    Michael,

    While I agree in part (I think the x200 blank screen to an actual display was a big deal :) ), the last few builds have never compiled on Fedora. How do I measure this improvement when I...

    Michael,

    While this is good advice in general, one of the actions from the rpm files is to mess up the /etc/X11/xorg.conf file on my FC6 x86_64 laptop. It dropped vesa all over the place and I had...

    Please get rid of all the extraneous lines in your xorg.conf file. FC6 does not even require an xorg.conf file for proper operation. We (the users of fglrx) need it only for the fglrx driver. In...
