at button? I've looked all over and I don't have an at button. You do?

Since you've provided no useful information regarding the problem you're having downloading the ati driver I would have to give you a generic answer and say you're doing something wrong.

If you'd like a more useful answer, provide some useful details.

go here

https://support.ati.com/ics/support/...ge&folderID=27

Download the file depending on which X version you have .

To download the file try right clicking and saving it. That should work

Ah ok, now that makes some sense. You could try downloading the driver from the console instead of in X by using the links or lynx text based web browesr if you think X is causing you problems right now.

Honestly it sounds more like a problem with the mirror or your connection than with X though.
