Cant get the radeon driver to work at all on Kubuntu 8.10
Hello, i just installed a fresh Kubuntu distro on ly laptop, and neither the installer nor the actual X server are able to get my GPU to work properly, my card is a:
01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: ATI Technologies Inc M9+ 5C61 [Radeon Mobility 9200 (AGP)] (rev 01)
Currently i can only log in with the generic 'vesa' driver with a meager 800x600 resolution; when i just try to change the driver in my xorg.conf file and start up the X server all i get is a black screen that wont even allow me to fall back to a console and i must hard boot, so no way of cheching the logs either.
Im thinking maybe this is a problem with the default Ubuntu Kernel? I had this working just fine on my in-house compiled vanilla kernel before a crash forced me to format.
Trying to update to the PPA's xorg video drivers has not helped either.
Any help will be appreciated
