Hey,

I cannot get X To load on my Live DVD. I have an i686 version, only one I could find. I'm running Gentoo 2007.0, a Radeon 9250 graphics card and an AMD Athlon XP processor. When I key in startx, it scrolls some text and then yields a few errors:

dlopen: /usr/lib/xorg/modules/extensions/libGLcore.so: _glXActiveScreens
(EE) Failed to load /usr/lib/xorg/modules/extensions/libGLcore.so
(EE) Failed to load module ''GLcore'' (loader failed, 7)
(EE) Failed to load module ''ati'' (module does not exist, 0)
(EE) No drivers exist.

It then says Fatal Server Error, no screens found, XIO: fatal IO error 104 (connection reset by peer) on X server '':0.0''

I find it hard to believe there are no drivers for my graphics card. I've loaded much older distro's with NO problem before. Can anyone shed some light as to what may be going on? I'm still a novice with Linux, detailed help is much appreciated.

Regards,

Elwood
