i am experiencing some major problems getting X.org working on a gentoo install. i have described everything in detail on the Gentoo forums, but was hoping to get some help here as well.
the short version is that my mouse and keyboard won't work when i 'startx'. well acutally now my keyboard works but the original problem was with both.
a longer description of the problem, as well as what i have tried so far, is here:
if anyone has experience with X and Xorg, could you take a look and figure out what my problem is? i wouldn't be surprised if it was something easy as i've only ever used the autodetecting flavors of linux such as RedHat and Mandrake, so I've never configured X by hand before.
