Thanks for your help. So far I have the ati driver install (rigo says it is installed) the output from eselect is:
bash: eval: line 24: syntax error near unexpected token `newline'
bash: eval: line 24: `Usage: lesspipe <file>'[email protected]
~ $ eselect opengl list
Available OpenGL implementations:
 ati *

I ran aticonfig without any commands as user. When I try and run ati catalyst control center it gives me any error messages that the ati ddrivers are not installed or configuered for use.
When I run aticonfig as su with no parameters is states that aticonfig command is not found.
Any further help would be appriciated.
