    Question RadeonHD 3650 AGP on Arch Linux

    ---n00b help hotline!---

    Hello! I just finished installing and (somewhat) configuring the latest batch of Arch Linux on a primary partition.

    Trouble is, both KDE 4.2 and XFCE 4.6 are slower than frozen molasses at rendering anything, so I know my xorg.conf needs tweaking

    I used "Xorg -configure" as root to generate a sample xorg.conf file after installing X, and this is what it produced:

    Section "ServerLayout"
    Identifier "X.org Configured"
    Screen 0 "Screen0" 0 0
    InputDevice "Mouse0" "CorePointer"
    InputDevice "Keyboard0" "CoreKeyboard"

    There are a lot of options under the "Device" section! Basically, all I'm interested in is full-speed EXA and Xv acceleration and decent powersaving. What would be my best course of action?

    I'm running Arch Linux with AMD64 kernel 2.6.30, xorg 1.6.2 RC1, and xf86-video-ati 6.12.2-2

    EDIT: If needed, here's a pastebin of my most recent Xorg.0.log: http://pastebin.com/f22ffef7b
