Re: ati radeon 9700M and X
i already used the precompiled packages..
i also used alien to make a deb package from the rpm that ati offers..
the system shows these stripes when i switch to console or log out of kde...
and then the whole system crashes..
i found a howto where another configuration of XFree86-4 is described..
i also tested fglrxconfig... the result is the same.. it works but
console or logging out... it all crashes..

There are packaged drivers, see
the problem is that when i want to switch to console the system hangs
and some stripes are visible...
I have a 9600M and I see the stripes too, sometimes. They are thin and
somewhat moving horizontally. But they go away when I switch to console
or another X display and back.
are there any settings to be made in /etc/X11/XFree86-4?
fglrxconfig will create a XF86Config-4 for you. It worked out of the box
Good luck, Mario
