    xorg errors


    i just reinstalled gentoo b/c X(free) didn't work after tinkering with a ati radeon card that i later returned...so, now ive got a new gentoo system and a matrox g400 pci dual'headed card and X(free) doesn't work, it has a bunch of unresolved symbols and then sig 11. Hoping that X(free) was just crap on my system for some reason i removed it and installed Xorg. same problem...bunch of unresolved symbols and a sig 11. Xorg -configure doesn't even work. Any ideas? (i really dont wanna put all the error up here b/i i would have to type it seeing as im on a different computer)

    If there is no way that you can get the error log to post without retyping it (ftp?), can you at least type a few pertinent lines? It's hard to debug an problem without the exact error.

    Try to unmerge xorg then remerge it...it looks to be maybe a borked compile.

    you are half way right....i alread unmerged and remerged it, same error. but...on the bug tracker i found a bug like mine (yay lots of googling) that states that hardened gcc and xfree or xorg are not compatible so i recompiled gcc with the -harden setting and am re-redoing xorg. i will post the results

    [edit] After gcc and xorg recompiled i was able to run both smoothly, although i need to recompile kahakai. The problem was the harden(ed) option in my make.conf. It does turn out that hardened gcc and any X are not compatible. FYI further googling found that the harden(ed) option is just about depracreated. Hope this helps in the future.
