Unhappy XORG 6.8 install issues

Hi Everyone,

I was just wondering if someone could possibly help me out. I have just compiled and installed XORG 6.8 on my laptop (with an ATI radeon video card) and when i try to run the x server, it gives me the following error:

Fatal server error:
Cannot run in framebuffer mode. Please specify busIDs for all framebuffer devices.

Would anybody know what is causing this error and how to fix it?

Thanks in advance!
