Minor updates to "Method 1"
I think that the "Method 1" documentation could use a few small tweaks; I wanted to propose them here for discussion before making any changes to the documentation itself. If I don't hear anything back by 2009-02-01, I'll go ahead and make the changes to the main document.
In my version of Debian (testing), the description for the
fglrx-kernel-src package says that it "is a dummy package". All I needed to do was install the
fglrx-driver package, and it pulled in the dependencies
module-assistant, so I think the "Install the driver" command set should be simplified to:
sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install fglrx-driver
Then, the first command under "build and install the module" should be:
sudo module-assistant auto-install fglrx-source
The last sentence should read as follows:
This will backup your original
xorg.conf and then modify it to use the new driver. You need to restart your X server (or your computer) for the changes to take effect.
I also have a few minor corrections to the "Method 1" section. We should remove the "#:" from the beginning of commands. The section heading "build and install the module" should be changed to "Build and install the module".
