I just updated from xfree86 to xorg-x11-6.8.2 on my 700MHz g3 ibook. I used etc-update to update my /etc/X11/XF86Config file. (changed the kbd driver, font locations).

now when I run 'startx', I get a blank screen. ssh in over the network, all my X apps are actually running! just the screen is blank.

any advice?

also, I notice it doesn't load the radeon kernel module anymore when X starts like XFree86 used to; does this mean there is no dri in xorg?

I knew I shouldn't have updated to Xorg yet :x

Are you sure Xorg is using /etc/X11/XF86Config as the configuration file?

Xorg on my iBook uses /etc/X11/xorg.conf.

You might want to check out the configuring Xorg section here: http://www.gentoo.org/doc/en/xorg-config.xml

I am wondering if you need to reconfigure Xorg to work.

(Just a guess, I haven't been using gentoo on ppc long...)

got it to work. I had the "UseFBDev" option commented out in the device section.
