I don’t have my machine in front of me right now (it’s at home and I’m at work) but the ATI install failed the three times I tried it complaining about an issue with the file needing to be fixed . I am assuming the file is xorg.conf as it didn’t say. I was able to download the latest 10.6 driver from AMD and install that no problems so I am OK just posting this in case others see the same thing. My card is a Mobility HD 4200. Overall Kanotix 2010 is working very well. I have a few small issues I will post elsewhere in the forums let me just say thanks for having a KDE 3.5 version many people out there myself included still prefer it as our desktop of choice.

The script downloads 10-6 when you use update-scripts-kanotix.sh - i would NEVER call the installer manually.

If I have time I'll reinstall and see if I can duplicate it and get the exact error.
