    ATI Driver Issues Please Help


    I keep geting this error from xwindow when booting up I don't know how many different setups i have tried now but its geting old I am geting tired of playing 20 questions with ati driver install.

    (ww) warning, (EE) error, (NI) not implemented, (??) unkown.
    (==) log file: blah blah date time that thing
    (==)Using config file: "/etc/X11/XF86Config-4
    (WW) fglrx: No matching Device section for instance (BusID PCI:1:5:1) fomodprobe: can't locate module fglrx
    [drm]failed to load kernal module "fglrx"
    (EE) fglrx(0): DRISScreenInt failed! <------ no ****
    (EE) xf860OpenSerial: Cannot open device /dev/Aopen <---- I don't know what it wants with the damn mouse!
    no such file or directory
    (EE)Mouse1: cannotopen input device
    (EE) PreInit failed for input device "Mouse1"
    No core pointer


    yeah I have no idea what to put in for the mouse qustions I don't know why in gods name it needs that for video! And I guess i am doing the video options wrong for the 9600pro! I am running all the newest updates xfree86 3.0 and all of that I made sure of that

    yeah, lookslike you need to find the flgrix or wahtever, butthat is a module in the ati-drivers install, try uninstallign and then installing again.

    Here's a how to for ATI:

    http://mirror.ati.com/support/infoba...howto-ati.html

    Maybe that will help. At the very least, you should be able to configure X to use a generic driver if you didn't install over your old ones.

    Hope that helps!

    What happens when you run fglrx from the CLI?
