    Does anyone know how to install ATI's Propitary driver on xorg's desktop. It errors out because it is not xfree86 I did a force install and it created a xfree86 config file but I do not know how to transfer the information to the xorg.conf file Sory it is so long but, I am at wits end on this.

    I'm not sure there is much you can do here. ATI needs to update their driver for compatibility with x.org solution. Let's hope they will do that in future :)

    Yeah but it doesn't look any good right now. It looks like ATI has abandoned us Linux user :( What a shame. Over 4 monzhs wothout any new driver. And even the current one doesn't have any hardware acceell for Xrender.
