    ATI/fglrx driver hangs X on logout

    I have installed Heron on a lenovo R60 with an ATI Mobility Radeon X1400 (I hate ATI!) and have it running (rendering directly) using the fglrx driver.

    The problem comes when I try to logout (from an X windows session). The machine freezes with a black screen and I need to press the reboot button.

    I've tried enabling and disabling composite mode in the xorg.conf file with no effect. I've tried forcing the X server to restart on logout -also with no effect. I've tried using the kdm & gdm login windows/managers -same result.

    I've tried installing the fglrx drivers using apt-get install and by creating deb packages from the ATI installer script from ati.amd.com -all with the same result.

    I can't even CTRL+ALT+BACKSPACE to start a new session. I can't find any helpful information in Xorg.log.

    If I uninstall the fglrx drivers then I can logout login but the graphics performance is poor.

    Any other suggestions?

    bye

    Any solutions to this problem yet?

    I have the same problem in HP pavillion. It took me a few hours to get fglrx working properly, but now I can't make a clean shutdown.

    right... that's what I did:

    I havent been able to suspend my system for some time, this seems to solve the suspend problem as well.



    and also make sure you have the following in your xorg.conf:

    Section "Extensions"
    Option "Composite" "disable"
    EndSection

    The only thing that fixed the problem was remoavl of atieventsd from the runlevel control directories. I wonder what other impact removal of that daemon...
