Hello,
New to gentoo here. I'm trying to get my xserver going but am having trouble.

I have tried running this command but it doesn't seem to help.
emerge -av `qlist -IC x11-drivers`

I am trying to use VGA-0 btw.

A bit more info;
The xorg logs these events as well. Perhaps they will be useful.

Do you have xf86-video-ati installed?

Your kernel is missing the radeon driver.

Give the output of:

emerge -pv libdrm mesa xf86-video-ati

Which kernel do you use, and did you compile radeon support into the kernel?

So I'm reading through http://en.gentoo-wiki.com/wiki/Radeon and I don't understand what needs to be done.

My card is an AGP Radeon 9200. Should I use KMS or not?

Are these setting only if using KMS or do I need them anyways?

Linux Kernel Configuration: Enabling radeon KMS necessities

Device Drivers --->
Graphics support --->
<*> Direct Rendering Manager (XFree86 4.1.0 and higher DRI support) --->
<*> ATI Radeon
[] Enable modesetting on radeon by default
General setup --->
[*] Enable PCI quirk workarounds


Including in kernel firmware blobs...I checked out /lib/firmware and I don't see anything relating to Radeon.
Do I need to add something and if so -- what?

# RadeonHD 2000, 3000, and 4000 series cards:

# RadeonHD 5000, a.k.a Evergreen, and newer cards:

radeon/JUNIPER_rlc.bin
radeon/REDWOOD_me.bin
radeon/REDWOOD_pfp.bin
radeon/REDWOOD_rlc.bin) External firmware blobs
(/lib/firmware/) Firmware blobs root directory


Do I need to enable /dev/agpart? I do have an AGP card but the part of the wiki page that says to enable it is only for Kernels <= 2.6.32.
I'm trying to compile 2.6.36.

I am a bit baffled but eager to learn more about how this all works.
I read Linux “Graphics Driver Stack” Explained and it was interesting but I'm not sure how to apply it.

Note: Old Radeon cards (X1900 series and older) don't need the radeon-ucode package or any firmware configuration. Just enable the Direct Rendering Manager and ATI Radeon modesetting.
