    I don't use ATI cards, I have always been Nvidia. If I understand you let me take a guess. When I ran Nvidia-Settings in Konsole I had to do it as root in order for it to save when I rebooted. Are you doing this as root?
    Once you install a modem, the government can look into your computer and watch everything you do! That's why every night before I go to bed, I turn the monitor to the wall.

    yup... i did it from root. i can manage to get the catalyst control center up but it seems like that opengl isnt using the ATI drivers, i dont know how to set this up.

    i tried installing the RPM from ati aswell as the automatic configuration. still no luck, maybe its just firefox thats playing up??

    i also wanted like the desktop effects but it keeps saying check my x configuration aswell... soo im stumped really.
