View Full Version : [ubuntu] Ubuntu 10.10 fglrx constantly crashing

December 1st, 2010, 10:58 PM

I have a multi-monitor setup running two ati radeon 4870 cards.

After upgrading to 10.10 from 10.04 fglrx is constantly crashing. It works with some applications such as the browsers Chrome, Firefox and other applications such as Nautilus but if I try to view YouTube or even open another application I use often keepassx it will crash to a terminal screen.

Ubuntu 10.10 is very unusable in this current state, is there a way I can easily revert to 10.04? I have tried the Ubuntu provided driver after fully purging fglrx as well as the one provided by ATI and to no luck.:confused:


One more thing, I'm running in xinerama mode

As an update it looks like I'm not able to reproduce this problem when not running xinerma.

Although this is less sucky it is still pretty aggravating not to be able to use xinerma
