I just attempted to install the latest ATI video drivers on my laptop. Upon rebooting the system (including the mouse and keyboard) freezes after the Ubuntu logo. Because the keyboard is frozen I am unable to switch consoles and uninstall the ATI drivers.
I am able to access the computer by booting with an Ubuntu live CD. So I was hoping that from there I could remove the ATI driver by hand but I'm not sure exactly how to go about it. I found a glrx-uninstall.log file from previous successful attempts at uninstalling the driver (older versions) and I would like to think I could just follow that log and remove everything it said it did like
And so on. Will this work or am I likely to further screw up my system? Is there anything the uninstall script installs that I would also need to install?
Alternately is it possible to run the uninstall script while using the Live CD with the HD mounted (can it be told to look in the mounted directory instead of /)?
Edit (as per request below): I initially installed the drivers downloaded from ATI using their installation method.
