Generate a new /etc/X11/xorg.conf file

I believe that the section about making a copy of the old xorg file should be removed, as it seems to me it is making a lot of people getting stuck, not reading the instructions enough attentively
I will remove the section in roughly two weeks if none complains or express anything against it. --Olof nord 22:39, 6 January 2011 (UTC)

I guess that is okay. IIRC, aticonfig will automatically backup the existing xorg.conf. I just didn't want anyone to lose an xorg.conf that they worked hard on. --Dtl131 18:29, 15 January 2011 (UTC)

The section is now removed

Perhaps somewhere better to post this, but: found it nice to have a text version on my HD so I could do the install from term.

Posted it here (1 month to delete)

if one would like to host it here. Lynx is of course another viable alternative.

wrong link / file

The document says to get the driver (manual install) from but the actual URL is The file is (starts with amd, not ati). This is seen in other places on this document.

Link not working

The link says I am forbidden to view the contents, even if I register. Would be very interesting to test this PPA and VLC.
