I've been using genkernel --menuconfig all.
Here's my last configuration shown in uname -a:

You still have #CONFIG_INOTIFY_USER is not set in your kernel config. If CONFIG_INOTIFY_USER=y causes your network to fail, ignore it until X and udev are fixed.

Quoting some googles:
Quote:
make sure your kernel supports UDEV

"Since release 198, udev requires support for the following features in
the running kernel:

- inotify(2) (CONFIG_INOTIFY_USER)
- signalfd(2) (CONFIG_SIGNALFD)
- accept4(2)
- open_by_handle_at(2) (CONFIG_FHANDLE)
- timerfd_create(2) (CONFIG_TIMERFD)
- epoll_create(2) (CONFIG_EPOLL)


Kernel

udev requires the following kernel options:
KERNEL

General setup --->
[*] Configure standard kernel features (expert users) --->
[ ] Enable deprecated sysfs features to support old userspace tools
[*] Enable signalfd() system call
Enable the block layer --->
[*] Block layer SG support v4
Networking support --->
Networking options --->
<*> Unix domain sockets
Device Drivers --->
Generic Driver Options --->
() path to uevent helper
[*] Maintain a devtmpfs filesystem to mount at /dev
< > ATA/ATAPI/MFM/RLL support (DEPRECATED) --->
File systems --->
[*] Inotify support for userspace
Pseudo filesystems --->
[*] /proc file system support
[*] sysfs file system support

suggest you compile a kernel with inotify support and the other options above enabled, boot it, login, startx. If still failing;
Code:
rc-status sysinit
, if udev crashed; verify you are running the new kernel by running the code blocks below and looking for the quote blocks
Code:
zgrep -i inotify /proc/config.gz
Quote:
CONFIG_INOTIFY_USER=y
Code:
zgrep -i signalfd /proc/config.gz
Quote:
CONFIG_SIGNALFD=y
Code:
zgrep -i  fhandle /proc/config.gz
Quote:
CONFIG_FHANDLE=y
Code:
zgrep -i  timerfd /proc/config.gz
Quote:
CONFIG_TIMERFD=y
Code:
zgrep -i  epoll /proc/config.gz
Quote:
CONFIG_EPOLL=y
Code:
zgrep -i  sysfs /proc/config.gz
Quote:
# CONFIG_SYSFS_DEPRECATED is not set
CONFIG_SYSFS_SYSCALL=y
CONFIG_RTC_INTF_SYSFS=y
CONFIG_DMI_SYSFS=m
CONFIG_SYSFS=y
Code:
zgrep -i  blk_dev_bsg /proc/config.gz
Quote:
CONFIG_BLK_DEV_BSG=y
CONFIG_BLK_DEV_BSGLIB=y
Code:
zgrep -i  unix /proc/config.gz
Quote:

CONFIG_UNIX=y
# CONFIG_UNIX_DIAG is not set
CONFIG_UNIX98_PTYS=y
Code:
zgrep -i  devtmpfs /proc/config.gz
Quote:
CONFIG_DEVTMPFS=y
CONFIG_DEVTMPFS_MOUNT=y
Code:
zgrep -i  proc_fs /proc/config.gz
Quote:

CONFIG_PROC_FS=y

Awesome. That worked.
I have no connection, but I have x.
Keyboard and touchpad both work.

I'm going to try and read into it the conflicts with wifi;
Any idea what that does to the connection?

Thanks a million.
Jay

just trouble shoot the connection.
first
Code:
lspci -k
and/or
Code:
lshw | grep -1 driver
if usb dongles involved
do the NIC's have drivers?
Code:
ifconfig -a
does the kernel see the nic's? What interface names are assigned?
Code:
ifconfig
are the interfaces up?
What style of networking are you attempting? gentoo scripts, dhcpcd, wicd, or networkmanager? or something else?
Code:
dmesg | grep -i iwlwifi
dmesg | grep -i wlan0
anything interesting? you have a dmesg on page 1 when wifi was working for comparison

I ended up getting the wifi working.
Before x was working, the device was showing up under wlan0.
After those changes to get x working, the interface showed up as wlo1.

Every thing's going good. I have everything except the sound working. I'm messing with that now.

Thanks again,
Jay

vague suspicions confirmed about name change when udev started working. appreciate the feedback
