I was installing the schneider digital drivers and I made a huge mistake in the configuration. I put the wrong monitor refresh rates in and now when it trys to load I just get a blank screen. I'm now at init 3 and I installed the driver again, but when I try to run fglrxconfig again it tells me that the command is not found. I need to re-run this so I can get a working x-config on. Any ideas what I can do?
What is fglrxconfig, never heard of that one before. I'm not sure of the Mandrake config tool they use nowadays you can run but if X is installed, you can run xf86config as root at the command to configure X at a console.
In the future, please use better and more helpful thread titles. Your's doesn't describe your specific problem. And of course we know you need help apparently since your posting a question. Regards.
fglrx is the configuration for X for Radeon cards. I can't run xf86config either. I think I need to tell it what directory the program is in, but I don't know where it is. I googled but couldn't get anything useful. Thanks to anybody who can help me out here.
