    I tried the 8.30.3 drivers too, and this is what I get:

    [root@mckinney src]# ati-driver-installer-8.30.3.run --buildpkg Fedora/FC6
    Creating directory fglrx-install
    Verifying archive integrity... All good.

        It doesn't look like from your configuration that Composite was disabled. Try disabling Composite and it should work (see here). Though it is important to note that the Xpress 200 series is notorious with Linux.

            also i see you have a build for a xorg.conf file in the link you sent me... do you think that copying that may fix my issues? i know probably not but its worth asking.

              The blank screen I believe is one of the common problems with the Xpress 200.

                Please if you are having a blank screen try the Option "BusType" "PCI" in the driver section of the xorg.conf file. It worked for me . Check to see if you ssh into the machine and see what was going on. Mine had the cpu spiked at 100%.(x11) I currently have XGL working in fc6 using the 8.26 drivers.

                  ok tried the BusType PCI code and that didnt have any affect... i did try to Secure shell and nothing seemed out of the ordinary just the fact that when i attempted to see if open gl worked it gave me the same old "direct rendering disabled"... could someone with FC6 running openGL and has a xpress 200M post an example xorg.conf file. Thanks

                    question, did you mean the Driver section or the Device section when talking about BusTpe PCI command line. I just want to clarify to make sure i got this correct
