Well I finally got my Ubuntu Hardy install to use the ATI driver but I still cannot verify it when I run fglrxinfo. Still shows those mesa drivers.

Below is my /etc/Xorg.conf file :)

Could someone tell me what I missed here? I'm using the Radeon X1600.




# xorg.conf (X.Org X Window System server configuration file)
#
# This file was generated by failsafeDexconf, using
# values from the debconf database and some overrides to use vesa mode.
#
# You should use dexconf or another such tool for creating a "real" xorg.conf
# For example:
# sudo dpkg-reconfigure -phigh xserver-xorg

Just out of curiosity, is this the /etc/Xorg.conf file or the /etc/X11/xorg.conf file?

Typically, the xorg.conf is stored in the /etc/X11/ directory.

If you have the file as /etc/Xorg.conf, try this:



cp -v /etc/X11/xorg.conf /etc/X11/xorg.conf.original
cp -v /etc/Xorg.conf /etc/X11/xorg.conf


Hope this helps!

It was the xorg.conf file. Is this file copying the xorg.conf file to the X11 path?
