keyboard don't work in Acer Aspire one D250


Hello,
i'm using netbook Acer Aspire One D250-0Bb pre-installed Windows XP. Now i have Gentoo. I have trouble with Xfce (lastest stable version) , where my keyboard don't react. I can move just with touchpad. I think, it's in X-server driver, but i can't find any information about that.

Sorry, my english is bad.

edit: I'have installed Gentoo from Ubuntu using chroot with pre-compiled files.

Can you be more detailed about how you "installed from Ubuntu" and what "pre-compiled files" you used? Perhaps the kernel/modules you installed is Acer laptop drivers.

Also, do you have access to the keyboard when X11 is shutdown? (You can find out by booting into a Gentoo minimal install CD or thumb-drive.)

And are you using an xorg.conf file? If so, you could try deleting the xorg.conf file and letting the system configure itself automatically.

I have pre-prepared some files at another computer. I have only copied them from USB stick to mounted /mnt/root and unpacked (no CD-ROM device).

Yes, after shutting down X11 i've got keyboard under control. The problem just is with Xserver.

I have the newest Xorg, that don't need conf file.
