    ps. do you get this thing with the normal kwin/gnome decorator?



    how do you log in x?! startx or /etc/init.d/xdm? do you per chance have compiled and loaded the drm kernel module (lsmod | grep drm). that should not be the case and should not load with fglrx but you never know...
    ps. does it prevent you from working again normally after that error?
    my xorg.conf:

    Code:

    Under Ubuntu I think you can use the program rcconf
    (or rconf, I don't exactly know how it is called).
    With that, you can add programs (init scripts) to a
    specific runlevel.

    rcconf can only handle initscripts with default runlevels, the same you get when you use

    update-rc.d service defaults

    to disable you can use - even with non standard services

    update-rc.d -f service remove

    That is what I meant.
    (Normal programs you can run via local init service.)

    Under Gentoo you can create your own runlevels (it has
    a more sophisticated system). Does Ubuntu have sth.
    similar or does it still only use the standard 0-6 system?

    Neo4, have you realized that you have 3 ati devices in your xorg.conf?
    it's not really normal...
    now, MAKE A BACKUP OF YOUR ACTUAL xorg.conf to xorg.conf.old for example and use the following new xorg.conf.

    be aware of some thing:

    1. the modes indicated in the modes are for an xga monitor; if you have a wxga 15,4'' (and you're sure about that - all 15,4'' laptop monitors are 1280x800 but you should verify on the producer site) monitor use the commented modes in the section screen instead of the ones you use now by commenting the ones you have now uncommented and uncomment the ones commeted (ie:
    this:
    Modes "1280x960@60" "1280x1024@60" "1024x768@60" "800x600@60" "800x600@56" "640x480@60"
    would become:
    #Modes "1280x960@60" "1280x1024@60" "1024x768@60" "800x600@60" "800x600@56" "640x480@60"
    while this
    #Modes "1280x800" "1280x768" "1024x768" "1280x600" "1024x600" "800x600" "768x576" "640x480"
    would become this:
    Modes "1280x800" "1280x768" "1024x768" "1280x600" "1024x600" "800x600" "768x576" "640x480"
    2. the font paths setting in the section files:
    try to look inside the dirs there indicated and see if you have these fonts, and if they point to the wrong place place them right.

    3. some modules in the module section may fail to load. see that section comment to see how to know about that.

    4. this configration disables xinerama, cloning on the second external monitor and sets an offtime for the monitor of 5minutes. see the server layout section for this. to modify these settings just comment them out or set them as you preffer.

    5. to start atieventsd look into the /etc/init.d/ and see if you have it there, then try it out from a konsole with root priviledges with
    /etc/init.d/atieventsd start
    and if you get it started, then go the configuration center, search for the daemons configuration (i don't know how this is called, but you should see a list of services as acpid, cups, xdm, alsa and similar listed on the base of different levels 3 - terminal login without xorg, 5 - graphical login, 0 - shutdown, 6 - restart). you'll know when you'd have found it because you'll see these services listed there and you'd be asked for a root password to access it in administrator mode.

    6. before using the new xorg.conf logout your user, make a login to the console with "alt+ctrl+f1" and then go back to xlogin with "alt+ctrl+f7". then restart xorg with "ctrl+alt+backspace". if this will turn on your login screen (it should do it since you haven't modified nothing particular) enter your user, get a console and type: cat /var/log/Xorg.0.log | grep EE. if you if you see this followed by something like this:

    (EE) error: ....
    then there is some error. so that you would do:
    cat /var/log/Xorg.0.log >> /home/[your_user]/Desktop [or whatever directory inside /home]/xorg.error.log
    and post it here so we can try to help you. if you cannot see errors, then you config is ok, and you may only be needing some tuning, so that you'd save this new xorg.conf to some safe place, and would not modify it again with ati-config or other utils. when your config is ok, then you'd be modifying it ONLY BY HAND to avoid misconfigurations from graphical tools.

    7. it would be nice if you can communicate us also if this worked well and not only if you've had problems.

    8. the xorg.conf comes in the next post.

    sorry to have done a 3 posts reply but the space is limited...

    Does Ubuntu have sth.
    similar or does it still only use the standard 0-6 system?
    the last i've tried it (6.x version) it had the standard 0-6 modes and they would only be configured by graphical tool. that's one of the part that i most hate of ubuntu/kubuntu:
    there are only some few configs on the disk (wpa_supplicant/xorg.conf) and finding others had driven me mad. that's something that i cannot accept. i need to be able to manage my configs manually and not only by some graphical tool.
    and it's not the only issue:
    1. i've tried cmpiling firefox without gtk+ and with qt only (works flawlessly on gentoo) but i wasn't able to get some qt executable
    2. i've tried compiling the svn version of knetworkmanager but it needed some libs n /usr/lib when the kubuntu ones were in /usr/local/lib and didn't get it to work even after symlinking since i got an error with the soname and with patches for lbidnl. so i've packaged it with portage and installed and it worked like a charm.
    3. i've downloaded, compiled and installed the vanilla kernel, but after reboot i wasn't able to access the system with it. i had to package the rebuilt kernel to a .deb and then install it upgrading the old kernel and the system booted.
    after seeing this horrible thing i've formatted the partition and threw out of the windows the kubuntu dvd and i've swear that that piece of sh** would never get on one of my computers.

    When I tried Debian a few years ago there was a CLI tool to edit the runlevels. I don't know if it was rcconf, but it was there. Since Ubuntu is just a modified Debian system I guess that it was there, too. Maybe you just didn't find it.

    the fonts aren't a real problem and xorg will disable them by default if it cannot find them raising a warning. i've had them there for a long time (about when i was using opensuse) and now i don't have all of them inside (only 2 or 3 of them are still there now). for what i know they are there only to make xorg apps know that they're there and can be used. but maybe kde/gnome find them without xorg passing them.
