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).
