    Hello!

    I just installed x11 on my gentoo system with an ATI Radeon 9800 Pro P4 2.6GHz machine. However, after configuring the x11 config file with 'xorgconfig' and trying 'startx' and get this error:

    Code:
    (EE) Failed to load module "vga" (module does not exist, 0)
    (EE) No drivers available.
    
    Fatal server error:
    no screens found
    XIO: fatal IO error 104 (Connection reset by peer) on X server ":0.0"
    after 0 requests (0 known processed) with 0 events remaining.
    Any suggestions?

    Thank you,

    Dustin

    It is a temporary solution: In /etc/X11 there is xorg.conf and xorg.conf.vesa. I renamed xorg.conf to xorg.conf1 and xorg.conf.vesa to xorg.conf. The problem is that I cannot get proper resolution but I guess that's a driver problem. I got the same error using xorgconfig

    Hi, thanks for your assistance, but I do not have an /etc/X11/xorg.conf.vesa.

    Again any help or assistance would be greatly appreciated.
