Ubuntu: Xubuntu 14.04 ATI/AMD driver problem



Question:

I'm trying to install a driver for ATI Radeon HD 7900 series. I've read a lot of different articles, but I still cannot to do it.

For example, I've tryed almost all instructions/way from this page https://help.ubuntu.com/community/BinaryDriverHowto/AMD

There is always only one result, after reboot Xubuntu can't start. It shows only loading screen, and I can't even open terminal by pressing Alt+Ctrl+F1! I guess, I may to boot from LiveCD and look at starting logs.. But I don't know where starting logs are.


Solution:1

The most up to date instructions for installing the binary driver can be found on this unofficial wiki page.

If you don't intend to play games, I would advice you to stay with the open source driver (radeon) which will give you the most performance in 2D.

For more help, please attach the result of /var/log/messages and the content of /var/log/Xorg.0.log and /var/log/Xorg.1.log. You can use the command cat /path/to/log | pastebinit to upload your errors logs on the web and easiliy provide the error messages.

Note also, that there was a bug with the latest fglrx driver. A fix has been released, be sure to sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade your install.
