Default Something happened on the way to X

Installing Gentoo on my computer... with
ACCEPT_KEYWORDS="amd64"
VIDEO_CARDS="fglrx"
INPUT_DEVICES="evdev"

everything's fine until I emerge xorg-server, which returns:

Any known workaround ? Should I fill a bug report ?
gentoo without a GUI is quite frustrating...

I don't use ATI but I think I read here a while back that ATI drivers
have to be compatible with certain versions of xorg. You may want to
see if you can use a newer version of the ATI drivers.


You can look at the ebuild to see what exact versions. From what i
read, it looks like you may need the 10 series instead of the 9 series.
Then again, it is sometimes backwards from what I am thinking. May be
worth testing anyway.

You need to emerge ati-drivers-8.721. Despite the numbering, its
actually the latest....

No 8.721 is a beta version (10.4-beta), 10.4 is the latest. See
http://bugs.gentoo.org/show_bug.cgi?id=310367
... especially comment #59 and #63.
