    Re: 10.04 broke my fglrx, how do I fix

    ++Mr. Shark
    Younio: I had the same issue. I got around it by manually removing the references(actually quite easy). Follow the instructions here: http://caulfield.info/emmet/technology/linux/ubuntu/

    That got me to being able to uninstall my 9.10 driver. I then followed what mr.shark had to say along with doing
    aticonfig --initial -f

    However, I still can't get the following to work:
    multi gpu support--all my displays go into power savings and i have to hard reboot whenever i try.(i have two 4670's and 3 displays)
    xenerama--i get the glitchy behavior ask@refcapgroup.com reported.
    big desktop--not sure how best to describe the failure conditions here--windows/desktops just don't work right--menus and windows aren't rendered on screen, etc--ended up hard rebooting and starting a fresh config to get out of it.

    Anyone else had any luck with xenerama or multi gpus?

    I went back to Ubuntu 9.10. Did a fresh install of 9.10. Multi GPU worked out of the box. Didn't need to do anything other than download catalyst from ati and then issue
    aticonfig --intial=dual-head --adapter=all.
    All monitors working with Xinerama. This localizes the problem squarely on Ubuntu 10.04

    Thanks But i thought it would be quicker to do a fresh install, so i downloaded the 10.04 and installed it "on top of" my old one Of course, i lost my installed packages, but I installed them again, and all my settings, were saved too. And everything is working excellent.

    i did this
    https://help.ubuntu.com/community/BinaryDriverHowto/ATI

    (changing this
    Code:
    sudo sh ./ati-driver-installer-9-12-x86.x86_64.run --buildpkg Ubuntu/karmic
    to this
    Code:
    sudo sh ./ati-driver-installer-10-4-x86.x86_64.run --buildpkg Ubuntu/lucid
    )
    and it worked!
    Code:
    fakedrake@fakedrake-laptop:~$ fglrxinfo

    Re: 10.04 broke my fglrx, how do I fix

    Hello...

    i installed Lucid (10.04) just a while ago and am facing similar problems to those faced by people on this thread. I tried doing various methods to get my ATI graphics working, but all have failed. I followed the steps explained by MrStark and Obamabuntu in vain.

    can anybody help me out? I started using Linux recently and have started liking it (when i was still on 9.04, Flawless). i hope i can get this problem fixed so i dont have to shift back to windows.

    Re: 10.04 broke my fglrx, how do I fix

    Chalk me up as another who is pulling his hair out over fglrx in Lucid.

    It all started with error during the upgrade; "E: /var/cache/apt/archives/fglrx_2:8.723.1-0ubuntu3_i386.deb". The end result was no fglrx by the end of the install. I managed to fix it by deleting the deb file, purging the failed fglrx install, and reinstalling it. It's now loaded, and I have my dual-monitors working in extended desktop mode. However, performance is woeful. Moving windows is laggy and it's generally a bit unresponsive. mplayer gives a 'xv mode unsupported' error and gives about 1fps. OpenGL stuff just doesn't work. In my xorg log file, I've tracked down a particular error:

    Loading /usr/lib/xorg/extra-modules/modules/linux/libfglrxdrm.so

    I'm not the only one to have come across this:
    http://ohioloco.ubuntuforums.org/sho...69#post9263369.

    I've tried to completely purge everything and reinstall it, but to no avail. Does anyone have any ideas?

    I am in a similar situation. I have attempted the following methods to fix/install/otherwise troubleshoot fglrx:

    https://wiki.ubuntu.com/X/Troublesho...thRadeonDriver
    https://help.ubuntu.com/community/BinaryDriverHowto/ATI (changing the appropriate file)
    https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+s...er/+bug/565407 (I have tried renaming the folder and also deleting the folder - currently the .../ati folder is deleted
    http://swiss.ubuntuforums.org/showth...1450040&page=3
    http://ubuntuforums.org/archive/inde...t-1308009.html


    When I enter sudo apt-get install fglrx into the command line, I have the following result:

    $ sudo apt-get install fglrx

    I'm really unsure what else to do, and would appreciate any help.

    Re: 10.04 broke my fglrx, how do I fix

    I believe I solved that error by deleting the cached deb file, forcing it to download the correct version.
    ie rm /var/cache/apt/archives/fglrx_2%3a8.723.1-0ubuntu3_amd64.deb

    This is one of the fixes I have tried, and I receive the same error as my initial post. Update Manager came in with an update to fglrx, but it is also not cleanly installing at all. The "fglrx-amdcccle" file is broken in synaptic and is halting the whole process. I've marked it for complete removal and completely restarted the process a number of times, and I'm still receiving the same error.
