Hi there.

I have successfully installed Gentoo x86_64. I noticed, that some things have changed with time. Last time I installed Gento 3 or 4 years ago.
My questions:
1. I configured ethernet DHCP connection with eth0. After installation Xorg, internet connection was lost. After changing interface name into enp6s0 my net is working again. But I do not know why I hat to change interface name.
X server works but I can't find neither xorg.conf nor xorg.conf.d directory.
2. Sound. I used to install alsa-driver. It looks to be not supported anymore. Following wiki.gentoo.org/wiki/ALSA I would like to activate my sound card using in-kernel driver, but I do not know which one I should use.
Quote:
localhost X11 # lspci |grep Audio
00:1b.0 Audio device: Intel Corporation 6 Series/C200 Series Chipset Family High Definition Audio Controller (rev 05)
01:00.1 Audio device: Advanced Micro Devices [AMD] nee ATI Redwood HDMI Audio [Radeon HD 5000 Series]

Thanks for answers.

As far as I know new udev versions change interface names using a different scheme. It seems one can read why here.

New X versions generally don't need a xorg.conf file or a xorg.conf.d directory by default. You can create them if X doesn't work well by itself. For example I need a configuration file in order to specify that I want an Italian keyboard layout.

I don't have the alsa-driver package installed. I use in-kernel drivers. Perhaps you need to enable Intel HD audio (SND_HDA_INTEL). I don't know how to enable audio for your AMD/ATI device.

Well explained. Thanks.
BTW. I found that SND_HDA_INTEL is correct driver for both devices.
