Hi all, I have a Toshiba Satellite running Xubuntu 12.10 x86_64. Yesterday I went to install the fglrx package using APT (without realizing it was a bad idea), rebooted, and the X server didn't want to start up; here's the error log:
Loading extension GLX
(WW) fglrx: No matching Device section for instance (BusID PCI:0@0:1:1) found
Fatal server error:
no screens found
Please consult The X.Org Foundation support
Server terminated with error (1). Closing log file.
xinit: giving up
xinit: unable to connect to X server: Connection refused
xinit: server error
So I then disabled the extension (by running "sudo jockey-text -d kmod:fglrx") and uninstalled it.
After asking on Ask Ubuntu, I was told to install fglrx manually, so I went ahead and tried to install it by following the instructions in this post, however during installation, the installer is unable to build the DKMS module. Here's logs:
Created directory fglrx-install.rUnXwA

Anyone know how I can fix this so I can install fglrx? Thanks!
Check if system has the tools required for installation.
fglrx installation is being forced. Installation will proceed without the required tools on the system.
Uninstalling any previously installed drivers.
