Is this a new installation (i.e. did you have X working on this machine before

the error appeared)?
Yes.*
Still, the X works, but not through xdm. *I have to login in the console first, then startx.




Either way, have you defined keyboard in your make.conf:



INPUT_DEVICES="keyboard ....."
It is there, and also evdev.



and if you just updated your xorg before this error occurred, have you

remerged your keyboard driver?
I didnt.*


x11-drivers/xf86-input-keyboard



Run qlist -I -C x11-drivers/ to see which X drivers you need to remerge.



HTH.

What does 'cat /etc/env.d/90xsession' show? *If nothing, then create it and

add to it:



XSESSION="fluxbox"

None existed. Created it.

Tried kdm, kde, kde4, and still nothing.

Am I using the wrong value or its bug related yet?

or whatever is your DE/WM. *If this is a multi-user machine and people use

different WMs then you'll need to set this up in their .bashrc.

The syntax for your session should be one of the names listed under

/etc/X11/Sessions/*



e.g. KDE-4



So it should look like:



XSESSION="KDE-4"



Don't forget to restart /etc/init.d/xdm or reboot.

Default (EE) XKB: No components provided for device Virtual core keyboard

Well, I`ve got this:

/etc/conf.d/xdm
...
DISPLAYMANAGER="kdm"
...

/etc/rc.conf
...
# Gnome - will start gnome-session
# kde-<version> - will start startkde (look in /etc/X11/Sessions/)





# Xfce4 - will start a XFCE4 session
# Xsession - will start a terminal and a few other nice apps
XSESSION="kde-4"

Then I remembered about /etc/X11/Sessions and switched it for KDE-4, but still...





Also tried commenting the line XSESSION, and nothing again.

But, I`m thinking about this note in /etc/rc.conf:

# NOTE:¬* 1) this behaviour is overridden when a ~/.xinitrc exists, and startx

#¬*¬*¬*¬*¬*¬*¬*¬*¬*¬* is called.

This is the command called when I use startx, right? If so, how can
I make xdm use it as well? Or the problem is somewhere else here?

I checked ~/.xinitrc and it has:
startkde

And may be related to this, or something in my xorg.conf.

I just moved ~/.xinitrc so it couldnt be found when I try startx. Then, X failed to load.

Let's belt & brace this to cover all bases:



Check that in your /etc/rc.conf you have XSESSION="fluxbox" or whatever is the

session shown in /etc/X11/Sessions/.



Also, check that you have specified the correct Display Manager in

/etc/conf.d/xdm, e.g. DISPLAYMANAGER="kdm"



Then /etc/init.d/xdm restart to see what you get. ¬*If you have no success

after this then I'm afraid I've run out of ideas.
