Xorg, Xorg -configure fail
I just recently installed Gentoo 2004.1 (started literally hours before I caught wind of 2004.2...blast!), and it works splendidly, with one big exception: doesn't load! When I first try to run "Xorg -configure," it fails with a huge list of unresolved variables (I could reproduce the entire list if anyone's interested). If I go ahead and try to run "Xorg," the messages are fairly normal until it hits:

(WW) Radeon: No matching device section for instance (BusID PCI: 1 : 0 : 1) found
Fatal server error:
Cannot run in framebuffer mode. Please specify busIDs for all framebuffer devices.

The system runs off of a 1.33 AMD Athlon-XP with a Radeon 9600 Pro. I currently have the old and new radeon drivers installed into my kernel (2.6.7), although I tried it just once with every available didn't work. Nothing that I've installed up to this point has misbehaved in any way (including's own installation), which is part of what makes this so confusing.

Try xorgconfig...

Wow, that was pretty pathetic.

Yeah, that did the trick: thanks for the help.

Not really, how do you think we all learn?

I just made the same mistake before you :)
