Hi,

You must emerge xorg-x11:

Code:

emerge xorg-x11


then you must configure X Server, i recommend you to use Xautoconf:

Code:

emerge Xautoconf
Xautoconf


and then you must emerge gdm and gnome:

Code:

emerge gdm
emerge gnome


and you must let gdm start on boot:

Code:

nano -w /etc/rc.conf


now find the line with "DISPLAYMANAGER" and set this:

Code:

DISPLAYMANAGER="gdm"


and then you must start xdm and make it to boot when the computer starts:

Code:

/etc/init.d/xdm start
rc-update add xdm default


I hope this helps.
