Unable to start X -> Xorg-6.7.0-r3 OR Xfree86-4.3.0
Hi. I have been having problems getting 3D support on my Gentoo box. I am running a Powercolor Radeon 9600XT Bravo, a Pentium 4 Prescott 2.8A, 1GB DDR333, and a ECS 848-PA *ICH5/i856G*.
I installed Gentoo 2004.3 up to the point of reboot. I emerge xfree 4.3.0 and then ati-drivers. I FOLLOWED EVERY GUIDE I COULD, and some guides say to do it one way *using kernel 2.4* and some say to use 2.6 and use ATI's drivers. No matter what, the ONLY WAY I CAN EVER GET X to work and get back into KDE is to copy over XF86Config-4 from a knoppix Liveboot! I JUST WANT TO PLAY DOOM3/UT2004! Can anyone help PLEASE!!!!
P.S. -> Upon copying The file from knoppix, 3D gets turned off.
even with a DEFAULT *didnt touch anything* just ran the config tools */opt/ati/bin/fglrxconfig* and nano -w /etc/rc.conf i get a cannot enter frame buffer mode, and something about BusID 1:0:1
i dont understand what all this crap means, is there light at the end of the tunnel? Im really sick of jumping thru a billion hoops just to use Gentoo and KDE.
