Hi,

I think I'm in the right place - I've been searching around for the answer to my question and apart from the fact that I'm not entirely sure what my question is I can't seem to find an answer!!!

I'm very new to linux - but v. excited about it!!!!!

Basically - have installed gentoo and want to run xpce4 (was recommended by a friend) - emerged it successfully but my x config doesn't work.

I appear to just have xorg.conf and no installation of xfree86

I'm pretty confident that the problem is that I'm using the wrong video card driver and settings I have tried every combination I can think of - but I know the right one is out there.

I'm not sure what information you guys need - so if you ask i'll let you know.

Thank you all in advance :oops:
