    try aticonfig --help in the terminal.
    Thanks, tried that one already, but could not really find something. Still looking...

    Edit: some of the options I tried give the same error as amdcccle:

    aticonfig --query-dispattrib lvds,overscan
    aticonfig: xcb_xlib.c:50: xcb_xlib_unlock: Assertion `c->xlib.lock' failed.

    Well, let's ho.. - erm - "wait" for 8.43, anyway.

      There are basically two ways to install it:

      1) Use the driver from the ATI download page. Because of Kernel 2.6.23, you will need to apply a patch for it to work. I have not tried this out myself.

      2) Install the packages from the livna repository, as described here:

        ... and finally some good news: I really don't understand why, but suspend and hibernate are magically working again on my laptop (Inspiron 6400, Moblity Radeon X1400, Fedora 8, kernel!

        Did anybody have the same luck?

          Is the Livna fglrx package already patched for the 2.6.23 kernel? I'm running Fedora 8 with an X1400 and can't get the desktop effects or control panel working using the livna package. I have the same problem described in the first post here:

          I wasn't sure if I should download the ati installer and patch it (or even how to do that).

          Any ideas?
