I have fresh installed the last Ubuntu version 11.10 in my desktop computer but I have a problem with my Graphic Card RADEON HD6870 at the boot of the O.S.

Hard Disk Interno Western Digital Caviar Green 500GB 3.5" Intellipower 32MB 
Case Midi Cooler Master Centurion 5 II ATX Nero
VGA Club 3d Radeon HD 6870 Core 900MHz Memory GDDR5 4200MHz 1GB 2xDVI HDMI             2xminiDisplayPort

RAM DDR3 Geil Value Plus GVP36GB1333C7TC 1333MHz 6GB (3x2GB) CL7-7-7-24

This is my Ubuntu Version:

Distributor ID: Ubuntu
Description:    Ubuntu 11.10
Release:    11.10
Codename:   oneiric

The problem is after the boot. I can login but I cannot split the screens in three parts.

My Desktop WITHOUT the ATI Drivers and UBUNTU drivers: Desktop view

When I try to set the monitors I get this error:

[ 3130.906415] amdcccle[2548]: segfault at 8 ip 081cf6b8 sp bfcdbb00 error 4 in amdcccle[8048000+5d4000]

ATI Catalyst Configuration: ATI Catalyst config

Xorg.conf Configuration:

Section "Device"
    Identifier  "aticonfig-Device[0]-0"
    Driver      "fglrx"
    Option      "AccelMethod" "EXA"
    Option      "MigrationHeuristic" "greedy"
    Option      "AccelDFS" "true"
    Option      "EnablePageFlip" "true"
    Option      "EnableDepthMoves" "true"
    Option      "ColorTiling"   "on"
    Option      "EXAPixmaps"    "on"
    Option      "RenderAccel"   "on"


Section "Screen"
    Identifier  "Default Screen"
    DefaultDepth    24

Section "Module"
    Load    "glx"

I have solved using these commands:

sudo apt-get remove --purge xorg-driver-fglrx fglrx*
sudo apt-get remove --purge fglrx*
sudo apt-get install --reinstall libgl1-mesa-glx libgl1-mesa-dri
sudo dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg
sudo apt-get install build-essential cdbs fakeroot dh-make debhelper debconf libstdc++6 dkms libqtgui4 wget execstack libelfg0 dh-modaliases
sudo mv /etc/X11/xorg.conf /etc/X11/xorg.conf.old

then I have restarted the pc and the screens are set correct!

I have forgot that when I have started the Ubuntu Live from USB I have set the screens before to install the O.S. on my PC!

It is seems that there is a bug with the driver (segfault). Bugs are off-topic here. So I mark it as close. However it might help to upgrade to a newer version and see if the problem disappeared. Or you can also add a bugreport to Launchpad. –  qbi Feb 28 '13 at 18:57
