    Hmmm... I misworded that question. I meant that I hadn't done any major updates yet (except for the kernel). But I think I can tell from your response that it doesn't matter either way.

    Maybe tomorrow I will reinstall and give it one more go... because from what I've read I really should be able to get this to work.

    As long as you installed the drivers again AFTER running the updates, it shouldn't break or adversely effect anything.

    Just a last shot in the dark... but I have done an update of everything on my system (ie. yum update), just the kernel and some various packages. That wouldn't have any effect... would it?

    You mean just what gets installed during the install of FC6? Yeah, I'll probably just live with that. I'm not gaming or anything - I just like to learn. But I've been spending too long on this (much more than just today).

    Cheers.

    yeah - doesn't matter what I do... X server always crashes at boot. I have to rescue and start over each time.

    Alright, I'm fooling around with it with just using single head mode. Now fglrxinfo is giving the tungsten graphics output.

    I'm really at a loss here. Perhaps I won't worry about hardware acceleration.

    Those radeon sections aren't being referenced so you could actually remove them, but are fine staying there.

    Did you try eliminating the Xinerama line and then getting it running first in a single head config?

    Looking in my xorg file, I'm wondering why I have 3 device sections? Should I change the lines with 'radeon' to 'fglrx' ??
