Uninstalling ATI drivers

Is there a way to uninstall the ATI proprietary drivers?  After installing them it seems I'm having problems with X.  I'm running kernel 2.6.15.1 (custom).

Re: Uninstalling ATI drivers

There is a really nice package called ati-drivers-arch in community.
Install it following these simple steps:
1.  "pacman -S qpkg"
2.  "qpkg -p ati-drivers-arch"
3.  If necessary, adjust the _kernel var in the PKGBUILD
     (default is the newest stock Arch Linux kernel26)

If you are running kernel26archck, simply use the following:
  "pacman -S ati-drivers"

If the driver still doesn't work flawlessly you can deinstall it using the following command:
  "pacman -R ati-drivers-arch
