I have an Sabayon, installed with driver xf86-ati-video, all working sometimes, if...but see below,,,
the system have an /etc/X11/xorg.conf, but if this xorg.conf is used, then.. no X, xdm or kdm gives only a black screen and return to login prompt...
/etc/init.d/xdm restart restarts it, but gives the same black screen...
But if in /etc/X11, [i]xorg.conf[/] file is deleted, removed or renamed, then all working great, without xorg.conf.
But the issue is, when rebooted, the xorg-conf file is automatically "recriated" and no more X, black. Sems that system working well without xorg.conf, but the same system "remake" xorg.conf.
