Hello,
I've installed latest gentoo (as of Jan 2014) on a rather old Dell with intel built-in chipset for everything. I've got the network card recognised okay, with e100 module, but I've had no joy with getting Xorg to work.

I have VIDEO_CARDS="intel" in /etc/portage/make.conf and emerged Xorg after setting that.

lspci includes:
Code:
00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation 82865G Integrated Graphics Controller (rev 02)


running Xorg -configure gives a log file including:

Code:
[ 30812.592] (II) xfree86: Adding drm device (/dev/dri/card0)
[ 30812.594] (--) PCI:*(0:0:2:0) 8086:2572:1028:019d rev 2, Mem @ 0xe8000000/134217728, 0xfeb80000/524288, I/O @ 0x0000ed98/8
[ 30812.594] List of video drivers:
[ 30812.594]    intel
[ 30812.594] (II) LoadModule: "intel"
[ 30812.595] (II) Loading /usr/lib/xorg/modules/drivers/intel_drv.so

but then ends with

Code:
[ 30812.617] Number of created screens does not match number of detected devices.


I tried following the Xorg howto to install things, but must be missing something. Not sure what, though.

Did you try without an /etc/X11/xorg.conf ?
If you need /etc/X11/xorg.conf, what is in it?

I tried first without an xorg.conf, then created one using Xorg -configure, and have tried playing around with that. I haven't stuck it in /etc/X11 yet, but run Xorg -config ./xorg.conf while I'm still trying to get it to work.

It gives you the same error with and without the xorg.conf?
Post the error log somewhere?

... but yes, the error (at the point of X giving up) is the same either way

I hope I have KMS set... Would it be in the default genkernel version? I'll take a look.

So, I didn't have CONFIG_DRM_I915_KMS set.

Now I do, and I have X :D

Thank you eccerr0r for all your help!

Cool, yes, hate it that the Intel driver requires in-kernel KMS for it to work nowadays. It also used to print a warning if it found hardware but no KMS, now it seems to assume people know... Bad assumption IMHO.

Anyway, for the community, please add [SOLVED] into the title so others who may chance upon this thread in search can find this solution easier!
