    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.

    Try deleting the BusID line from xorg.conf or use the correct values.

    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...
