problem installing AMD proprietary video driver on Slackware64-14.0
My home laptop is a Dell Inspiron 15R with the hybrid video card AMD Radeon HD 7730M.
Last night I installed Slackware64-14.0 (stable) and dropline gnome - which doesn't runs / installs on -current. (BTW, kudos for the great work!)
Then I followed http://docs.slackware.com/howtos:har...aphics_drivers's "AMD (ATI) Catalyst Driver Installation and Configuration" section to the letter.
The driver I got is "amd-driver-installer-catalyst-13.1-linux-x86.x86_64.zip".
I blacklisted on /etc/modprobe.d/radeon_blacklist.conf both radeon and radeonhd.
After rebooting into runlevel 3 I ran:
But when I try to
# aticonfig --initial -f
I get a segmentation fault at address 0x38 and X gives up. I've posted the /var/log/Xorg.0.log file here.
What am I missing here?
Thanks in advance,
