Hi all!

   New to Gentoo, just followed the handbook install for amd64 and then for

    I'm seeing the server segfault on 'startx'.   Here is the console
output (and I've attached the logfile).

   Any ideas?   I can't figure out why kernel modesetting isn't working
(the newer versions of Linux don't have explicit modesetting config items
and the framebuffer drivers are totally disabled, as per the install docs),
but the larger problem is that segfault.   Any ideas on how to even start
to address this?
