emerge Xorg-server

In order to install xorg server,

#emerge -pv xorg-server
and check if there is something you need to emerge or put USE flags.

#emerge -av xorg-server
and try,

#startx
You might fail to launch it.

check this out,
#X -configure   ; create configuration file on your root folder.
#ls ~/
You will see,

 xorg.conf.new


My system VGA drive is nvidia. so now I would like to put following in /etc/make.conf
VIDEO_CARDS="nvidia nv"    ;Actually Gentoo's official driver is nouveau but it was not working on my machine for some reason.

And you need to edit on the config file a bit.

Section "Device"
        #Identifier  "Card0"
        Identifier  "Nvidia Card"
        Driver      "nvidia"
        #BusID       "PCI:0:13:0"
EndSection

and Check if it works,
#X -restro -config ~/xorg.conf.new

If you see the screen, then you will be able to proceed to KDE or something.
