Uninstalling stuff


How do I uninstall stuff, particularly ATI drivers and reinstalling the default XFree86 drivers.

Have you looked into /usr/X11R6/lib/modules or /usr/X11R6/lib/modules/drivers? I don't know about ATI, but for NVIDIA, it's just a matter of changing driver name in /etc/X11/XFree86config file.

May be you can just remove this file:
/lib/modules/x.x.xx-x/kernel/drivers/char/drm/fglrx.o

This info is in ATI website. How did you install the driver? rpm, *.bin, or manual compile?

It was an RPM file. I even ran the configuration program and set it to 1024 x 768.

Have you tried uninstalling it with:

rpm -e <package-name> ?
