Getting 3D (ATI) and v4l to co-exist


Hello,

I'm a relative newbie, having made the switch from Windows a little while back. I've installed the ATI driver (I'm running SuSE 10). For love nor money, I couldn't get sax2 to give me 3D support, so I ran fglrxconfig and generated a new xorg.conf - 3D problem solved. However, this killed v4l (when I run kdetv, the screen goes black and dumps me back to the login screen).

At the moment, I can 'init 5' with my original xorg.conf and use v4l, or 'init 5' with my new xorg.conf and use 3D acceleration. I've tried all manner of combinations, but none work for me. I've pasted my two xorg.conf files below. Any help / hints would be greatly appreciated. I guess my preference would be to use the original xorg.conf (1st one below) as a base. Note - comments have been removed to make the post shorter.

Cheers,

Dougie
