  • What are some xorg.conf options that should/can be enabled?

    I have an HD 4870 by the way.
    Thanks!

    Which driver are you running - radeon or radeonhd ? Do you already have the proper drm installed, DRI and EXA enabled etc. ?

      radeon
      How would I check to see if the rest is enabled?

        Look at /var/log/Xorg.0.log to see exactly what is loading.

            Code:
            (EE) RADEON(0): [dri] RADEONDRIGetVersion failed to open the DRM
            [dri] Disabling DRI.
            (II) RADEON(0): using shadow framebuffer
            That a bad thing?

              The default options are default for a reason. In most cases you shouldn't need to set any options. You should only need to set options to work around a problem or test an experimental feature. The only option that is useful to set is:
              Option "AccelMethod" "EXA"
              Which will soon be the default anyway.

                Oh ok thanks. Other than that, are there any visible issues in my log?

                  You'll need an updated drm if you want 2D (EXA) and video (Xv) acceleration. 2.6.30 is the first kernel with the necessary drm bits.

                    I guess I'll just have to wait till it comes out of testing or just patch the kernel now.
