    I finally decided to try the 9.12 hotfix release on my 64-bit Ubuntu 9.10 installation with an HD4870. Building the deb-files went just fine, and so did installing them. But when I start X my two monitors (connected via DVI) goes to sleep. "Hmmmm. Funny." I thought, so I tried the real 9.12 release; the same thing.

    Going back to 9.11 solved the problem.

    Has anyone else seen this problem? I tried searching ati.cchtml.com but it hasn't been updated with new versions of Catalyst since 9.7.

    Have you tried removing /etc/ati/amdpcsdb?

    I just tried it, and guess what? It worked. Thanks.

    Going from earlier 9.x, I've never had to do that before. Very strange.

    Actually it's a very common problem. Linux-only of course

    Did you uninstall the previous fglrx driver before installing the new one ?

    Files in /etc are usually not removed when uninstalling stuff so that settings don't get lost. And that's a good thing; imagine what would happen if you had to redo all settings of all software you upgrade. Welcome to hell.

    What's not a good thing, however, is fglrx chocking on the /etc/ati stuff of previous versions, for no apparent reason. Yeah I know, you'll say "did you report it in the bug tracker", but you know my answer so lets not derail another thread

    Well, basically what RealNC said.

    But just to clarify; I let my package manager handle the installation and uninstallation by simply running "dpkg -i *.deb" in the directory where I built the deb packages. This has worked fine before, and as far as I can remember this was the first time I had to meddle in /etc/ati/ after upgrading the driver.

    "dpkg -P" will purge the configuration files, but because amdpcsdb isn't part of the package it isn't removed (dpkg -P does give a warning about this though)
