Changing Screen Resolution Crashes X
I recently installed Gentoo Linux and it was working just peachy, until i tried to alter the screen resolution (KDE 3.1.5).... first I did it as root, I killed X and then logged in as my regular user and did the same, after giving root permissions to my regular user i changed the res and killed x, when I went to restart X i got an error (i'm at school now so i can;t give you the error message).... so after a few hours of messing with it I umerged X and remerged it. now the funny part.... when I reemerged X, iy worked, but i could only see the mouse pointer... the rest is dark. so i tried to configure X for my video card.... again, error messages like crazy....
please someone help,
i do not want to have to start over from scratch
