Youll want to check out the conf file and make sure it's using the i810 driver as the generic vesa driver is really slow.
heh, I'm using the same chip.

It's hard to tell how far it's getting, must be failing quite early.
Is there anything it wants to recompile from a emerge -uDNav world?
nope just totem which wont emerge properly
that sux i recompiled my kernel like 6 times with all different intel driver combinations and none work, tried reconfiguring my xorg.conf with xorgcfg -textmode and still no luck
Did manage to pull in these packages ?
Pastebin will let you upload files and it works with links.
Could you show us your /var/log/Xorg.0.log
Might want to keep an eye on this thread.
Yes, he has all of the drivers. I think it is a kernel conflict, but not sure. It could also be a path conflict, because of the upgrade to Xorg 7.
So far everything I have tried is coming up nill. Xorg won't load any video drivers. I have tried i810, vesa, and vga so far. When I search for the error on the gentoo forums, a few people have had the problem, but it isn't resolved.
I am still searching and looking for an answer for him, but any help is welcome.
