Fatal Error: Framebuffer busid


I cant get my fluxbox to work with xstart, i have tried like everything and all i can get is:

Fatal Server Error:

Cannot run in framebuffer mode. Please specify busIDs for all framebuffer devices.

In configure my xorg.conf with xorgconfig. My screen is a ADI P900 and I have a GeForce4 MX400. I chose the rigth vsync and hsync and i chose nvidia generic for my graphics.

Last time i installed linux it worked with same options, back then i had a diffrent motherboard, but i dont see that the problem can be it.

Im running Gentoo if that helps?

Someone pleas help me! (and sorry my english)
