I emerged xfree and media-video/ati-gatos, but whenever I try to start X with the config file made from

Code:
/usr/X11R6/bin/XFree -configure


But all it does is turn to an off-black and hang. So I reboot with CTRL-ALT-DELETE and check out the log file. The ending of which is here:

Quote:
(II) Reloading /usr/X11R6/lib/modules/libi2c.a
(II) RADEON(0): I2C bus "Radeon multimedia bus" initialized.
(II) RADEON(0): *** 0x8552c78 versus 0x8552c78
(II) RADEON(0): No video input capabilities detected
(II) Loading sub module "theatre"
(II) LoadModule: "theatre"
(II) Loading /usr/X11R6/lib/modules/multimedia/theatre_drv.o
(II) Module theatre: vendor="The XFree86 Project"
compiled for 4.2.0, module version = 1.0.0
ABI class: XFree86 Video Driver, version 0.5


Looks to me like it's screwing up ont he theatre_drv.o load, so I went to the ATI-Gatos site grabbed the latest source and compiled that to get a theatre_drv.o file. Move that over to /usr/X11R6/lib/modules/multimedia and try again. No go.

I've tried quite a bit, but no go. Anyone know how to fix this?
