[SOLVED] ati install problems
ATI is dumb...
I installed the drivers (just like they told me)
I ran fglrxconfig (just like they told me)
My PC restarted and started using 1280x1024 (just like they told me)
BUT MY PC IS STILL USING THE FREAKING MESA DRIVERS!!!
Does anyone know how to resolve this problem?

Do you have the kernel sources, I have that problem on any distro if I don't.Nothing is worse than ten penguins fighting over which is better, vi or emacs.

Every program under linux (every 'open source' program) has its sources available. The same goes for the kernel. Sources are useful if you want to build your own version of the program. For installing an ATi or nVidia driver, you need those sources. So check which kernel you are using by opening a terminal and typing the following command:
It should give you something like 126.96.36.199 for example. That's your kernel version. Then, go on the web, check the repositories for your distribution, and download the matching kernel sources. Install them (your distro's installer will put them in /usr/src). Then reinstall the ATi driver and try again.** Registered Linux User # 393717 and proud of it ** Check out www.zenwalk.org
