    Default How to uninstall radeonhd? [Ubuntu Gutsy]

    Hi, people. Today I've realised that it released a new propietary ati driver version. After I've installed the driver and changed driver name "radeonhd" by "fglrx", I rebooted the system. The result has been a wonderful black screen. ^^

    Well, I've taken a look to Xorg.0.log file and this is a part of its content:

    Code:
    (II) RADEONHD: version 1.1.0, built from git branch master, commit f213db06
    
    (II) Primary Device is: PCI 01:00:0
    (--) Assigning device section with no busID to primary device
    (WW) RADEONHD: No matching Device section for instance (BusID PCI:1:0:1) found
    (--) Chipset RV530 found

    It seems that ubuntu loads radeonhd and I don't understand the reason because I've put as driver fglrx and not radeonhd.

    May be, it resolves the problem uninstalling radeonhd or disabling the radeonhd driver. But, how does it do?

    Here it is my xorg.conf:
    http://www.gigasize.com/get.php?d=rv61mkzznvf

    And here the complete Xorg.0.log:
    http://www.gigasize.com/get.php?d=v76sgzbkxgf

    Thanks in advance!!

    Regards!

    Your xorg.conf still tells the kernel to load the radeonhd driver.

    <snip>
    Code:
    Section "Device"
    	Identifier  "aticonfig-Device[0]"
    	Driver      "radeonhd"
    EndSection
    <cut>

    Change "radeonhd" into "fglrx" where it says that and try again.
    (My own HD2600XT still ends in a black screen when trying to load fglrx so with your card, your results may vary).

    Sorry, yesterday I mistook uploading the xorg.conf file. The problem is when I change radeonhd by fglrx, it happens the black screen issue that I mentioned before.

    I'll upload the file again to avoid more confusions.

    EDIT: xorg.conf file uploaded.

    Try

    Code:
    $ mv /usr/lib/xorg/modules/drivers/radeonhd_drv.so /usr/lib/xorg/modules/drivers/radeonhd_drv.so.OLD

    Great! Thanks for your help! Now it loads fglrx module . However I still have the black screen problem. I have been looking the Xorg.0.log file and, at the beginning, it seems all normal but, suddenly, it stops loading data. I don't know how to explain it. May be it is better that you look Xorg.0.log file.

    Xorg.0.log:

    The xorg.conf is the same. I've only changed the driver name that now is fglrx.

    Regards!

    And here is the xorg.conf file:

    During installation, I've noticed that the program was creating an edgy package for the fglrx driver installation and I have gutsy. I don't know if it's important but I tell you this piece of information in case you need it.

    That's not important. I would suggest to use

    -v 8.39.4

    as option to my script to force the driver, which is the last driver with "old" codebase without Google Earth problems. AIGLX would not work with Xserver 1.4 anyway and you don't have got that stupid issue that any other "first" 3d app expect glxgears would hang. Of course you can force any newer driver too with that option (but not lower due to kernel 2.6.24).

    Really? So, if I put "-v 8.42", it will force to install fglrx 8.42, isn't it? The 8.42 version worked very well in my system.

    Well 8.42 is too short, you can use: 8.443.1, 7-11, 8.42.3, 8.41.7, 8.40.4 and 8.39.4 as option currently for kernel 2.6.24 based systems.
