|I'm running Gentoo with eMac G4 1,25 GHz, and I had some problems on getting X.org start. Today I finally made it, and just wanted to write what I did. I have read these forums quite a lot for find solution, and at least found that i'm not alone with x-configuring problems..
- first I emerged Xautoconfig and ran it. It wrote a /etc/X11/xorg.conf file, but this file needed a bit tweaking before it works. I did two things:
- near the start of the file there was a line that ends 0 "Screen0" 0 0. I removed the zeros, so the line now looks something like this:
- when I looked forward the file, I found VertFreshRate and Horiz(?)FreshRate (or something like it). Xautoboot had written 71-73 and 70-60. I changed lines so that no they have only one number: 71 and 70
- then I ran startx, and It worked
..Hope this helps someone with some kind of issues. Now, let's see if I can make Gnome run...
