[SOLVED] Dell Dimension 2100 XOrg "No Screens Found"


I have been using Linux for about a year or so now and I've been hopping around distros. I settled on Slackware and was happy. Lately, I've decided to become adventurous and install Gentoo on my old Dell Dimension 2100. The installation went fairly smoothly considering everything was being compiled from scratch. I got everything up and running including my internet connection.

Then I began to emerge the practical stuff. I've been emerging KDE over the past few days and it just recently finished. Unfortunately, I've had some trouble.

Located below is my '/var/log/Xorg.0.log'.

Code:
_XSERVTransSocketOpenCOTSServer: Unable to open socket for inet6
_XSERVTransOpen: transport open failed for inet6/n00box:0
_XSERVTransMakeAllCOTSServerListeners: failed to open listener for inet6

X Window System Version 6.8.0

Thanks in Advance,
sigloiv

EDIT: I figured it out, the HorizSync and VertSync were way too high. I just checked Dell's website for the correct numbers and stuck them into the config.
