Unhappy FGLRX errors with Gentoo AMD64


I have just installed Gentoo amd64. It works fine (and very fast), but I cannot get my 3D-accelerator working on my graphics card. 2D-environment works fine. I was looking over the internet about two weeks, but I can't find a answer.

Here is a few command line prints:

..and I can't see gears.

Graphics card is Ati Radeon X1900GT.

I hope, you can help me!

Sorry about big post.
