Hey guys, got gentoo up and running on my lenovo laptop. It was pretty painless after my desktop install. Everything is working great, but i can't get synaptics working.

I'm not sure where to go. I've been through the wiki for kernel config & use flags. I have evdev & synaptics set for input. evdev & xf86-input-synaptics are installed. I don't see any errors, but when i try to run syndaemon it says that no syantpics device was found.

i am using sysmted-233, i have a hunch this could be another systemd issue. possibly a kernel boot param i'm missing.

any info or help would be appreciated on this one.

Do you mean tochpad is not working?
Did you enable kernel driver for your touchpad?

The lenovo thinkpads rely on Elantech device drivers, and not Synaptics.
