theabcasian,

Your current error is
Code:
(++) Using config file: "/etc/make.conf"
Parse error on line 4 of section (null) in file /etc/make.conf
	"CFLAGS="-O2" is not a valid keyword in this section.
This hints that you told Xorg to use /etc/make.conf as its config file when it started, not the default /etc/X11/xorg.conf, which looks mostly harmless.

Xorg looks in a lot of places for a config file, in different places for root and normal users too.

Try typing
Code:
startx
and the prompt, if it fails, wgetpaste var/log/Xorg.0.log again.

Hi, you didn't add hal as a use flag.

So, add this one inside your /etc/make.conf and run this :

Code:
# emerge -auDNv world
After that, retry to start your X server.

theabcasian,

Code:
(EE) intel(0): sil164 not detected got 5: from DVOI2C_E Slave 112.
I've never seen that error before. As it mentions I2C, I guess its whats stopping your screens from being detected.

Adding hal to USE= in /etc/make.conf may do nothing as hal is included in the /desktop profile.

How did you make your kernel ?
Please post your /usr/src/linux/.config file ... you know how to use wgetpaste by now.

theabcasian,

I'm surprised that wgetpaste failed. Its used every day to post kernel config files by people that come into #gentoo on irc.freenode.net.

http://public.me.com/ seems to be broken as it doesn't like my browser, so I can't read you post.

theabcasian,

Its the right file ... it shows your kernel configuration.
The warning is telling you not to edit it directly - you must use make menuconfig.

Your kernel looks good - you have the options that your Intel chip set needs set.

To overcome the [CODE]('ebuild','/','sys-apps/man-pages-posix-2003a','merge') pulled in by
sys-apps/man-pages-posix required by ('ebuild','/','sys-apps/man-pages-3.2
0','merge'){/CODE] error, remove the old man pages package and install the new one. Read the text in red just above the error you posted. The command is
Code:
emerge -C <old_package> && emerge -1 <new_package>
Do not do that to resolve all blocks ... sometimes its more complex.

After you have fixed the block, run the command that d2_racing gave you and allow it to rebuild any packages that it needs to.

theabcasian,

The intel driver should work with your card. Whats normally the hard bit, the kernel, is ok.

The VESA driver works with every graphics card made since 1998. It gives very basic functionality only.
You don't get any acceleration. The intel driver will provide 2D and 3D hardware acceleration.

Use the vesa driver meanwhile but don't give up on the intel one.

theabcasian,

The few 'terminals and a clock' are twm, which is installed when you install Xorg.
twm is a good test for Xorg working but you probably won't liek it for much else.

How did you install KDE ?

How do you want to start KDE ?

You can have a Graphical log in, or you can type startx in the login shell.
Both methods need some configuration and the configuration is different in each case.

As you have twm working, it should work for root and normal users. If not, you have a configuration issue to address before you go any further.
