Hi, I’m new -and inexperienced- Suse user,
I have a new laptop with an ATI 5650 graphic card. I have been using the Radeon driver with very low performance for a while.
this driver was installed following the “Xorg -configure” procedure as descibed in the forum.
Today I installed the newly released driver from Ati.
this is what I did:
- in /etc/X11/xorg.conf I changed “radeon” with “fglrx”
- I run the driver downloaded from the ATI website
- I run the command “aticonfig --initial”
I’m no longer able to start the X server (the computer boots to full console) and I have no idea how to go forward…
if I give the command “startx” I get a “segmentation error” and I go back to console
can somebody point me in the right direction?
thanks in advance
