    Talking Re: Completely garbled X screen on upgrade to Jaunty

    SOLVED - Solution was to:

    a) Do the most thorough removal of fglrx possible, per this Ubuntu wiki:

    https://wiki.ubuntu.com/X/Troublesho...from%20scratch

    b) Remove the line in '/etc/profile' that runs '/etc/ati/ati-flgrx.sh' (it crashes non-failsafe gnome start) ( This may not be necessary for others, as I had a special circumstance with my fglrx uninstallation due to a missed step ).

    The uswsusp issue was unrelated, except that many ATI users may have it when upgrading to Jaunty. Solved that issue with the solution here:

    Glad you got it fixed.
    In your first post you said you were using the vesa driver. Because you said you were using vesa, I never considered the possibility that the fglrx driver may be the cause of the problem.
    So which driver (ati, radeon, or vesa) are you using now?

    Thanks! '/var/log/Xorg.0.log' indicates that the system is loading the xord radeon driver with dri:

    Xorg.conf currently is generic, with a modification to allow use of an external monitor with my laptop and the 'dontzap' for ctrl-alt-backspace restart of 'X' -

    Section "Monitor"
    Identifier "Configured Monitor"
    EndSection

    Section "Screen"
    Identifier "Default Screen"
    Monitor "Configured Monitor"
    Device "Configured Video Device"
    SubSection "Display"
    Virtual 2304 1024
    EndSubSection
    EndSection

    Section "ServerLayout"
    Identifier "Default Layout"
    Screen "Default Screen"
    EndSection

    Section "Device"
    Identifier "Configured Video Device"
    EndSection

    Section "ServerFlags"
    Option "DontZap" "False"
    EndSection
