    Display Freeze


    When I go: system>preferences>display - the system hangs.

    It was like this originally so I installed the x64 display driver for my ati radeon 4850. It's still freezing when I click the above. Please help.

    lspci | grep -i vga
    01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: ATI Technologies Inc RV770 [Radeon HD 4850]

    Post the contents of /etc/X11/xorg.conf file here.
    It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.
