full report here: boot.txt

I am on Gentoo, this is the content of my x.org: Plain Text code- 31 lines - codepad

Kernel config: .config

Lspci:  lspci.txt

 

I solved a previous compile error (Plain Text code- 21 lines - codepad) with this patch: kernel module Catalyst does not compile with kernel 3.14 in linux Fedora 20


Any idea what to look for ?

 

Thanks,

S. Fox
