This is probably not the right place for this post, but I'm getting desperate and I would really appreciate all help in this matter!
So now to the problem:
I'm trying to use XVideo Overlay in Linux, but I can't get it to work with my integrated ATI Radeon Xpress 1250. I'm using Gentoo 2007.0 with x11-drivers/ati-drivers-8.443.1-r1 and x11-base/xorg-x11-7.2

# lspci|grep "VGA compatible controller:"
01:05.0 VGA compatible controller: ATI Technologies Inc Radeon X1200 Series

I get the following error:
# more /var/log/Xorg.0.log|grep "(WW)"
(WW) `fonts.dir' not found (or not valid) in "/usr/share/fonts/local".
