Default Can't build firmware into kernel

Yes, exactly. The first time you were missing
CONFIG_EXTRA_FIRMWARE_DIR, it should point to /lib/firmware if you've
emerged radeon-ucode.

Yes,that's right, when I checked my .config file I found that CONFIG_EXTRA_FIRMWARE_DIRis /firmware, then I corrected it and emerge xorg-server and twm.Command "X -configure" executed successfully , it did generate /root/xorg.conf.new.After that I used "X -config /root/xorg.conf.new" , then screen turned black andOS can't response to any input.Then I "cp /root/xorg.conf.new /etc/X11/xorg.conf" and "startx",but the result didn't change, was OS crashed?

See if you can access it using ssh from another PC. Then check
/var/log/Xorg.0.log for any error messages.

I have checked my Xorg.0.log, there is no error message. I have a question,I read xorg.conf , I didn't find any area about Window Manage, so how xorg-server knowswhich WM to invoke when I use "X -config /etc/X11/xorg.conf" ?BTW, among my class I am the only one who uses Linux, so it's impossible to use ssh.

Window managers are started by users. I think you are talking about
"display managers".

Xorg runs a script /etc/X11/startDM.sh. It will start up /etc/init.d/xdm
if that's the display manager defined (as it is in a default Gentoo
setup). You define which display manager you want to start in
/etc/conf.d/xdm, for example:

DISPLAYMANAGER="kdm"

This will start the KDE4 display manager.
