i hav just finished installing VL,but at the end of auto-configuration of X-Window got some problems
it always shows a dialog named "Error Error" to let me to configure the xorg.conf,when i try to configure the screen.
So i just followed the instrunctions to configure it.But my Videocard(ATI Radeon X1300)can not been found in the list,and i just chose the "ati" drivers with "PCI:1:0:0".so finished the configuration.
But still it doesn't work,everytime when i startx,there is the fatal error of "no screens found"

anyone knows how to solve my promblem?

thanks a lot!!

Boot into VL, choosing "linux-tui" at the lilo prompt. Login as root. Run "vasm", then choose SUPER, XWINDOW, XCONF and reconfigure X, hoping it will pick up the right drivers this time around.

Maybe the propr. driver from Ati itself?
