Description of problem:
After installing the new kernel with up2date, I rebooted the machine. The X
server failed to start, and gave me the error messages about agpgart and fglrx
modules failing to load.
If I go back to the previous kernel on boot (using grub), which is kernel
2.4.20-19.9, everything works OK.
Under the new kernel, I can get the x server working with the default
configuration tool which automatically probes my hardware. The problem is, it
doesn't detect that I have two monitors. I end up with the second monitor
looking like a clone of the first one, rather than having the two act as one
I tried rebuilding the XF86Config-4 file using the fglrxconfig tool that comes
with the ATI Fire GL 8800 driver, but when I re-boot, I get the same error.
