Gui tool for configuring open source radeon drivers. Forgot the name. Help!

Last year I had a gui tool for configuring the radeon open source drivers in my old slackware install but now I forgot the name of it. I'm pretty sure it was gtk based and no matter what I type in google I can't seem to find any reference to it. There is a radeontool but that's not it.

Anyone know what the name for it was, or something else that provides easy configuring of the open source radeon drivers? I remember it had lots of options to configure including some I've never heard of. Thought it'd be easy to find now since it seemed so officially supported during the time I used it!

nevermind found it! It's DRICONF . I actually think it works with other cards besides ati! I guess that's why I couldn't find it since I was looking for a "radeon gui tool for linux". This is great since it probly works for 3dfx graphic cards as well! I have a voodoo 4 4500 with a zalman heatpipe and later to add ramsinks that i'd like to bench! Also works great in real-mode pure dos for running carmageddon in 3dfx mode! Other games are still great with that card under windows 9x like resident evil, final fantasy VII, etc.!1one

It'd be nice if someone also knew a simple binary download for ati overlock 0.3 for ubuntu. It's a simple gui frontend for over-under clocking ati cards using rovclock as it's backend.
