How do I configure X to use ATI Radeon drivers?

ATI Radeon cards 8500,9000,9200 and 9250 work with Open Source drivers and support ['OpenGL'] 3D Graphics.

To configure X to use the Radeon drivers, the configuration file /etc/X11/XF86Config-4 should be edited as follows:

  • Section "Device"
    • Identifier "ATI Radeon 9000" Driver "radeon"

    ?EndSection Section "Screen"

    • Device "ATI Radeon 9000"

Note: The installation process may have set the driver type to "ati". This needs to be changed to "radeon".
