    Xorg 1.7.6 and ATI 10.4 Drivers

    Hi all,
    I have just upgraded my X Server in Gentoo, and had to upgrade my ATI drivers to the unstable 10.4, since you can't use 9.11 with Xorg 1.7.6.
    After upgrading, I am unable to get X Server running.

    Any idea about what's going on?

    Try deleting the BusID line from xorg.conf or use the correct values.
    I do not respond to private messages asking for Linux help, Please keep it on the forums only.

    I'd rather be lost at the lake than found at home.

    Sorry about the late response. I've been busy lately.
    I'm pretty sure I already did that, but to no avail.
    Either way, I have a new nVidia card in the mail as we speak, so I'll just redo most of my xorg packages.

    We'll see how that goes...
