I had a problem with my Gentoo installation. After a big update, X would not start. Running startx told me this:
(EE) module ABI major version (0) doesn't match the server's version (1) (EE) Failed to load module "ati" (module requirement mismatch, 0)
Googling around I found this page: Module Requirement Mismatch It told me something like "you better rebuild your ATI driver" - well not directly. After the big update I was running xorg-server-1.1.1. I ran the command:
# emerge -av xf86-video-ati ... [ebuild U] x11-drivers/xf86-video-ati-6.6.3 USE="dri -debug" 0 kB ... x11-drivers/xf86-video-ati selected: 184.108.40.206 protected: 6.6.3 omitted: none ...
If you got the same problem it might help to rebuild your driver.
