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.
