"Hard" freeze when starting AMDCCC 9.3
After upgrading from Catalyst 9.2 to 9.3 I cannot start the Control Center anymore as it freezes my entire system - it requires a hard reboot. I'm running Ubuntu 8.10 on HP 5810p (Mobility HD2600).
After restart I cannot access Gnome anymore until I boot in "safe mode" and invoke "sudo aticonfig --initial -f ".
I have also tried to purge all fglrx* related packages, reinstall the Ubuntu's default repository version and upgrade again; but, the same result.
