Whenever I try to start X, I get that error. I looked at the XF86Config file, and I'm not sure what the problem is. Can anyone help?...

    Did you get it working? Are you using X to login (kdm, gdm, or xdm) or do you login via the login manager? Exactly what command do you use to startx?

    Mandrake I got working perfectly 3 times so far. And with Gentoo, I was using xdm. I should of stuck with kdm though, cuz that seemed to work good.(It's what Mandrake uses, or else I'm confused)
