running X on gentoo
I've recently installed Gentoo to dual boot with Debian on my machine but as it doesn't seem to come with a GUI, I've had to try installing X. I followed the instructions on the Gentoo website but now when I try startx, I get several messages saying that my video RAM is set too low preceded by a message that it can't find /dev/agpgart. I did ls /dev and found that agpgart wasn't listed but when I do it on Debian, it is. I also found on a separate webpage that i needed the module agpgart or intel_agp but have been completely unable to find either.
Do I need these modules or am I on completely the wrong track?

Device Drivers ---> Graphics support ---> -*- /dev/agpgart (AGP Support) --->
EDIT: Of course, after changing that you need to recompile your kernel, reinstall it, and boot into your new kernel.
