I just recently installed Fedora Core 8 onto my Fujitu E-series computer with a ATI Radeon Mobility X1400 graphics card. I am having trouble activating the advanced graphics settings. Does anyone have any suggestions for me? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Might post current /etc/X11/xorg.conf file but you can use the search tool here and use the search string ' ati xorg direct rendering ' and getting examples of xorg setup for items I think you are refering too.

It is using the vesa driver.
Driver "vesa"

You need to install the linux ati drivers. Many post on how to if not sure but you you download the ati driver package.
Then where you saved it you need to open a command prompt and issue a few commands.
' su ' command first then root's pasword.
' chmod +x ' name_of_ati_driver_file.
' ./name_of_ati_driver_file ' This executes the program.
Next make a backup of current xorg.conf file so if something goes wrong you can restore the orginal and get X server back up and running quickly.
Now I would select build an rpm for your system. It will generate an rpm file which you will then install with the following command. ' rpm -ivh name_of_rpm_file.rpm '

Again many post on fglrx ati driver if unsure of everything I said. I would read the install docs and search this site for more info to get a better understanding if I am not very clear or basic enough to understand.
