How to disable hotplug for ATI fglrx?
« on: August 21, 2006, 11:16:05 pm »
I realise everybody must be busy creating this great project but I'm shamelessly asking my question in a different way, hoping I may arouse someone's interest.

Hot-plug correctly identifies my Media Director has an ATI card and configures it accordingly.  Unfortunately the proprietary ATI driver does not support DRI on my ATI card where as the open source one does.  Any attempt to convince the system to let me use the open source driver gets overwritten by the new fancy hot-plug.

Does anyone know how I can turn it off or defeat it in this regard?  All I need is a nudge in the right direction and I should be able to work it out.

Aha, just found this in Config_Device_Changes.sh

        # Add proprietary video card Device and drivers if needed
        # TODO: allow user to express his/her will in using the open source driver if he/she so desires

OK, no problem.  It's a todo

Looks like I just need to comment the line that says

                radeon|ati) PackageIsInstalled fglrx-driver && VideoDriver="fglrx" ;;

from Utils.sh
