci
...
00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation Mobile GM965/GL960 Integrated Graphics Controller (primary) (rev 0c)
00:02.1 Display controller: Intel Corporation Mobile GM965/GL960 Integrated Graphics Controller (secondary) (rev 0c)
...


Code:
cat /etc/portage/make.conf
...
VIDEO_CARDS="intel"
INPUT_DEVICES="evdev synaptics"


I have no xorg.conf and that worked before.
Code:
ls /usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d/
10-evdev.conf  50-synaptics.conf


First I had problems with KMS, but that is solved now. No clue what I did differently at the 100th "make menuconfig" followed by "genkernel all"

Here's my Xorg.0.log and /usr/src/linux/.config

http://bpaste.net/show/117316/

Code:
ls /usr/lib64/xorg/modules/drivers/
intel_drv.so


Code:
locate libudev.so.0
/lib32/libudev.so.0
/lib32/libudev.so.0.11.5
/lib64/libudev.so.0
/lib64/libudev.so.0.11.5


What other information do you need from me to be able to help me?

Thanks for reading

You might want to try to emerge xf86-video-intel again, or use the revdep-rebuild to try to fix the udev reference...

Or

Code:
emerge -a1 $(eix -sI --only-names  xf86-)


(you might need to emerge eix if you don't have it yet).

You're a genius! That solved the X Server problem, but the keyboard was not working at the login screen...

... and this solved it along 4 other found problems.

I hope, such things don't happen at every update...

Re-emerging all X11 drivers after an X update is standard and recommended practice.
Code:

emerge $(qlist -C -I x11-drivers/)
