Eclipse Android Emulator does not work with ATI proprietory drivers ?
I am on lubuntu 12.10 AMD E.350 processor Sony VAIO VPCY.
I recently switched to ATI proprietary driver as I have occasional screen freeze on boot-up issues as well as HDMI related issues with open source driver.
However, once I moved to fglrx, AVD manager does not bring up the android emulator. There are no errors as such but the phone (emulator) does not come up.
Moment I reverted to open source driver, it comes up without any problem.
Is there something I need to be doing specifically for Android emulator to work with ATI proprietary drivers ?
I am not at all happy with the default open source driver so my preference is not to keep it.

Not sure if others tried/faced this issue as there were no replies...
Meanwhile I could work around this by installing Virtual Box and running latest iso from android x86 forum. Then followed the instructions on this tutorial...
It served the same purpose as emulator and much much faster. Atleast till I hit limitations on some real hardware support under VM, I can use this to try out Android apps...
