I am following the instructions over at wiki.cchtml.com, on installing the fglrx drivers. I tried the bog standard repository install, but when I get to editing Xorg.conf, the file is empty; and when I close gedit it tells me to save changes (maybe it always does that, I don't use it much).
Ultimately I have 2 problems (well, there are more, but these 2 for now):
1) Why is Xorg.conf empty (permissions?)
2) Still can't get fglrx installed.
Basically I want OpenGL support. Mobo is a Foxconn (PoS, audio drivers are terrible even on Windows) with an ATI Chipset. Card is a 512MB Radeon 2600Pro made by Sapphire I believe. Running 8.04, upgraded from 7.10 which was the liveCD I had.
The default drivers work fine in that the display works, just without OpenGL.
The current install I have is probably unclean from so many half-installs, should I completely format and try again?
