I just installed BLAG moving over from Fedora 9 to try it out. Everything has gone reasonably well so far. I'm trying to use the free graphics drivers, so I went to system-admin-display-hardware. I think I was running NV as the driver before, whatever it was it definatly had two letters. I tried swiching to Neavu to see what would happen. Now when I boot, I'm unable to load the desktop, can I revert to my old config from the terminal?

Code:
mv /etc/X11/xorg.conf /etc/X11/xorg.conf-foo

you are a champ sir, much appreciated. Now I got Gnome running at native resolution, but the framerate is pretty bad. Most noticibly, running video files in full screen is laggy to an unwatchable degree, is this normal for the driver?

Depends what video out you are using. If it's x11, slow, xv is faster. Example:

Code:
mplayer -vo x11 foo.ogv   <-- slow
mplayer -vo xv foo.ogv   <--faster


Perhaps that will help.
