Unhappy Failed to load module "NVdriver" (module does not exist, 0)


i'm using stable gentoo (#ACCEPT_KEYWORDS="~x86" commented).
New material so fresh install :

i have started from stage1 (1.4rc2) on athlon mp architecture.

I don't have any emerge problem. However i'm unable to start X :

[root@gui - 19:49:21 - ~/files_2_save] # startx

XFree86 Version 4.2.1 / X Window System

Release Date: 3 September 2002
        If the server is older than 6-12 months, or if your card is
        newer than the above date, look for a newer version before
        reporting problems.  (See http://www.XFree86.Org/)
