    In any case, I am glad that it works now. If you have problems with the localization/language of your keyboard you might need to tune that file a bit. But the bigger problem is solved now hopefully
    yes I did that to with the policy and that.

    The error about drm is this one:

    drmOpenDevice: Open failed
    [drm] failed to load kernel module "i915"
    (EE) [drm] drmOpen failed.
    (EE) intel(0): [dri] DRIScreenInit failed. Disabling DRI.
    This can be for a number of reasons but almost always it has to do with a relevant driver not being in sync with the current xorg version. I never used the intel driver so maybe just recompiling it might fix it (if not then I am not the best one to help you with that).

    You can try:

    emerge -1 x11-drivers/xf86-video-intel
    And see if the error goes away after restarting X.

    While you are at it, you can also do a bit of cleaning in your xorg.conf. The modules don't need to be loaded explicitly now, and the input sections can be completely eliminated as well. But always keep a backup, just in case.

    The fonts sections shouldn't be needed either.

    Section "ServerLayout"
    Identifier "" Configured
    Screen 0 "A19-3A" 0 0
    Section "Module"
    # I leave xtrap just because you had it, but if you don't
    # need it, you can remove this whole section
    Load "xtrap"
    Section "Monitor"
    Identifier "19tommer"
    VendorName "Fujitsu-Siemens"
    ModelName "A19-3A"
    Section "Device"
    ###Available Driver Options Are:-

    Device "Card0"
    Monitor "19tommer"
    SubSection "Display"
    Viewport 0 0
    Depth 24
    Modes "1280x1024" "1024x768" "800x600"
    Section "DRI"
    Mode 0666
    End Section
    Maybe you can remove even the video stuff, most open source drivers don't need it either nowadays. But as said, I know nothing about intel so I won't remove. I think that the DRI section is not needed for intel cards either (maybe a leftover from an ati or something?), but I am not sure.

    This will alleviate the speech in your log files as well, which will make it easier for other people to diagnose things.
