I have a HD 7850 GPU and I'm running Mint 17. I used fglrx with success in the past, but I don't know what happened, I can't use it anymore.
I can still select it in the specific drivers window, but when I reboot, after login, I have a message saying "Cinnamon has crashed. Would you like to use the safe mode ?" (it's a translation, English message could be a bit different). The message continues to be shown until I press "No".
I tried anyway to do
Code: Select all
$ glxinfo | grep Rendering
X Error of failed request: BadRequest (invalid request code or no such operation)
Major opcode of failed request: 157 (ATIFGLEXTENSION)
Minor opcode of failed request: 66 ()
Serial number of failed request: 13
Current serial number in output stream: 13
The only solution I have is to uninstall totally fglrx so I got switch back to open driver.
How can I solve this problem ?
