I'm trying to upgrade from 11.10 to 12.04.

I was making the upgrade over the X session of 11.10 i386. I was in the middle of the instalation when the X freezed. So i've made a reboot. When it restarted, i was already in 12.04 version but with the black screen problem. So i've added nomodeset to grub options.

I've runned the commands: sudo apt-get upgrade sudo apt-get dist-upgrade in order to install the missing packages (because of the X freeze). In total the commands installed/upgraded about 1GB more.

But no X yet. So i've uninstalled the fglrx packages and tried to install the amd ati (vendor) package. It give some errors (compilation errors) so i've cleaned it up and reinstalled the fglrx and fglrx-amdcccle ubuntu packages.

CURRENT PROBLEM: No X, yet.

When i run the command:

apt-get install fglrx fglrx-amdcccle

a strange output happens (related to link group i386-linux-gnu_gl_conf):

But it seems to install correctly and compiled all the modules to the current kernel.

runned the commmand: aticonfig --initial -f

After reboot, still no X .

I tried to run the X with no fglrx drivers and with. I spend a lot of time on this problem and i really wonder if i can solve it widthout reinstalling ubuntu from scratch.
