The tutorial on how to set up ATI drivers on slackware is pretty iffy, some of the commands didnt work and stuff... are there any other tuts on how to install ATI drivers on slackware??
I followed a tut and did all the magic commands, and eventualy did 'fglrxconfig' and set it up the right way. then restarted the X server and it worked. BUT, how do i know what config file is loaded when i do startx? becauses there is always the Xorg.conf file in the /etc/X11/ directory.
And plus, all graphic apps are running extremly slow, so I doubt it is workign.. How do I ensure that my driver is running?
depends on what version of slack you are running, in a console:
will give you what version of the X server you are using.
also, you cannot go out and follow random guides, make sure they apply first. if that guide was written for slack 9, some things might not apply for slack 10.1 ( this applies for all distro's , there are alot of old guides floating around on the net).
