My name is oliver and ich have a big problem.
I use Slackware-current on my Laptop and
I have a problem with fglrx since my last update.
My XServer and fglrx doesnt work with Xorg 7.5 .
Therefore my Question.
How I can downgrade Xorg 7.5 to 7.4 .
Excuse me for my bad englisch.
My Hardware is a Ati Radeon Xpress 200.
You'll have to downgrade to at least Xorg 7.3. In addition, you'd have to downgrade your kernel. Honestly, if you must use fglrx, you should stick with an older distribution, such as Slackware 12.* or Ubuntu 8.10. Nothing newer will work with fglrx on your card since you'll have to use fglrx 9.3.
You're much better off just using the open source radeon driver.
Hmmm... Perhaps I have the versions off slightly. In any case, you would still have to downgrade Xorg and the kernel, and that's not recommended.
To get Xorg working with the radeon driver, you should start by starting X without any /etc/X11/xorg.conf file and then show us the /var/log/Xorg.0.log file that is generated so that we can figure out what's going on.
