    Interesting. I'll try that when i get home. I'm at work atm. To tell you the truth I don't see how that's possible but at this point lol not much would surprise me.

    EndSection
    
    Section "Extensions"
    	Option	    "Composite" "Enable"
    EndSection
    I'm going to delete the part that says:

    Section "ServerFlags"
    Option "AIGLX" "false"
    EndSection
    and restart X.

    and it did nothing which i figured it wouldnt as i'm not using aiglx.

    Re: Pimp my xorg.conf ---> ati x1650 and 3d games

    Oh and just to recap. I cant even open catalyst control center which says the driver isn't installed (even though it is) whenever i run glxgears the system halts, and whenever i try to logout now the system halts. This problem has been reproduced 3 times on the same HW configuration and driver was installed each time using instructions from the wiki.

    Re: Pimp my xorg.conf ---> ati x1650 and 3d games

    I think the problem may be in this section of your xorg.conf...

    Code:
    Section "Device"
    	Identifier	"ATI Technologies Inc ATI Default Card"
    	Driver		"fglrx"
    	Busid		"PCI:2:0:0"
    	Option		"XaaNoOffscreenPixmaps"	"true"
    	Option		"AddARGBGLXVisuals"	"true"
    	Option		"AllowGLXWithComposite"	"true"
    	Option		"EnablePageFlip"	"true"
    	Option		"AccelMethod"	"EXA"
    	Option		"MigrationHeuristic"	"greedy"
    	Option		"DRI"	"true"
    	Option		"TexturedVideo"	"on"
    	Option		"UseFastTLS"	"0"
    	Option		"BlockSignalsOnLock"	"on"
    	Option		"KernelModuleParm"	"locked-userpages=0"
    	Option		"ForceGenericCPU"	"off"
    	Option		"VideoOverlay"	"on"
    	Option		"OpenGLOverlay"	"off"
    EndSection
    AFAIK, you can only have one overlay method on. You've got VideoOverlay and TexturedVideo on .. try turning Video Overlay off, since TexturedVideo is intended for the newer ATI cards Here is mine for reference - it's an X1300 Mobility...ignore all the stuff for dual-head.

    Code:
    Section "Device"
    	Identifier	"ATI Graphics Adapter 0"
    	Driver		"fglrx"
    	Option		"VideoOverlay"	"off	"
    	Option		"OpenGLOverlay"	"off"
    	Option 		"TexturedVideo" "on"
    	Option		"EnablePrivateBackZ"	"yes"
    	Option		"UseInternalAGPGART"	"no"
    	Option 		"XAANoOffscreenPixmaps" "on" 
    	Option 		"UseFastTLS" "1" 
    	Option 		"BackingStore" "on" 
    	#dual head Option		"DesktopSetup"	"horizontal"
    	#dual head Option		"HSync2"	"64"
    	#dual head Option		"VRefresh2"	"60"
    	#dual head Option		"Mode2"	"1280x1024"
    	#dual head Option		"PairModes"	"1280x800+1280x1024"
    	#NOT USED	Option		"MonitorLayout"	"LVDS,AUTO"
    	Busid		"PCI:1:0:0"
    EndSection
    And I second the bit about going to http://wiki.cchtml.com/index.php/Ubu...allation_Guide and following the troubleshooting info there.

    Hope this helps!

    Re: Pimp my xorg.conf ---> ati x1650 and 3d games

    lol my xorg.conf has changed 3 times since that post. and my posts above stated that was the exact guide i used each time. Thanks for the replies though.

    now check this out!
    I got hella p.o.ed and did exactly what i was told not to bother trying. installed hardy instead of gutsy

    kurse@kurse-desktop:~$ fglrxinfo
    display: :0.0 screen: 0
    OpenGL vendor string: ATI Technologies Inc.
    OpenGL renderer string: Radeon X1650 Series
    OpenGL version string: 2.1.7415 Release
    !! NO MORE MESA THANK BAWDo
    and...
    27392 frames in 5.0 seconds = 5478.215 FPS
    27404 frames in 5.0 seconds = 5480.686 FPS
    26826 frames in 5.0 seconds = 5365.080 FPS
    23746 frames in 5.0 seconds = 4749.166 FPS
    22848 frames in 5.0 seconds = 4569.472 FPS
    26758 frames in 5.0 seconds = 5351.540 FPS
    !!!!
    Diagnosis: HARDY <3's ATI

    I'll have nexuiz installerated in a minute here.
    Thanks everyone for your thoughts and for giving me the same link i was already using 5 times! lol j/k but thank you. Hopefully this helps someone.

    EDIT: In hindsight i think this may have something to do with my buggy sk8n mobo. My ati card wont even display the bios splash correctly due to its nforce chipset. Iunno.
