xorg Crash! Whoo Hoo!


Well, it's happened. I don't know how, and I don't know why, but my xorg crashed. I tried restoring from a backed up .conf file, but I still get the same error report in the output of the xorg log:
Code:
No screens found
So, how do I:

1) Make a new "empty" (default settings) xorg file?

2) Do something else (short of reinstalling the system) to resolve the issue?

Followed it through and everything auto-detected fine.

But I still get (corrected version):

Code:
Fatal Error - No Screens Found
PS: LiveCD and Windows Partition work fine

Can you post more of the error? That isn't really the most helpful part Putting /var/log/Xorg.0.log into a pastebin somewhere with a link would be even better

I ran dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg again and manually selected "fglrx" this time, thinking maybe the ati driver had been selected wrongly somehow.

As this may have changed the log, below is a link to the latest log as well. (I didn't run a compare, because I couldn't remember the terminal command to output the differences between two text files.)
