Re: X not working after upgrading

@killer de bug: you are right: what i meant is that with the new kernel the only way to have a X running was to delete the xorg.conf, using the default vesa modes .. but no way to have fglrx drivers working... @kurotsugi: yes, i'm running LMDE (everything as in my signature) actually, i didn't check...
