Don't Have xorgconfig in FC4, Where can I get it?


Hi, my installation of FC4 did not come with 'xorgconfig' (I did the personal desktop install), does anybody know where I can get it from?

Any info would be great, Buck

To get a list of commands and files related to xorg, run:
Code:
 apropos xorg
They might have changed the name of the file or something.

nothing related to configuring xorg (other than xord.conf) appears, does someone know where I can get a copy from?

I'm not so sure, but I think the "xbase-clients" package provides the /usr/bin/X11/xorgconfig file.

As far as I know there is no xorgconfig in FC4. Why don't you open the xorg.conf file in /etc/X11/ and do the configuration from there?

I want to configure my ATI Radeon X850 XT PE (as X is only using the standard VESA driver), So that e.g. Tux Racer has more than 1 frame a second. Does anybody know what I should change to get the full performace out of my card?

Any info wud be great, Buck

I set my card to ATI x800 XT (as it's the closest to X850 XT PE), so that should work
