    Maybe for your situation, you need will need to wait for next driver release.

    By the way, were any previous drivers worked? Maybe revert back to older version would fix your problem.

    So, what the right options are?

    I see. Does it still honor the same "Makers" for standard Xorg log file (see below)?

    Code:
    Markers: (--) probed, (**) from config file, (==) default setting,
    	(++) from command line, (!!) notice, (II) informational,
    	(WW) warning, (EE) error, (NI) not implemented, (??) unknown.
    So, do we still search for 'EE' or 'WW' for any error or warning in the log file in order to figure out or finding clues on what went wrong, and '**' for what has been enabled in the config file? Or, with fglrx, we are suppose to exhaustively read through the entire X log file to hunt for problem?

    Also note that these days the drivers get most of their input from the amdpcsdb file, not xorg.conf.
    I see.

    Just curious, should we edit this file? If we are suppose to edit this file, how should we do it? Where can we find this file in the system?

    Well, I've commented ALL options, except those two. Video playback freezes system completely. Not saying about browsing in konq.. 2D performance is slow.

    The BusID is not needed when there is only 1 ATI card inside.

    I mean you should be using those two options and nothing more as less options means best experience.

    Driver "fglrx"
    BusID "PCI:1:0:0"
    and try again?
