Problem Starting X

I just got gentoo running and did an emerge on Gnome. I went to start X and got the following error message.

Failed To Load Module "nv" Module Does Not Exist

I also got the same error for the following. fbdev,vesa,vga,mouse,kbd

I compiled the kernel with most of the previous list into the kernel and not as a module.

Any help would be appreciated thank you, I am still kind of a linux newb.

Hmmmm, nv is the generic Nvidia driver, is that the video card you are using? Check your kernel configuration and make sure you have nv (and consider installing the actual nvidia driver) active.
