I am a new linux user running on the gentoo linux distro. After downloading and installing xorg via the "emerge xorg-x11" command and configuring it, I am stuck at getting it to run. This is what happens when I try to copy over the xorg.conf.new to /etc/X11/xorg.conf:
# cp /root/xorg.conf.new /etc/x11/xorg.conf.new
cp: cannot creat regular file '/etc/x11/xorg.conf' : No such file or directory
Am I supposed to create a directory first or something? I am just following a HOWTO manual on installing Xorg, and it doesnt list a step like that. Here is the link to the manual I am currently consulting for the installation and setup:
Just for the heck of it, I tried running startx and apart from system information and some other info, here are the errors that turned up:
(EE) Unable to locate/open config file
Fatal server error:
Cannot run in framebuffer mode. Please specify busIDs for all framebuffer devices
Also, when I run X -config /root/xorg.conf.new , I get one error telling me this:
(EE) R128(0): No DFP detected
I dont know what DFP is or if it important or not. Do I need to fix something in the config file? If so, what should iI fix?
If someone could provide some detailed steps on how to go about installing and setting up Xorg-X11 from where I currently am, that would be fantastic. If I'm not providing enough information, don't hesitate to ask for exactly what you need. Thanks alot of your time.
