Subject: RE: ATI configuration?
Date: Thu, 4 May 2006 06:41:29 -0700
I just did an emerge on Xorgautoconfig and ran the command, but the
xorg.conf file it makes doesn't work - it tells me that ATI(0) Adapter has
not been initialized, and Screen(s) found, but none have a usable
configuration.

It sets Mode 1024x768 at several depths, which I can live with, and default
mode of 16, which I can also live with.  Now if I could just get it to work
...

Thanks!

There is an ebuild Xorgautoconfig specifically for this purpose.  The 
generated xorg.conf needs some slight adjustments but seems to give good 
results.
