In the early hours of the morning I have made a small problem much larger.
The changes I made have made, make my system crash when my desktop loads and I open almost any window.
Luckily I have multiple operating systems and hope to make any nessesary changes to restore my system to the original configuration.
I have an ATI Radeon X1200 and I have always used ATI Radeon X1950 and Earlier Driver in XFdrake.
I have also always used the method described in the link in this post : http://www.pclinuxos.com/forum/index.php?PHPSESSID=72ikeaqrmcp0pdfkmju9b0skm7&topic=92281.0
This has always worked very well for me playing 3D games and such.
So this was my previous setup.
This morning I noticed in that in PC>More Applications>Configuration>
there is a listing named "AMD Catalyst Control Center"
When I ran the program I got an error message saying that there were no supported drivers detected.
Also the output of:
hollow@Destroyer:~# aticonfigI assume now that this is because I am using the kernel 188.8.131.52bfs and NOT one of the .a64 kernels ?
No supported devices detected
I was reading a post online and as it recomended I made the following changes:
Completetly removed the following packages via synaptic:
fglrx-control-center (If I remember correctly)
Then for the terminal I ran the following commands:
This opened a gui dialog for the installer.
I ran the installer and it required a reboot.
I did a reboot and then ran:
Which launched the PCC "Configure your Video Card"
I selected the ATI RADEON x1950 and Earlier driver as I have in the past.
After another reboot I reinstalled dkms-fglrx & fglrx-control-center (? not sure on exact name)
I also marked for reinstallation: x11-driver-ati-fglrx and applied the changes.
After another reboot my system crashes when opening 1 or 2 windows. and the graphics are lagging .
I wish to return to my original setup. It was unwise of me to make those changes. I don't usually install things especially drivers from anywhere but synaptic.
Any help would be appreciated.
I am standing by to provide any additional information.
