    Failed to load module "fglrx"

    I've been using Jaunty since it came out and I also have an older ATI that isn't supported under the new X. The other day I installed the suggested updates from the Update Manager and now whenever I try and boot up ubuntu I receive this message in a text box:

    (EE) Failed to load module "fglrx" (module does not exist, 0)
    (EE) No drivers available

    There was a button to review the log so I took a look and saw that I'm running X.Org X Server and that was about all I made of that. If anyone has any advice on how to get my machine working again I'd greatly appreciate it.

    I know this is an old thread, but why make a new one if there's already one here with the problem unsolved.

    I also have this problem after installing the latest ATI Catalyst Driver for my ATI HD 4850 from AMD's website and then removing it, following these instructions:

    1. Launch the Terminal Application/Window and navigate to the /usr/share/ati folder.

    2. With superuser permissions, enter the command "sh ./".

    3. Reboot your system.

    to activate the fglrx one from System->Administration->Hardware Drivers... because i thought this might solve my problem i was having with Runescape (a java-based game) that I can't get into High Detail.

    Some other details you might want to know.. I'm using 64bit Jaunty Jackelope and 64bit Google Chrome (not the chromium-browser); the actual google-chrome created for Linux users.

    If you can help me solve both my problems that'd be fantastic!
