Curious about FGLRX Problem in Mint 6rc1

Postby Wenches_Master on Sat Nov 15, 2008 2:07 am

Hi Everyone.

I read the release notes on the FGLRX Bug and certain Ati cards.

I've got a Radeon Mobility 1100 Series with 256mb Hyper Memory on my Acer Aspire 5100 Laptop.

I noticed while Installing Mint 6 it was installing the drivers and configuring them.
Thought COOL won't have to do much.

Went into Control Center to activate them as I'd done in Mint 5 "NO GO" it would say dwnld then kick out without activating.
Messed with it for awhile and got desperate for 3D Accl, So I went into synaptic uninstalled all FGLRX related material rebooted, and of coarse gdm couldn't start.
Then I had it reboot into recovery mode, Seleted to fix broken packages.
Then selected try to repair xorg server.

Rebooted came up fine, Then went back into Control Center went to actvate the proprietary drivers, they dwnld as they were suppose to rebooted and they worked like a charm.

Does anybody have any idea why the hard time?
Or is it a Bug?

Either way I got it to work so I really don't care, but was just Curious....

Any ideas would be most interesting to hear.... Thanks.... :roll:

I don't think your card is old enough to be affected by this problem
And never do
went into synaptic uninstalled all FGLRX related material

Way to easy to miss something
You probably shocked the computer :)
