Well, the best way might be just to logout of X, login to root, and run 'xorgsetup'.

You could also simply change the driver setting in the device section to 'radeon'.

Quote:
Section "Device"

Driver "radeon"

EndSection
Also see 'man radeon'.

Remember that with this particular card only 2D accel is provided.

I thought you have already tried "xorgsetup".

xorgsetup gives errors, but I believe it's already using the radeon driver. Deleting xorg.conf set it to radeon by default when it starts X.

Comparing the logs between when the fgrlx driver was being used and after I deleted xorg.conf, it looks like it probes the video card and sets the appropriate driver.

I don't know if it's flash issue, browser issue or graphics driver issue. Some sites that use a lot of flash almost cripple my system, and it shouldn't be happening. That's the main reason I went to the ATI proprietary driver, thinking it might give me better performance on those sites that seem to bog my system.
