    Help! Not loading blacklisted module fglrx

    Ubuntu 12.04
    I bought a Sapphire Radeon HD7750, downloaded the latest drivers "amd-driver-installer-catalyst-13.3-beta3-linux-x86.x86_64", finally got them compiled and installed with dpkg -i.
    i tried to launch darktable and get this warning

    darktable

    WARNING: Not loading blacklisted module fglrx

    I tried modeprobe fglrx get a warning
    sudo modprobe fglrx
    WARNING: Not loading blacklisted module fglrx
    FATAL: Module fglrx not found.

    I found a fle called fglrx.conf containing
    # This file was installed by fglrx
    # Do not edit this file manually

    blacklist radeon
    alias fglrx fglrx
    alias radeon off
    alias lbm-radeon off
    Where do I go from here?

    I found that the driver was blacklisted in /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist-local.conf. After removing that entry the driver started working.

    hi
    on your join date to linix i see you are not a noob. but if this driver is blacklisted by default - keep your imergency disk by your hand.
    by the side - i run the same system (but differnt hardware ! ) and can't find an entry for the fgrlx driver.
    but there must be a reason for black listing. much fun with gaiming. (sorry for my english - i'm a german)
    ciao
