    Angry Radeon 9250, 8.11 segfault in Intrepid

    Well, the title says it all. I upgraded from Hardy to Intrepid and suddenly fglrx doesn't work. Following the instructions at everything went fine until I ran aticonfig

    Code:
    bret@Handbuilt-by-Dad:~$ aticonfig --initial -f
    Uninitialised file found, configuring.
    Segmentation fault
    bret@Handbuilt-by-Dad:~$ fglrxinfo
    Xlib:  extension "GLX" missing on display ":0.0".
    Xlib:  extension "GLX" missing on display ":0.0".
    Error: couldn't find RGB GLX visual!
    
    Segmentation fault

    I have studied the xorg.conf explanations and massaged it to:

    Code:
    # xorg.conf (X.Org X Window System server configuration file)
    #
    # This file was generated by failsafeDexconf, using
    # values from the debconf database and some overrides to use vesa mode.
    #
    # You should use dexconf or another such tool for creating a "real" xorg.conf
    # For example:
    #   sudo dpkg-reconfigure -phigh xserver-xorg
    # commented out by update-manager, HAL is now used
    #Section "InputDevice"

    Though I get the funky "can't start" messages and choose low graphics mode, I get good high res display on the Acer after graphics restarts before logon screen. Of course I don't get 3D and my dual head setup isn't talking to the Dell monitor at all.

    Incidentally, in the midst of all my messing with xorg.conf and reloading video drivers, my sound stopped working. Don't see how it might be related but there it is.

    I have been messing about with this on Ubuntu Forums for about a week before it was suggested I try here.

    fglrx hasn't supported the radeon 9250 in a very long time, probably a couple of years now.
