Exclamation KDE 3.1 STILL not running in X...

Hi, Im pretty new to Linux... but I know a little bit so far, anyways... I had a friend put GenToo on one of my computers that i have laying around the house... he said GenToo is the way to go because its completely optimized for the system once its setup. I had RedHat and hated it... it was a pig, to much crap software I never used. Well, on to the problem... he emerged KDE 3.1 and got everything compiled for me... but now he's to busy to help for awhile. And when I "startx" I get a teal green screen looks to be running only 2 colors... and KDE doesnt load... whats the deal... I also have a few errors when starting X... maybe somebody here can help me.

This is what i see after loading X and then CTRL-ALT-BACKSPACE

Symbol drmR128TextureBlit from module /usr/x1186/lib/modules/drivers/r128_drv.o is unresolved!

Symbol drmFreeBufs from module /usr/x1186/lib/modules/drivers/r128_drv.o is unresolved!

Symbol drmFreeBufs from module /usr/x1186/lib/modules/drivers/r128_drv.o is unresolved!

xterm: Fatal IO error 32 (Broken Pipe) or Kill Client on X server ":0.0"

xterm: Fatal IO error 32 (Broken Pipe) or Kill Client on X server ":0.0"


Also when i do a "emerge kde -p" it shows a list of files... are these files it still needs?
