Hello everyone,
It is my first time to try gentoo, and I am really excited to learn a lot here.
I want to install Plasma on my desktop, by looking in the wiki and watching some tutorials I am able to install Gentoo. Unfortunately when I startx I get:


(==) log file:"/var/log/Xorg.0.log"
(==) Using config directory "/etc/X11/xorg.conf.d"
(==) Using system config directory "/usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d"
(EE)
Fatal server error:
(EE) no screens found
(EE)
Please consult the The X.Org Foundation support
at http://wiki.x.org
for help.
(EE) Please also check the log file at "/var/log/Xorg.0.log" for additional information.
(EE)
(EE) Server terminated with error (1). Closing log file.
xinit: giving up
xinit: unable to connect to X server: Connection refused
xinit: server error


For the directory /usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d" It contains 2 files evdev and quirks

the directory /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d it contains 1 file opengl

I have an AMD RX400 series gpu so I installed the amdgpu driver but it seems that there is something messed up even though I installed xorg drivers and server.

Where did I mess up?

It seems like there is a problem with the graphics driver, any suggestions on how to figure out what is going on?

Welcome to Gentoo! I recommend you take one bite of the elephant at a time.

You are correct that the problem is how you have configured your graphics card. It isn't even making close to KDE.

If you haven't already, consult the wiki. You need a bit more than just the driver.

Pay particular attention to built into the kernel vs as a module. AMD uses firmware that must be loaded before the module or built into the kernel.

Apologies if I take a while to respond. I'm currently working on the dematerialization circuit for my blue box.

I am glad to be here, gentoo is a very classy distro even though I know that it's gonna give me a lot of hard time, but this is the only way to learn .
Thank you Doctor for the hint.
