Easily switching from fglrx to radeon and back

Sections:

Once you have installed and set up the graphics card with the fglrx and the radeon driver (including multi-monitor setups), it's helpful to make the switch from one setup to another rather easy.

Basically, switching involves exchanging the xorg.conf file and the GL library file. But since the drivers are different in other respects too (suspend/resume, 3D acceleration), it's also convenient to change configuration files
at the same time, for example the xscreensaver configuration file to run different screensavers (radeon: no 3D; fglrx: all the 3D you can find ;)) or the hibernate.conf file for suspending the ThinkPad.

The attached radeonswitch script does exactly that.

Using the Graphics Card with the X.org radeon driver

Sections:

Configuration

You can create new configuration files suitable for the radeon driver with the text-based xorgconfig tool or run

X -configure

to let X.org probe your hardware and write a configuration file, alternatively you can also use the graphic application xorgcfg to change configuration parameters. Better backup /etc/X11/xorg.conf before using either of these utilities.

Using the Graphics Card with the ATI fglrx driver

Configuration

You can create new configuration files suitable for the fglrx driver with the fglrxconfig tool, alternatively you can also use aticonfig to change configuration parameters. Better backup /etc/X11/xorg.conf before using either of the two utilities.
