I am a new Gentoo user and have just finished getting my PowerBook 12" to dual boot. The next thing I did was install xorg with emerge. After running the configuration script I get an error when testing with startx.

"(EE) VGA(0): Cannot read V_BIOS (5)
Fatal server error:
caught signal 7. server aborting.

xorg.config

Section "Device"
Identifier "Card0"
Driver "vga"
VendorName "nVidia Corporation"
BoardName "GeForce FX 5200 (Mac)"
BusID "PCI:0:16:0"
EndSection

any ideas or advice?

thanks

Try "nv", and in kernel put oonly openfirmware. If it don't work try to use "fbdev".
