Give input settings similar to this a try. This works in my /etc/make.conf.

INPUT_DEVICES="keyboard mouse synaptics evdev"

 If you're not on a laptop, you may not need synaptics, but I'd throw the
others in there.

Hi,
Thanks. On my system i do have Espeak installed. What profile and USE flags
do you have set?
Right now my problem is when gnome starts i don't have any keyboard control,
the keyboard works at a text console, but at the gnome login screen I type
and get no output.
Thanks.
Dave.
