fglrx problem, or i think

Postby pavlovic on Tue Aug 13, 2013 11:09 am

Hi,
i have just installed lmde 32bit cinnamon (201303), and since default kernel (486 i think) doesnt support dual core, i installed liquorix 686 kernel through synaptic. everything worked fine till i installed ati fglrx drive through device driver manager. then i rebooted, so the new drive would take effect, but now it wont start. all i get is blank msdos like screen, though upper third of screen is reddish. help asap :cry:
thanks in advance
PS im rather new to linux, so sorry for mistakes
PSS oh, my graphic card is radeon 5450
