http://ubuntuforums.org – I've just installed an old ATI radeon 9600 and a fresh install of mythbuntu 9.10. I'm trying to get the ati OSS drivers working but so far all attempts have failed. I've followed this https://help.ubuntu.com/community/RadeonDriver to the letter but no matter if I just delete my xorg.conf or follow the instructions to create a new one when I reboot as x is starting it fails and the screen goes black. I tried to look at /var/log/Xorg.0,log but its blank (after restarting in recovery mode) I apt-get remove --purge fglrx* and even synaptic shows no installed fglrx packages when I search there. glxinfo |grep vendor returns SGI. Not sure what other info to post so I'll wait for a reply and keep trying in the mean time. Cheers (Hardware)
