You will need some firmware from the Linux firmware package:

root #emerge --ask sys-kernel/linux-firmware
  • iwlwifi-8265-27.ucode
  • i915/kbl_dmc_ver1_01.bin (be sure to follow the Intel manual)

And add them space-separated in the kernel firmware selection:

KERNEL Enable firmware
Device Drivers  --->
    Generic Driver Options  --->
        (iwlwifi-8265-27.ucode i915/kbl_dmc_ver1_01.bin) External firmware blobs to build into the kernel binary
        (/lib64/firmware) Firmware blobs root directory



To set the touchpad (and keyboard knob) in the kernel, do the following.

KERNEL Enable support for touchpad and knob
Device Drivers  --->
     I2C support  ---> 
         I2C Hardware Bus support  --->
              <*> Synopsys DesignWare Platform
     Multifunction device drivers  --->
              <*> Intel Low Power Subsystem support in PCI mode
     HID support  --->
         Special HID drivers  --->
             <*> Alps HID device support
         I2C HID support  --->
             <*> HID over I2C transport layer

After that, the Synaptics article can be followed.

SD card reader

     Multifunction device drivers  --->
         <*> Realtek PCI-E card reader

And add a user to the video group to access the /dev/video0.
