    Hardy keeps reverting to login screen.

    Well, i decided to trash the fglrx driver from my previous hardy install, so i reinstalled hardy.


    But now,(with the open-source drivers) running glxgears makes it flicker horribly, and revert to the login screen.
    This happened while i was running armagetron advanced too.

    I have an ATI RADEON X800XL AGP.

    You can log out and choose "Failsafe terminal" from the sessions menu. From there, it's possible to remove the opensource driver and reinstall the fglrx driver.
