Hi Michel.
I've tried it. Same result. Doesn't work.
My sensation is that X *is* detecting the card. As you can see in the Xorg.log
(right now I've attached one) X is detecting an ATI video card because it tries
first to load the fglrx module. Upon failure (I have no fglrx driver installed
indeed) it then tries to load the ati module and it *loads* it. But when it
comes to setting all the roundabout up it fails: "no device detected"
