Unhappy X dead after upgrade to Fedora Core 11


I had Fedora Core 10. I used preupgrade to upgrade to FC11.

Now my x is dead.

Here are the contents of my xorg.conf
Code:
# Xorg configuration created by livna-config-display

Section "ServerLayout"
	Identifier     "Default Layout"
	Screen      0  "Screen0" 0 0
EndSection

Section "Files"
	ModulePath   "/usr/lib/xorg/modules/extensions/fglrx"
	ModulePath   "/usr/lib/xorg/modules"
EndSection

Section "ServerFlags"
	Option	    "AIGLX" "on"
EndSection

Section "Device"
	Identifier  "Videocard0"
	Driver      "fglrx"
	Option	    "OpenGLOverlay" "off"
	Option	    "VideoOverlay" "on"
EndSection

Section "Screen"
	Identifier "Screen0"
	Device     "Videocard0"
	DefaultDepth     24
EndSection

Section "Extensions"
	Option	    "Composite" "Enable"
EndSection

And here are the contents of /var/log/Xorg.0.log
Code:

fglrx is unlikely to work properly in Fedora 11

boot into runlevel 3 (append runlevel 3 to kernel line before boot)

login as root

Uninstall all fglrx related packages with yum or rpm


If you installed fglrx directly, then the uninstall script is in /usr/share/ati

Use driver radeon

How do I install the Radeon driver?

You don't - it's part of the X package.

In fact, all you need to do is replace fglrx with radeon in your xorg.conf file and reboot X. (Note that ctrl-alt-backspace will not reboot X unless you change the DontZap option to true in the ServerFlags section of xorg.conf. (See the F11 release notes for details. The change to the default DontZap setting was made by the X-server people, not Red Hat.))

Thankyou, this worked perfectly.
