Hi all -
I have searched the forums already and the last person with this issue was in August of last year.
Whenever I logout or shutdown, the system ends up with a screen full of graphical glitches (either a bunch of green rectangles interspersed on a black screen, or the whole screen full of multi-colored rectangles). This happens ALMOST every time I logout, and is not confined to KDE, it also happens on LXDE, Fluxbox, and Windowmaker. (and of course, the shutdown or logging out freezes at that point, unfinished.)
The solution for the other person was to disable the "Activate APIC" settings, both regular and local. I have done this, with no lasting success. Occasionally I can shutdown normally but certainly cannot rely on it doing so every time.
I have an ATI Radeon 3200, with the x11-driver-video-radeonhd installed, but the Catalyst control center doesn't seem to work. Not sure that it is enabled, since my KDE desktop won't let me use effects.
Any suggestions ? Thanks in advance.
