Tried to remove fglrx, now stuck at a black screen on boot
Ubuntu 11.10 x64, ATI Radeon HD 4770 + Radeon HD 4200:
I followed the instructions here:
After rebooting, I only get a black screen. I have my system set to auto login, but I am not even reaching the desktop. Further, I cannot ctrl-alt-f1 to get to a terminal. Just blackness.
I also tried using the recovery mode from the grub menu. This booted to the menu, but upon loading, the menu freezes and I cannot do anything. The keyboard is unresponsive and I have to cut the power. However, it is not fully frozen, as if I plug in or unplug a USB device, text appears on the screen recognizing that a device is being plugged and unplugged...
Please help me!
Re: Tried to remove fglrx, now stuck at a black screen on boot
Ah! I figured it out. I had to manually remove xorg.conf
I was able to get away from the black screen by editing the grub menu and removing the word "splash" from the kernel line, which allowed me to use ctrl-alt-f1 to reach a terminal...
