That post pointed to this wiki:You mentioned having tried with -fglrx; there is a known issue where leftover bits of fglrx can interfere with -ati and cause it to fail, with symptoms not unlike what's described in this bug report.

I've just uploaded the new 6.12.0 -ati to jaunty, which should fix this issue. Please test and verify.
@Bryce: I can confirm it's working. "Ubuntu jaunty (development branch), 2.6.28-11-generic, 20090319" with default ATI driver and the "white screen of death" is gone. Will now try the closed prop. driver.
Have tried this? Sorry I'm getting to the too tired to think point, so I'll have to leave this. Maybe someone in a different time-zone will take this up ....I have the same problem with that configuration : ATI HD3650, intreprid ibex
I tried all drivers that exist (catalyst 8.10, 8.11, 8.12) and always the same problem, when GDM should appers, the screen stay black. I noticed that after usplash, the screen turn off (at the moment of showing GDM).
I switch to TTY1 console with crtl+alt+F1, login, and enter "exit", then the screen turn on and I can see the GDM screen, log in and everything is working properly (X server, compiz fusion, ..) I have tried to change the xorg.conf with a lot of option in all section, but nothing solved my problem
