also i dont understand your first sentence where you say 'x wont boot with xorg.0.log' . it makes no sense. that is a log file, obviously. so maybe you can elaborate a little bit?
sorry it was going to read "with Xorg.0.log reporting ..." then the last few lines of the log file, but I discovered that the log file had been eaten by starting X twice with the radeon driver and then i forgot to fix the post. Basically X will not go at all and returns to the VT1 screen with root logged in (this is on the live dvd).
When i run the radeon driver I do not get the option to use AIGLX or XGL, just the "no desktop acceleration" option. Which is OK'ish but puzzling and annoying.
How do I set radeon to do DRI? I get so confused with all this X driver stuff between the different cards and how to config them. Give me an nVidia card any day, but the choice isn't always there with a lappie.
