View Full Version : [ubuntu] Radeon 9800Pro Won't configure

November 27th, 2008, 10:44 PM
I managed to get as far as installing ati's drivers and catalyst, the install walkthrough then said log in through su and run /usr/X11R6/bin/aticonfig --initial to finish setup and restart.
heres the output.
omega@OmegaMachine:~$ su
root@OmegaMachine:/home/omega# /usr/X11R6/bin/aticonfig --initial
Uninitialised file found, configuring.
Segmentation fault

So in further exploring I find out that a segfault is an error directly resulting in a denial of access to files to be read or written or whatever, look I'm an ubuntu Noob and got this far, can someone please explain why it won't configure or tell me what I'm doing wrong?
