    Question Configuring ATI in server with GUI

    Hi.. I just installed Hardy server and the GUI as well. But, I don't know how to configure xorg.conf. I had also tried the reconfigure command. I want to install ATI driver as well. Please help me ASAP. You can PM to my account.

    But a PM wouldn't allow more people to help you or for your solution to help future forum readers. Please stay away from PMs for support.

    This may help you, though:

    If you want the proprietary ATI drivers
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install linux-restricted-modules-2.6.24-16-server xorg-driver-fglrx
    sudo aticonfig --initial --input=/etc/X11/xorg.conf
    reboot

    reboot
    errr.. cannot find fglrx package.
    I have uncommented all the repository.

    I changed it into xorg-server-fglrx and it worked. But, still I cannot do aticonfig command.

    My configuration of xorg.conf is like this
    Section "InputDevice"
    Identifier "Generic Keyboard"
    Driver "kbd"
    Option "XkbRules" "xorg"
    Option "XkbModel" "pc105"
    Option "XkbLayout" "us"
    Option "XkbVariant" "intl"
    Option "XkbOptions" "lv3:ralt_switch"
    EndSection

    Section "InputDevice"
    Identifier "Configured Mouse"
    Driver "mouse"
    Option "CorePointer"
    EndSection

    Section "Device"
    Identifier "Configured Video Device"
    EndSection

    Section "Monitor"
    Identifier "Configured Monitor"
    EndSection

    Section "Screen"
    Identifier "Default Screen"
    Monitor "Configured Monitor"
    Device "Configured Video Device"
    EndSection

    Section "ServerLayout"
    Identifier "Default Layout"
    Screen "Default Screen"
    EndSection

    Sorry, that should be xorg-driver-fglrx, not fglrx. I edited my post.

    Cool Re: Configuring ATI in server with GUI

    But how can I configure the xorg.conf. I tried to use aticonfig command but it didn't work at all.

    aticonfig is supposed to configure xorg.conf. How did it not work? It is part of the xorg-driver-fglrx package, so you have to install that first. You can also try
    Code:
    sudo dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg
    or this should work
    Code:
    Section "InputDevice"
    	Identifier	"Generic Keyboard"
    	Driver		"kbd"
    	Option		"XkbRules"	"xorg"
    	Option		"XkbModel"	"pc105"
    	Option		"XkbLayout"	"us"
    EndSection
    
    Section "InputDevice"
    	Identifier	"Configured Mouse"
    	Driver		"mouse"
    	Option		"CorePointer"
    EndSection
    
    Section "Device"
    	Identifier	"Configured Video Device"
    	Driver          "fglrx"
    EndSection
    
    Section "Monitor"
    	Identifier	"Configured Monitor"
    EndSection
    
    Section "Screen"
    	Identifier	"Default Screen"
    	Monitor		"Configured Monitor"
    	Device		"Configured Video Device"
    EndSection
    
    Section "ServerLayout"
    	Identifier	"Default Layout"
    	Screen		"Default Screen"
    EndSection

    So I just need to add "fglrx" in "Device" Section?. Just to clarify it.
    Trying to figure out my life.

    Re: Configuring ATI in server with GUI

    I think so. The latest versions of ubuntu or xorg seem to auto-detect the video card driver if you don't specify, and dpkg won't set the driver in xorg.conf. But then I'm not sure if it would load ati or fglrx. aticonfig should also give you a working configuration.
