    Default ati command when installing ATI.lzm

    Copy the ati.lzm module to your directory root ("cd /") then "tar -zxvf ati.lzm" - then run the .sh file that is placed in the newly created /install directory by typing "sh install/doinst.sh". After that you should be able to load up X by using the ati command which will configure /etc/X11/xorg.conf to work properly so you can then after use your preferred method to run X.

    Should something happen when I type "sh install/doinst.sh" after typing "tar -zxvf ati.lzm". Additionally, what does the instructions mean by using the ati command. What is the ati command?

    Thanks

    Default

    the command you refer to is "aticonfig"

    if you type this without the quotes you will see example set up commands such as --

    aticonfig --initial --input=/etc/X11/xorg.conf

    For me to get my display right on my Dell Vostro 1000 laptop i had to issue this command and also

    aticonfig --resolution=1280,1024

    once done i was able to run startx then into KDE
    Modded grub to remove the xconf part boots strait in every time
