View Full Version : [ubuntu] fglrx installation on new 10.04 -> segfault

May 26th, 2010, 07:08 PM

I have a new ubuntu 10.04 amd64 installation (kernel 2.6.32-22) with a Mobility Radeon HD 3650. I tried to install the fglrx drivers from ati via the Software-Center and via apt-get. After installation, when starting the ATI CCC the following error message (sorry in german) appears:

"Beim Initialisieren der Catalyst Control Center Linux-Version ist ein Problem aufgetreten. Mögliche Gründe dafür sind:
Es ist kein ATI-Grafiktreiber installiert oder der ATI-Treiber funktioniert nicht ordnungsgemäß.
Bitte installieren Sie den richtigen Treiber für Ihre ATI-Hardware oder verwenden Sie den Befehl aticonfig."

Translation: Driver is either not correctly installed or it does not work properly.

If I try to execute fglrxinfo in the console I get a "segmentation fault".
I think I do not have to say that the driver does not work. I have removed and reinstalled the driver several times.

Anybody encountered something similar or knows how to deal with this?

Looks like the driver is not being used at all. The automated installation sometimes doesn't creates an xorg.conf file, no idea why, so X keeps on using the xorg drivers.

You can check which driver are you running executing this from a terminal inside X:

perl -n0077 -e 'print "Using driver $1 v$3 by $2.\n" while /Module (radeon|fglrx|intel|nvidia|nv|vesa): vendor="([^"]+)"\n.*version = (\S+)/img;' /var/log/Xorg.${DISPLAY:1:1}.log

If the result is not fglrx, try
sudo aticonfig --initial to create a basic xorg.conf, and restart X.
