  • Problem with Open Source (ATI) drivers on Xpress 200M

    Hello.
    I have been trying to install the Open Source Drivers for my Xpress 200m (following the instructions foud on https://help.ubuntu.com/community/RadeonDriver ). The problem is that when i restart my computer after modifying the xorg.conf file, Ubuntu tells me there was an error parsing the config file and offers me to go back to the default graphic config.

    This is how the xorg.conf file looks like after modifying it:
    Code:
    # xorg.conf (X.Org X Window System server configuration file)
    #
    # This file was generated by dexconf, the Debian X Configuration tool, using
    # values from the debconf database.
    #
    # Edit this file with caution, and see the xorg.conf manual page.
    # (Type "man xorg.conf" at the shell prompt.)
    #
    # This file is automatically updated on xserver-xorg package upgrades *only*
    # if it has not been modified since the last upgrade of the xserver-xorg
    # package.
    #
    # Note that some configuration settings that could be done previously
    # in this file, now are automatically configured by the server and settings
    # here are ignored.
    #
    # If you have edited this file but would like it to be automatically updated
    # again, run the following command:
    #   sudo dpkg-reconfigure -phigh xserver-xorg

    That's whole the xorg.conf file?

      It is even a bit much, usually U config files are even smaller.

        It should work fine without a config file at all.

            New ubuntu stores it in hal rules.

              Interesting... and that's good or bad?

                Well X configured using hal use is very interesting, like on the fly configuring for virtualbox or wacom tablets.

                  The main problem seems to be fixed, i didnt touch anything, it just worked all of the suden.
                  Now i have another problem; i try to run Warsow (the game), and it just shows me a black screen, and changes my res to 800x600. Also, the Cedega system tests tools tell me that the 3D aceleration isnt working properly =/

                  will installing the radeonhd drivers fix the problem? =/

                    Does Warsow or Cedega generate a log with more info ? You'd be looking for some kind of OpenGL-related message.

                    For a 3D problem switching to radeonhd probably won't make a difference - the 3D code is in the Mesa driver.
