Not the same on Gentoo. I think I have to find the kernel boot-option
that I can pass to lilo.

Also: When I force remove the modules psb and drm_psb with "rmmod -f"
and then start X I get the same error:

X: symbol lookup error: /usr/lib/xorg/modules/drivers/
undefined symbol: LoaderRefSymLists

X just does not yet like psb.
