I have recently finished the process of installing gentoo (at last ) .
When I login into the system (only shell) the keyboard works fine but if i start the x server, using xinit, an incorrect keymap seems to be loaded as i cant type the char that is in the key.
I have set the correct keymap in /etc/rc.conf
Another problem is with the resolution of the x server.
Im using fluxbox and i can only get 640*480 res, how can put it at higher resolutions?
I've looked for the xorg config file and found it under /etc/X11/xorg.conf.example ; and renamed it to xorg.conf but after this step X can't start at all...
How can i solve this problems?
I think the problem is related to x not starting if i have the file /etc/X11/xorg.conf (which holds the configs for the X right?) but i can't see a turn around for the problem.
Any help/tip would be greatly apreciated.
Thanks in advance and sorry if the post seems a little confusing, i will be glad to explain more details as best as i can.
