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
    protected: 6.6.3
      omitted: none

If you got the same problem it might help to rebuild your driver.
