Problems with X11


I just installed Fluxbuntu on my new Toshiba A210-11P... Had a few issues with wireless, which are sorted now (using ndiswrapper). After installing the ATI drivers from X11 seems to be very sluggish with things like scrolling... fgl_glxgears segfaults, glxgears is sluggish...

My xorg.conf is as follows:

# xorg.conf (xorg X Window System server configuration file)
# This file was generated by dexconf, the Debian X Configuration tool, using
# values from the debconf database.
# Edit this file with caution, and see the xorg.conf manual page.
# (Type "man xorg.conf" at the shell prompt.)
# This file is automatically updated on xserver-xorg package upgrades *only*
# if it has not been modified since the last upgrade of the xserver-xorg
# package.
# If you have edited this file but would like it to be automatically updated
# again, run the following command:
#   sudo dpkg-reconfigure -phigh xserver-xorg
