I have to say that I had the same problem also installing the driver manually.


When X doesn't start and you're left in tty:
Login as root

Code: Select all

mv /etc/X11/xorg.conf /etc/X11/xorg.conf.bak
reboot

That is correct, I'm afraid.

I tried to install also the generic radeon driver with DDM, and I still have the same problem with xorg. Is it normal?
radeon - open source driver supporting all Radeon cards. This driver has excellent 2D acceleration and compatibility with the Linux graphics stack. 3D acceleration is sufficient for desktop effects and a nice set of native Linux games. Power management is now comparable to the Catalyst driver.

Hi everyone,

I'd like to thank Schoelje for the great work he's done on DDM. This project is no longer a Mint Community one, it's going upstream.

We're using DDM in LMDE itself and I'm sure we'll see DDM used in other Debian based distributions.

To continue to help and follow up on DDM, please visit https://github.com/Schoelje/device-driver-manager
