help! cannot run in framebuffer mode

I'm having major issues here.

After "emerge gnome" which took hours, I tried to start x and get an error like this:

Fatal server error:
cannot run in framebuffer mode
please specify busIDs for all framebuffer devices

I'm using a radeon 9800 pro, so I'm assuming that uses framebuffer support. How do I go about fixing this problem?
