CLI was used in terms of the old Amiga computer and sometimes referred to in windows.

Just to be clear, CLI was a term used by 'nix admins back in 1986 when I started in this field.  It's been borrowed by other OSes and folks, sure, but it's not a new idea. Smiley

Aaaaahhhhhh, sorry, brain fart.  Okay, I'll give that a try.  I have, however, installed the newest drivers from their site.  Firstly, for those who try it themselves, in order to get it to install you have to run the command:

X_SERVER="x710" ./ati....installer.

They're apparently not aware of Xorg 7.2 yet.   aticonfig still doesn't work for me.  It doesn't segfault, but it never writes a config, either.  I'll try changing the case of those three.

Identifier  "VideoCard0"
Driver      "ati"

Identifier  "aticonfig-Device[0]"
Driver      "fglrx"

That's interesting.  You've got two drivers loaded for the video card.  According to the rest of the conf, it is using both.  I'm thinking I might just try downloading the drivers directly from ATI and trying a manual install.  I have a feeling I'm missing out on a lot by not being able to run aticonfig --initial.

It is set as fglrx.  The section you're looking at is under the "# Default config from install:" part, and is all commented out.  The section that's currently active is below that and is commented as "My config".

Howdy!  Just recently started playing around with Pardus, and must say I've been impressed since day one.  About the only real issue I've found  concerns the ATI Drivers package.  I've installed Pardus on my laptop (an HP nc6000 with an ATI Mobility Radeon 9600 chipset), and while the default drivers installed worked for basic operations, I had some issues with video (all video players showed a blue screen in the video area.  They played the audio, but I got no video output) and of course 3D stuff didn't work at all.  So, I installed the ATI Drivers package.  Unfortunately, that's where my troubles began...

First, it appears the package didn't modify xorg.conf.  When I tried to run aticonfig --initial, it segfaults after making a backup of the original.  So, I pulled a few google-fu moves and was able to cobble together enough information about configuring ATI cards to get to a working xorg.conf.  However, I still have some minor tearing here and there (specifically when the cursor has a "bouncing icon" next to it), 3D stuff still doesn't work, and I'm just not so enthused by the video performance (videos in mplayer are more artifacted than they should be).  So, I'm hoping someone would be kind enough to look over the video card section of my conf and let me know what I might be missing.   I've snipped out comments and mouse stuff to make it easier to read.

I'm hoping to give Beryl a try, too, if that requires a more advanced config.
