[SOLVED] Dodgy Xorg Error

Postby Penguin Guy on Sat May 30, 2009 5:27 am

I tried to open the ATI control center but nothing happened - so I go to the terminal and open it and it says 'amdcccle is already running'; so I do 'killall amdcccle', puzzled and then start it again with 'amdcccle'. It turns our that it wasn't opening because of a syntax error in xorg.conf - I have uncommented the line and now things work great. The reason I am posting here is to find out exactly what I have uncommented incase it might break something. xorg.conf below - thanks

Code: Select all
Section "Monitor"
   Identifier   "Configured Monitor"
EndSection

Section "Screen"
   Identifier   "Default Screen"
   Monitor      "Configured Monitor"
   Device      "Configured Video Device"
   DefaultDepth   24
EndSection

Section "Module"
   Load   "glx"
#   Disable   "dri2"
EndSection

Section "Device"
   Identifier   "Configured Video Device"
   Driver   "fglrx"
EndSection

If it matters - I haven't previously touched the xorg.conf file and it was set up entirely by automated programs - envyng I believe.

dri2 is direct rendering 2 and I did not think it was enabled for ATI yet
As you see it should not matter if you comment out the line
Out of curiosity
search for DRI2 (or posibly dri2)
in xorg.log
If you find that it is enabled post back with the model of your card

Don't fix it if it ain't broken, don't break it if you can't fix it

Not enabled.

~ $ cd /var/log/
/var/log $ cat Xorg.0.log | grep dri2
/var/log $ cat Xorg.0.log | grep DRI2
/var/log $

GPU: ATi Radeon 3850

Thanks for your reply - I'm glad to know that everything is fine.
