    Open a terminal and type
    uname -r
    that will tell you which kernel and flavor you're using.

    Here's my XF86Config-4. It's pretty heavily customized. I really don't think it will help you out, though...

    # XF86Config-4 (XFree86 X Window System server configuration file)
    #
    # This file was generated by dexconf, the Debian X Configuration tool, using
    # values from the debconf database.
    #
    # Edit this file with caution, and see the XF86Config-4 manual page.
    # (Type "man XF86Config-4" at the shell prompt.)
    #
    # This file is automatically updated on xserver-xfree86 package upgrades *only*
    # if it has not been modified since the last upgrade of the xserver-xfree86
    # package.
    #
    # If you have edited this file but would like it to be automatically updated
    # again, run the following commands as root:
    #
    # cp /etc/X11/XF86Config-4 /etc/X11/XF86Config-4.custom
    # md5sum /etc/X11/XF86Config-4 >/var/lib/xfree86/XF86Config-4.md5sum
    # dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xfree86

    You install a .deb file with the command:

    dpkg -i packagename.deb

    BTW, shouting like that wan't get you any help any sooner, and in fact a lot of us will simply avoid replying to someone doing that. Also, you will most likely get a better response to a question if you start a new thread, rather than piggybacking on an old thread.

    I can't really help you much, because I never install the official Ati driver. I only use the built in open source ati driver, partly because I'm simply to lazy to bother installing the Ati driver and mainly because the open source driver works well enough for me.

    You may get better, expert advice if you start a new thread, remembering to explain which distribution you are using and what your hardware is.

    Okay, doing a search on your username, I deduce that you are almost certainly using the current Debian Stable (Sarge), but that you did NOT choose to install the Desktop package during install.

    If you're not too heavily invested in your current setup, I recommend you retry with a clean re-install. Just use the net-installer as you did before, and when it asks you what packages you want to install, DO install the desktop workstation stuff. It will do all the hard work for you--installing GNOME, KDE, and gdm, all fully configured with fully configured default software.

    It will also ask you what video driver to use. Select "ati" at that time, and you won't have to do it later.

    Most likely, the default /etc/X11/XF86Config-4 will have entries only up to 800x600 resolution. You'll have to manually edit that file to insert, say, "1024x768" if you want higher resolutions. Note that you can press Ctrl-Alt-Backspace to restart your X server so you don't have to entirely reboot after editing your XF86Config-4. The cleanest time to do this is at the login screen, rather than directly from a running session.
