Default radeon - How to set up resoluton and frequency?

Hi

I need information how to set up the radeon driver for Ubuntu Studio
Precise (and Quantal RC) amd64.
I've got working xorg.confs for Suse and Arch Linux also 64-bit
installs, but until now I can't get it working properly with Ubuntu
Studio.

https://help.ubuntu.com/community/RadeonDriver does link to Arch
Linux . So as an example I'll attach my working xorg.conf from Arch,
that doesn't work for Ubuntu Studio.

I still continue trial and error, but perhaps somebody can lead into the
right direction.

[spinymouse@archlinux ~]$ cat /etc/X11/xorg.conf

If I don't use a xorg.conf with Ubuntu Studio, the vertical frequency is
at 60Hz and maximal resolution is limited to 1024x768. For Arch and Suse
I get >75Hz, resp. =90Hz and the wanted higher resolution. This doesn't
change if I use my Arch's xorg.con with Ubuntu Studio. After editing
this xorg.conf, Ubuntu Studio didn't start X anymore.

Regards,
Ralf

https://help.ubuntu.com/community/BinaryDriverHowto/ATI is what I have used. Either just the "additonal drivers" gui or the command line. I have an nvidia card where setting the resolution was problematic for me, so I use a custom xorg.conf. I grabbed this config from a knoppix live cd running on the hardware in question and edited a few things.



Is the gui working for you to install the driver? If so, does it generate its own xorg.conf? Have you tried the xorg.conf you are troubleshooting with the vesa driver?
