Hi, i`m having problems trying to start x. (I emerged gnome, configured xorg.conf with xorgconfig, and emerged the drivers i needed...). When i try to start x i get this?

X Window System Version 7.0.0
Release Date: 21 December 2005
X Protocol Version 11, Revision 0, Release 7.0
Build Operating System:Linux 2.6.15-gentoo-r5 i686
Current Operating System: Linux tux 2.6.17-gentoo-r4 #1 SMP Fri Aug 25 21:38:38 BRT 2006 i686
Build Date: 26 August 2006
Before reporting problems, check http://wiki.x.org
to make sure that you have the latest version.
Module Loader present
Markers: (--) probed, (**) from config file, (==) default setting,
(++) from command line, (!!) notice, (II) informational,
(WW) warning, (EE) error, (NI) not implemented, (??) unknown.
(==) Log file: "/var/log/Xorg.0.log", Time: Sun Aug 27 00:22:06 2006
(==) Using config file: "/etc/X11/xorg.conf"
The XKEYBOARD keymap compiler (xkbcomp) reports:
> Warning: Type "ONE_LEVEL" has 1 levels, but <RALT> has 2 symbols
> Ignoring extra symbols
Errors from xkbcomp are not fatal to the X server

waiting for X server to shut down FreeFontPath: FPE "/usr/share/fonts/misc" refc ount is 2, should be 1; fixing.

I think i should get a message telling me what the fatal error is... Any idea about what is wrong?

Best regards, Milosevic.

Yea, please do this and post it.

Also, posting xorg.conf can help.
Post that without the comments if possible, which can be done by
grep -v '^#' /etc/X11/xorg.conf

I've got the same problem, but when i try the grep EE /var/log/Xorg.log.0 all i get is

(II) Loading extension MIT-SCREEN-SAVER

And i realise how much of a noob question this is but how do you copy the xorg.conf into this forum when your using links? I dont relish typing the entire thing out.

Peace

Code:
grep -v '^#' /etc/X11/xorg.conf > ~/xorg_temp


then put this file on an other computer, eg via ftp, or even scp

That works, its wierd, if you try to startx on its own it doesnt work, but if you try using fluxbox or gnome its fine for some reason. That might just be my problem.

The annoying thing is its not viewed as an error in the logs, so it shouldnt be crashing out

I know as well have this error. I have recompiled Xorg and reran xorgconfig and still have the same errors in my log as everyone else. I also have recompiled the nvidia-drivers as well.

Exact same thing here. I migrated to gcc 4.1 and 2006.1 and now it does not work. If I add twm to my .xinitrc file it will start fine, however if I try to run gnome or gdm life is not good and I get the same results as you.

After I upgraded gcc and did my emerge -ev world, I noticed several things that were "weird". I finally recompiled a new kernel with the new gcc and booted it up. Everything works fine.

I noticed of all the weird things that could happen, when I ran /etc/init.d/zzfah start, it would just sit there. There were several other things that would not start or gave me fits getting them started. After booting the new kernel, all was back to normal.

Could this be related to the problems you're having? Maybe worth trying.

:D :D :D :D :D
