ati 9600 s-video out to tv


i upgraded to fc-5. i want to get s-video out working to my tv because i have no set-top dvd player. (worked in rh-9)

i can see my grub screen on reboot and the text scrolling on startup.

then my graphial login screen makes the tv flicker (prolly a hsync/ vsync issue).

i dl'd the latest *.run file from ati-support

fglrxconfig used to ask what type of moniter/ tv to create a conf file.

aticonfig doesnt prompt me for that info.

here is my xorg.conf. I am so confused about which section to put my tv resolution/hsync:
Code:
# Xorg configuration created by system-config-display

Section "ServerLayout"
	Identifier     "Multihead layout"
	Screen      0  "Screen0" LeftOf "Screen1"
	Screen      1  "Screen1" 0 0

# Multiple FontPath entries are allowed (they are concatenated together)
# By default, a font server independent of the X server is
# used to render fonts.

# To customise the XKB settings to suit your keyboard, modify the
# lines below (which are the defaults).  For example, for a non-U.S.
# keyboard, you will probably want to use:
#	Option	"XkbModel"	"pc102"
# If you have a US Microsoft Natural keyboard, you can use:
#	Option	"XkbModel"	"microsoft"
#
# Then to change the language, change the Layout setting.
# For example, a german layout can be obtained with:
#	Option	"XkbLayout"	"de"
# or:
#	Option	"XkbLayout"	"de"
#	Option	"XkbVariant"	"nodeadkeys"
#
# If you'd like to switch the positions of your capslock and
# control keys, use:
#	Option	"XkbOptions"	"ctrl:swapcaps"
# Or if you just want both to be control, use:
#	Option	"XkbOptions"	"ctrl:nocaps"

here's something:

i transposed
Code:
Section "Device"
	Identifier  "Videocard0"
with
Code:
Section "Device"
	Identifier  "Videocard1"
and vice-versa and i noticed it flickers at a different rate.

Code:
 ### Comment all HorizSync and VertSync values to use DDC:
HorizSync	35 - 60
VertRefresh	60 - 90
Option		"dpms"

i got a solution:

i changed the device driver from radeon to fglrx

when i tried to 'startx' it said:
cannot restore segment prot after reloc: Permission denied

so i 'setenforce 0'

then retried x and all is good.

hope this helps others
