when going to the aticonfi I got the following : aticonfig: No supported adapters detected I have a rs960m x1200. anyone for a clue? Ubuntu 10.04 Lucid cheers

Also, did anybody notice 1s screen blackout before starting and after closing Mplayer/VLC? Couldn't find info about this issue. Catalyst 10.7, Ubuntu Lucid. x64.

I had run "ati-config-installer(8_95).run --buildpkg Ubuntu/Lucid" and then installed the modules via dpkg -i *.deb.. I removed xorg.conf, ran aticonfig ---initial

after a reboot i found following problems:

Xorg.0.log ==> (WW) fglrx(0): * kernel module (fglrx.ko) may be missing or incompatible *

and found that even so dpkg -i command had said 'Installing to /lib/modules/2.6.xx-yy-generic/update/dkms/' - there was no fglrx.ko found in that folder

To fix this i had to redo:

$ dpkg -i fglrx_8.950-0ubuntu1_i386.deb

$ service gdm restart

Failed to load /usr/lib/xorg/extra-modules/modules/linux/

On Lucid, after following all instructions to install and configure proprietary Catalyst 12.10, I kept stumbling upon abovementioned error.

After search, found some post where it was attributed to not being found, in other then suggestion to do

$ sudo ldconfig

It solved the problem.

Being just an active noob, I don't really understand the background, just guessing that 12.10 script doesn't do all the linking properly - if someone with adequate knowledge is reading this, please, examine and update the wiki, as there are many pages with this error and only one with a solution that worked for me. Probably there are others, who might benefit from it.

Thx, cheers.
