Comment 0 for bug 1032672

I run updates today on my quantal box.

I have a ATI Madison [Radeon HD 5000M Series] and the updates removes the xserver-xorg-video-radeon and xserver-xorg-video-ati

When I restart, all xserver is broken because /usr/bin/X cannot be found. I even don't have vesa or fbdev for start with "startx" command.

I install with recovery mode xserver-xorg-video-vesa and xserver-xorg-video-fbdev and now I have a crappy 1024 resolution and no second monitor support.

If I install the packages xserver-xorg-video-radeon and xserver-xorg-video-ati I still have the same problem.

So I try to install fglrx-updates, and it conflicts with a dependency of a virtual package that it is not provided anymore

sudo apt-get install fglrx-updates fglrx-amdcccle-updates
