    PS: The xorg-driver-fglrx file is 89.9MB and it's from the Kubuntu repo's, is this Catalyst 9.10? Might the Kubuntu repo's not be different from the Ubuntu repo's and therefore the xorg-driver-fglrx driver not 9.10 yet? :S

      Looks like you're running the driver which was released with Ubuntu 9.04, ie an early version of the Catalyst 9.4 driver.

        Yeah but I did #aptitude dist-upgrade and so I'm also running KDE4.3 now. But how do I fix this? =x
        Should I just install 9.10 from a live image? I don't want to risk trashing my entire HDD with alpha software and 9.8 doesn't work either =x

          there server needs time to sync english server has the driver first germans 1 day later..

          if you DU to 9.10 you sould also make a apt-get dist-upgrade -f apt-get install -f

          purge the old driver if you can apt-get purge xorg-fglrx....

          and then reinstall the newdriver apt-get install.

          you also can get the files from the server by hand and use dpkg -i

          i think your problem is the "old" driver the 9.10 in ubuntu 9.10 is not make for an clean upgrade or the old one is broken.

          Please install a fresh clean ubuntu 9.10 and install the FGLRX from the repo and you will see it works!

            Update

            Great! I got an RMA number

            It's outside of warrenty but I can send it back. If the card is confirmed to be broken by the store than I get a free replacement + mail cost ^^,

            I haven't tried the 9.10 driver for Ubuntu yet, but I am currently busy with OpenCL under Windows with the ATI Stream shizzle anyway so I get back to Linux whenever Gallium + OpenCL state tracker for a n00b distro lands :P
