It xorg already running (i.e., did you do startx or something like that)?

I don't have much experience with the xorg configurators, I've always edited my xorg.conf file by hand. So my knowledge about these configurators is very limited.

If you do "startx" now, does it launch a graphical session?

First move your xorg.conf file elsewhere (if it exists at all).

Code:
$ mv /etc/X11/xorg.conf ~/xorg.conf.back
Then follow this guide:

http://www.gentoo.org/doc/en/dri-howto.xml

To get the intel driver working. You need to pick the correct driver in the menuconfig step, and you also need to use the correct driver in xorg.conf instead of the "radeon" one that appears in the guide. I guess you need "intel" here, but I never used an intel GPU so I am not sure.

I just moved that xorg.conf file , and had performed kernel tweeking with intel as the option , everything was success .
But couldnt take that xorg.conf file again to get edited , so i copied ~/xorg.conf.backback to my X11 folder , is there any problem in that .. ?

No problem, you can use that as a base or write a new one. Just make sure you set "Intel" as the driver inside of it.

Do you, by any chance, have the "minimal" use flag on?

Those modules should be present.

You can see the USE flags for a given package on the output of emerge -pv, for example, for my xorg-server they are these:

Code:
$ emerge -va xorg-server
superuser access is required... adding --pretend to options.


These are the packages that would be merged, in order:

Calculating dependencies... done!
[ebuild   R   ] x11-base/xorg-server-1.5.3-r6  USE="hal ipv6 kdrive nptl xorg (-3dfx) -debug -dmx -minimal -sdl -tslib"
Mine is "off" (as should be yours). Just check it. If it's "on" (no minus sign in front of "minimal", then that can be your problem. USE flags are set either in /etc/make.conf or in /etc/portage/package.use

I dont have anything like that in that make.conf file .. Is it fine , i just added only essential parts as USE flags nothing more

vibinlakshman,

We need to see the following
Code:
emerge --info
and the contents of the files xorg.conf and /var/log/Xorg.0.log.

The log file can be quite large.
Code:
emerge wgetpaste
and do
Code:
wgetpaste /var/log/Xorg.0.log
to put the file on the web. Post the URL you get back. Like this:-
Code:
bluebottle NeddySeagoon # wgetpaste /etc/X11/xorg.conf
Your paste can be seen here: http://dpaste.com/45057/
bluebottle NeddySeagoon #
That URL shows a xorg.conf taken from my Acer Aspire One, which has the same graphics chip as you. Other than the Section "Screen" it should be close to what you need.
