    xorg.conf HELP Can't Start X


    I was able to make a "xorg.conf" file in "/etc/X11/". But when I "startx" I get the error "No Device section for PCI:1:0:0" Well, I have a Device section with this listed:

    Section "Device"
    Identifier "Card0"
    Driver "ati"
    BoardName "Radeon X800 Pro"
    BusID "PCI:1:0:0"
    Endsection

    What am I doing wrong?

    Syntax and case are important. Endsection should be EndSection.
    OH NOOOOO!!!!!! You did it the way I said?

    I am sorry, I just typed it wrong here, but the file is correct.
    It keeps stating "(EE) No Device Found"

    tried other drivers, such as r128 or vesa.

    Thanks! "vesa" worked once I figured out my mouse configuration needed to be "/dev/input/mice" and that I had to have the "Protocal" set to "auto" not "usb" or "PS/2".

    Now all I have to do is get my Radeon X800 Pro to work. Any Ideas? Thanks!
