Using the wrong command I deleted it. But I got Gnome back in low res and reinstalled the AMD Catalyst drivers, so for so good, and I did not need the Clonezilla CD either

I'm not too comfortable with the command line and don't want to destroy my system, so could someone please give some pointers as to what to type in recovery mode to rename xorg.conf and reinstall the video drivers?
- Code: Select all
in recovery mode, if that don't work you are going to hope an expert posts. But it seems that update changed the kernel, and that affects the AMD install.
