    undefined symbol: DPMSEnabledSwitch

    I bought the new ASUS with the ATI MOBILITY RADEON 5730.
    I install debian squeeze amd64 with vesa driver!

    i follow this forum and try the 'install-fglrx-debian.sh'
    compilation/installation is ok
    when X restart i have this message :

    (II) Loading /usr/lib/xorg/modules/drivers/fglrx_drv.so
    dlopen: /usr/lib/xorg/modules/drivers/fglrx_drv.so: undefined symbol: DPMSEnabledSwitch
    (EE) Failed to load /usr/lib/xorg/modules/drivers/fglrx_drv.so

    like another member, i just want to begin with resolution 1600x900
    because vesa limit : 1152x864 on 16/9 screen !! is not very nice

    thanks

      Currently squeeze is not supported by my script because ati did not officially release a working driver as installer, but the fglrx driver is in the repository, so do:
      Code:
      rm -f /etc/X11/xorg.conf*
      apt-get remove --purge $(dpkg -l|awk '/fglrx|libamd/{print $2}')
      apt-get --yes install fglrx-driver fglrx-modules-dkms fglrx-glx fglrx-atieventsd fglrx-control
      aticonfig --initial --nobackup
      Then reboot.

        Could you write step by step guide for this? I'm using Squeeze amd64 and belive me or not but not all packages you wrote up there are in repos.

        Thanks in advance.

                The 10.5 catalyst is available for download now.
                When I'm done backing up my data, I'll install kubuntu again and see how it goes.
