I thought I'd repost here as my original post will get lost in the 7.12 thread.
I can't get Catalyst 7.12 working at all. When I type startx I get a black screen, I can switch back to a console but X has crashed with error message:
I installed 7.12 on Gentoo x86 using a modified 8.433 ebuild. I'm using X.org 7.3, kernel 2.6.23, ATI Radeon x1950 Pro AGP and an HP w22 LCD with native resolution 1680 x 1050.

I've tried using X -configure to produce a new xorg.conf. I tried adding mode lines for 1280x1024. I'm not using a framebuffer for the console.
Any help would be appreciated!
