    changing your Xserver

    How do I change which Xserver is running, it keeps trying to load the FDserver, when I want it to load the AGPserver?

    Why do you have different X servers installed? Why not use XFree86?
    Anyway, the best way to do it is to change the symlink /usr/X11R6/bin/X to point at the X server that you wish to use. You should also check your display manager settings so that they use the symlink instead of the target X server.

    my bad

    I really dont understand what you mean by all of that. I thought Xfree8666 used different servers. I know that original it was running the FBserver. I wanted to change that but now I have a different problem. It comes back from the posts I was making about a week ago. I have a radeon 9000pro. I downloaded a rpm that creates a module driver for the ati driver. I almsot have it running but the Xserver still wont run it gives me this error.

    XFree86 is only one X server. In versions before 4 there were a few different ones, but since version 4 it has been using a dynamic module loader to use a dynamic driver architecture instead. Just change the driver setting in your /etc/X11/XF86Config, or /etc/X11/XF86Config-4 if it exists.

    That error that you get from the Radeon driver indicates that it couldn't find a card matching any of those that it supports. Maybe the driver is buggy. Try submitting something to those who developed this driver.
