    Unhappy

    I tried one more time with FGLRX :

    1/ Removed radeon driver (sudo apt-get remove --purge (...)-ati (...)-radeon)
    2/ Installed Catalyst 10.5 with ati installer script
    3/ Deleted xorg.conf (after backup)
    4/ Ran : sudo aticonfig -f --initial=dual-head --adapter=all
    5/ Modified my kdmrc file disabling multiseat mode back to single "normal" mode (launching a single Xorg without any "exotic" parameter)
    6/ Restart
    ...
    7/ Same system crash :-(

    Empty Xorg.log file !

    I've found this in the kern.log file :

    Maybe something about a kms / fbcon conflict ?

    Yep. Not sure why, but you've still got the open source drm running.

    You don't need to remove the open source driver btw; the fglrx install and subsequent aticonfig will update xorg.conf to use the fglrx x driver.

    Normally the install operation blacklists the open source radeon drm driver to avoid the conflict you are seeing.

    When you say "restart" are you just talking about X or did you actually reboot the entire machine?

    Better use:
    Code:
    sudo rm -f /etc/X11/xorg.conf*
    wget -N http://kanotix.com/files/install-fglrx-debian.sh
    DISPLAY= sudo sh install-fglrx-debian.sh -z
    sudo reboot

    I've just red this on : http://wiki.debian.org/fr/ATIProprietary

    # modprobe -r radeon drm

    # modprobe fglrx

    # echo fglrx >> /etc/modules

    Is "radeondrmfb" the ati proprietary framebuffer to use instead of open source "drm" ?

    My script is the correct way. You NEVER load fglrx in the modules file as this module is loaded on X start. The one who wrote this must be on drugs.
