    Default Requesting 4870x2 xorg.conf please, aticonfig help/suggestions

    I've set up Catalyst 10.7 on the following system with decent results so far, however I am experiencing a few bugs here and there, and I haven't really begun testing games yet.

    I would like to get Starcraft II working ASAP, however I have been unsuccessful so far. I've set up Starcraft Brood War and it runs fine full screen stretched. I run games via a second X display:

    Code:
    xinit $WINE_SCRIPT_ETC -- :1
    Also compositing is disabled when I boot in KDE and I have to manually resume several times for it to work. It simply says 'self test failed' or something to that nature when I go back to tty1 to check backend output.

    I also get some screen tearing during video playback, and I get screen drawing problems where there is just black blocks until I alt tab out of the browser.


    If anyone could give any tips for a better xorg.conf or post yours so I can compare, as well as any tips on getting Starcraft 2 working I would appreciate it.

    I'm also running bin32-wine-suse 1.3.0-1 and have different wineprefixes set for MS Office, Steam, and Starcraft.

    Well I have a basic system running now, however I still can't seem to get starcraft II working. I'm wondering if I'm missing something with my aticonfig settings.

    Should I have a Device entry for each GPU in xorg.conf?
