I am using a Toshiba Satellite notebook with Xubuntu 12.10 x86_64. Just now, I installed the
fglrx package to be able to use the propriety drivers for my graphics card. However, once I rebooted after installing the package, Xubuntu fails to load.
The loading screen (Xubuntu logo; left-right moving bar) appears for a few seconds before the screen turns black and a log of a bunch of daemons starting appears. I press ALT + F4 to log in to a terminal, but when I try starting Xubuntu by running
startx, I get this error at the end:
... Loading extension GLX (WW) fglrx: No matching Device section for instance (BusID PCI:0@0:1:1) found SetVBEMode failed Fatal server error: no screens found (EE) Please consult The X.Org Foundation support at http://wiki.x.org for help. Server terminated with error (1). Closing log file. xinit: giving up xinit: unable to connect to X server: Connection refused xinit: server error
I am stumped and I don't know what to do to solve this issue, and still be able to use the proprietary drivers.
If it helps, I found this:
$ sudo aticonfig --list-adapters * 0.00:01.0 AMD Radeon HD 7310 Graphics
Can anyone help me solve the issue? Thanks.
Edit: Here is my
Edit2: I can manage to start X without the driver by disabling it (
sudo jockey-text -d kmod:fglrx) but I still want to solve the issue and be able to use the proprietary drivers.
