I am running a HD5850 card on a kubuntu 11.10 64bits OS.
After installing the catalyst drivers (11.9 or 11.10) I can no more log in. Actually, after installation & reboot, I reach the login screen and if I fill the user/password and press return, I see quickly a black screen and then go back to the login screen.
Notice that juste after installation, I get the following message if I try a :
$sudo aticonfig --initial -f
aticonfig: error while loading shared libraries: libGL.so.1: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
$amdcccle: error while loading shared libraries: libGL.so.1: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
I'm just curious as to whether we do have the same problem, because I agree if its not just happening on my system then something could be wrong with the build scripts, and u would be second person to confirm this issue besides myself
After removing of directly installed driver I can not install Catalyst 11.10 anymore - nor DEB-packages installation nor direct installation doesn't work for me anymore. Then there is probably something broken not only in package generation script but also in uninstall script. No one version of Catalyst before doesn't make so many troubles for me.
after installing from amd website with sh atiblabla.run
try also sudo aticonfig --initial or amdconfig --initial
so it will write new xorg.conf
worked for me perfectly that way when i used amd cards
alltho every time kernel update happens u will have to install driver again.
in that case deb packages are better imo, tho i didnt have success with deb packages somehow.
if you guys have problems Ubuntu 11.10 with login screen unable to log in because no screen simply go to restart pc in then in crub edit GFX simply RENAME plaplaGFX and force to boot F10 key. It helps to go login screen with picture and uninstall or reinstall drivers when needed.
This is the best driver since 11.06. OpenCL is still broken (read: OpenCL apps still busywait on a CPU, doesn't find both hardware devices like 11.6) but the performance in Windows games under Wine -- WOW! I'm not lying when I say I was blown away. A very visible difference in previously unplayable games like X3 TC and Champions Online. A 5830 with 11.10 is probably on par with an 8800GT running Windows games. This is amazing progress.
I have an Asus K53TA laptop with A6-3400M APU and Radeon HD6650M discrete graphics card. I am using Ubuntu 11.04 64 bit.
Was using Catalyst 11.4 earlier since Ubuntu's restricted drivers installs that by default. Used only the integrated card and did not recognise the discrete card but it worked fine and was stable.
Used Fedora 15 64 bit with Catalyst 11.8 and it worked fine too Gnome 3.
However, Catalyst 11.9 caused many problems especially with KDE where it used to crash many times.
I didn't know it was a Catalyst issue until I read the release notes in the article about the Catalyst 11.10 release. Installed 11.10 and found general 2D slowness in Unity and Gnome. Also suspend is faulty. After resuming from suspend, blank screen. Does not work at all even if I suspend/resume many times. Have to shut it down forcefully by pressing and holding the power button.
Also, since the past few days using Gnome/Unity pressing Alt+Spacebar always causes window manager to crash. DE is fine, but no titlebars on windows anymore. This seems to happen on both Catalyst 11.9 and Catalyst 11.10. Right now I'm using Unity 2D which is fast,snappy and stable.
