  • Black screen after installing fglrx

    Hi all,

    got my new PC now. My Graphic card is a Sapphire ATi HD2600XT DDR4. But when I install fglrx and try to start my Xserver the Computer freezes with a black screen. Following error from kdm.log:

    I used the NVIDIA driver before, so I assume somethings trying to use those old NVIDIA drivers. But what? And how can I remove/disable it?

    Thanks for your help!

    Never mind, I'm going to install Kubuntu 8.04 anyway and think that will solve the issue...

      If you used the NVIDIA Installer:

      nvidia-installer --uninstaller

      would be best to do that before installing ATI drivers
