fglrx xorg.conf file info


Hello,

Can anyone tell me where I can find info on manually configuring xorg.conf when using fglrx ATI driver? I'm pretty much convinced my graphics driver isnt loading properly and causing serious slowdown, but I dont know how to interpret the xorg.conf file.

What makes you say that? Are you getting the slowdown problem running any X program or just 3D apps? If you want to find out which driver X uses for your card when it starts. In your xorg.conf, you should see a section that looks similar to this one:

Code:
# === ATI device section ===

Section "Device"
    Identifier                          "ATI Graphics Adapter"
    Driver                              "fglrx"
The Driver line should be set to "fglrx" as above to use ATI's drivers.

The file I'm using was generated by fglrxconfig, a program that comes with the fglrx drivers to create a working xorg.conf. If you're having trouble, you might want to run this program. If you need further help on understanding the X config file, try looking at the xorg.conf man page (access it by typing "man xorg.conf" (no quotes) in the console)
