hallo carol.. I just got graphire3 and I've been trying to make it work

I noticed that you also run debian testing. Is there a chance that you
could send me your /etc/X11/XF86Config-4 file to have a look? (I'm not
sure actually if the problem lies in the configuration of that file, but
it is the only thing that I can thing of).
