    Edit xorg.conf on Karmic

    Hello people,

    I'm running a computer with ATI Radeon 9200 (AGP) graphics card and Ubuntu Karmic. I found out on the Web (http://www.phoronix.com/forums/showthread.php?t=14805) that in order to boost its performance, I should add the line
    Code:
    Option "AccelMethod" "EXA"
    to the xorg.conf file. I know how to do that on older Ubuntu versions, but here in Karmic there's no such file. Is there any workaround available? TIA for any help.

    Is it not still in /etc/X11/xorg.conf ?
    It is on my system.

    Karmic doesn't use it but you can generate one using Xorg -configure and then copy it to /etc/X11.

    Theoretically maybe, but when i try it out, this is the output:

    Code:
    Fatal server error:
    Server is already active for display 0
    	If this server is no longer running, remove /tmp/.X0-lock
    	and start again.
    
    
    Please consult the The X.Org Foundation support 
    	 at http://wiki.x.org
     for help.

    Try rebooting and running:

    Code:
    sudo X -configure

    Cool, yeah you have to kill x to configure it that way. Glad to see you got it.
