I guess you could say GDM comes up, but nothing is clear. Its a very light color and I can only barely make out the input field, and everything else for that matter. I can still log in though by just blindingly putting in the username and password.
On log in, barely anything comes up. There is a 2"x2" sq. where the mouse pointer is. Right click brings up nothing. There is also a 3x3" sq. on the bottom right.
If I try to switch to a VT, the screen blinks (1 sec. intervals) various colors. Switching back, and the "desktop" screen is just as above.
Is there something special I need to add? The xorg.conf is basically generated by "dpkg-reconfigure -phigh xserver-xorg" and then "aticonfig --initial".
With 9.1 I now get an "Unsupported Hardware" message in the lower right of the screen.
This is with a Sapphire 2600HD XT AGP. Now can anyone confirm whether this is a change of behaviour from previous Catalyst releases for Linux or if there's simply something wrong with my install?
I've checked that both /etc/ati/signature and /etc/ati/control match those from the install package.
Should it be the case that all future Catalyst releases will mark this kind of card as such is there a way to disable the logo? After all I really don't need to be continually reminded...
I'm having the same problem, just upgraded to 9.1 from 8.12 and running aticonfig results in "No supported adapters detected". If I copy in my old xorg.conf file, I can start X, but get an "Unsupported hardware" logo in the bottom right corner.
I'm running Ubuntu 8.10 x64 on a Dell XPS with two Radeon HD 3870 x2 cards.
Yep - I've previously managed to get three screens running as individual desktops, but when I enable Xinerama, bad things happen and I loose the 3rd screen (which is on the second card).
I've tried playing around with amdccle which detects both cards, but when I apply changes and restart the machine, either I'm back with 2 screens or the system locks up after gdm starts and I have to press the power button an reboot and change xorg.conf manually.
Things now seem to have now gone worse, with amdccle giving me a "Floating point exception".
Are there any other config files other than xorg.cong which I may need to tinker with?
