Hi I'm a newbie, just installed pardus yesterday.  It's really cool, but my graphics driver isn't working.  I have an ATI graphics card - Radwon X1900 XT primary and secondary (dual monitors).  I installed the fglrx modules using the package manager and it got installed along with its dependencies, including the linux kernel.  

The ATI control centre also got installed, but I cannot run aticonfig.  The error it gives me is:
# aticonfig
aticonfig: No supported adapters detected

I ran atigetsysteminfo.sh and this is what I get:
ro # atigetsysteminfo.sh
Configuration Report can be found at: /root/atisysteminfo-report.txt
Starting configuration collection ...
/usr/sbin/atigetsysteminfo.sh: line 38: /bin/echo: Argument list too long
ls: cannot access /etc/X11/XF86Config*: No such file or directory
Created Configuration Report: /root/atisysteminfo-report.txt
Please attach generated Report file to problem reports.

I've attached the created configuration report below.

What do i do to get it working?? thanks:)

Hello and welcome,

did you configurate the ATI-Graphic-Card about Display-Manager?

Systemsettings > System > Display-Manager

From your atisysteminfo-report.txt
I think this means you are not running an updated system.
Currently is
Get all the updates after looking at [Before doing any update].
And maybe your ati problem has been changed/solved after the update?

I thought I'd post this here, since you are using a Radeon card, as it has some useful information in case you are getting any of the mentioned errors in /var/log/Xorg.0.log:
