Unhappy kde in slackware, Graphics problem!

I have just installed slackware 12.1 with all of the packages. When it boots and I type startx, it boots but the colors are completely distorted. I have a Radeon saphire graphix card. Would this be a driver problem or did it install a driver by default? Thnx

Have you tried 'xorgsetup'? It tries to detect the correct X settings for your computer. You can find more info on Slackware X configuration at:

hope this works ^^
