[SOLVED] Is sudo aticonfig --initial still necessary?

Just did a fresh install of Waldorf along with Catalyst 12.10 but this time I didn't sudo aticonfig --initial like I normally do and nothing seems different. I have amdcccle and the fan sounds like it usually does after installing the proprietary graphics driver.

Is it still necessary to make that step or have ATI simplified the installation of their drivers? Or am I going to be hit on the head by some nasty surprise later on?

fglrxinfo gives:

display: :0.0  screen: 0
OpenGL vendor string: Advanced Micro Devices, Inc.
OpenGL renderer string: ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5400 Series
OpenGL version string: 4.2.11931 Compatibility Profile Context

However, there is no fglrx file in X11.

Re: [SOLVED] Is sudo aticonfig --initial still necessary?

xorg.conf has the following:

Section "Device"
        Identifier  "aticonfig-Device[0]-0"
        Driver      "fglrx"
        BusID       "PCI:1:0:0"
EndSection

Looks like it's all fine then.
