Ok this is driving me crazy... it should be a simple command after emerging xorg and kde.

"Xorg -configure"

give the response "command not found"

I have spent hours trawling with google and the forums. I have read the HOWTO on Xorg. Nothing.... zip.

Please respond or i will be forced to destroy my gentoo cd's and buy a PC with Windows.

Ahhh...my fault I was logged in as a SU not root. So problem solved...now I just gotta get xorg working with my rage mobility 128. So far it has been like pushing s*%t uphill.

I have managed to get as far as a grey screen with horizontal lines. No mouse pointer and no input. How do I exit using control keys so i don't have to soft reboot everytime it fails?

I'm on a ibook 366 firewire ppc G3 with a Rage Mobility 128 agp card. I have replaced "ati" with "fbdev" and disabled the i2c driver in X11R6/lib/modules.

Any help would be most appreciated as i have been at this for 4 days!

thanks! :-)

not sure as I've never worked with ppc linux yet, but to get out of X you can usually hit ctrl-alt-backspace (not sure if it works on mac keyboard though) hope that helps

Yeah... don't use the autoconfigure utility...

I used it and it configured my video card (semi) correctly, but I still had to edit my xorg.conf to get X.org to start.

Come to think of it... I pretty much just had to write the whole thing from scratch! Hehe.
