Fedora 11 automatic install has left startx with "no screens found"


After performing the automatic Fedora 11 upgrade, I get messages that it has failed to load module "fglrx", with [atiddxSetup] X version mismatch - detected X.org 7.1.1.901, required X.org 7.4.-1.906, etc

Can someone remind me of the command-line utility to fix this!

you can isssue this command to find out what is the problem with"fglrx"
[CODE]rpm -Va|grep fglrx[CODE]
also if you know the package from which this module is coming form you can verify the package
Code:
rpm -Vp nameofpackage.rpm
In case you want to find the package form which the module has come
[CODE]rpm -Vf nameofexecutable[CODE]

startx, Fedora 11 and fglrx

The answer I was looking for was "system-config-display", which eventually brought Gnome up for root and, very, very slowly, for a normal user. The suggestion of using "rpm -Va|grep fglrx" showed there were old versions of kmod-fglrx lying around for old kernels, but no version apparently for the current kernel (2.6.29.4-167.fc11.i586). Problem a bit clearer in my mind, though not totally solved.
