I installed my Gentoo from the console, then step by step adding X support. Everything worked fine. But recently, I noticed that the console got stuck after displaying below log message.

Code:
fb: switching to inteldrmfb from simple


If the stop my X server.

Code:
sudo systemctl stop sddm


I will get a black screen and there's no way to recover other than force restart.

In my kernel config. "Frame buffer Devices ---> Simple framebuffer support" is the only enabled frame buffer option.

Carefully follow the instructions on https://wiki.gentoo.org/wiki/Intel solved my problem.

I think enabling the legacy options are the key.
