startx gives a blank screen - 3dfx voodoo3
When I run X -configure i get an error. I have a 3dfx voodoo3. So I don't think it should matter whether or not I have this module. But, I tried compiling it into the kernel, tried compiling it as a module, tried compiling the other intel modules. nothing worked.
But, whenever I run X -config /root/xorg.conf.new the screen just goes blank. X seems to have guessed my hardware exactly when I look in xorg.conf.new: voodoo3, gateway vx900 monitor (and refresh rates).
I read another post that said try: TDFX_RISKY="yes" emerge xorg-x11. but, that didn't help either.
here is the relevent section in Xorg.0.log:
(II) LoadModule: "i810"
(II) Reloading /usr/X11R6/lib/modules/driversi810_drv.o
(II) UnloadModule: "i810"
(EE) Failed to load module: "810" (once only module, -1073747660)
