Re: ati radeon XF86Config
I'm not great at interpreting the Xserver output, but here's a couple
of things to check.
1) Have you compiled support for agpgart in the kernel? And are you
using the kernel-supplied radeon driver?
2) Did you generate the config file by hand? If not, you could try
to let X configure itself, with the -configure option (which will
generate an XF86Config-4 file for you).
