View Full Version : Reset xorg.conf
12th January 2009, 02:00 AM
Something messed up my xorg.conf, so I thought in F10 you could simply delete it. I did that but X still would not start:
Fatal server error:
no screens found
but I get "AttributeError: 'NoneType' object has no attribute 'device'. Then I tried
but I get "Couldn't start X server on card 0. Error, failed to start X server".
What's the next step?

I had that when I installed fc10. I have an nvidia card and I had to install the nvidia driver (from the livna repository) before I could use X. Is that maybe your problem?

I have an IBM T43p laptop. I think it is an ATI card. I tried following the instructions on this forum for installing those drivers, but that's what seemed to break it.

Please start your terminal and type:
lspci | grep VGA
If you search for ATI on this forum, you see the pattern, ATI dropped the ball. Nvidia is the way to go for now until AMD/ATI wakes up. I believe AMD bought out ATI.

Here is the output:
[doriad@davedesktop ~]$ lspci | grep VGA
01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: ATI Technologies Inc M24GL [Mobility FireGL V3200] (rev 80)
Anyone know how to install drivers for that?

this is the link to ati website
Is thaat your card?
It gets you directly to the 32bit driver version http://ati.amd.com/support/driver.html
32 bit fedora select linux X86 and then fireGL then 3200
64 bit fedora select linux X86_64 then fireGL then 3200
ask around if this will work or not
