Can't upgrade to Jaunty - video card not supported any more

Bug Description

Trying to upgrade my system from Kubuntu 8.10 to 9.04.

Distribution Upgrade gets as far as "Preparing to upgrade" and I get a pop-up saying "This computer is currently using the AMD 'fglrx' graphics driver. No version of this driver is available that works with your hardware in Ubuntu 9.04. Do you want to continue?"

If my video card isn't supported, my upgrade can't go ahead.

Hi ubuntu-beermad,

Please attach the output of `lspci -vvnn`, and attach your /var/log/Xorg.0.log (and maybe Xorg.0.log.old) file from after reproducing this issue. If you've made any customizations to your /etc/X11/xorg.conf please attach that as well.

Changed in fglrx-installer (Ubuntu):
status: New → Incomplete

Hi Bryce,
My understanding from reading elsewhere is that this problem may be due to the fact that there are problems with the ATI fglrx driver with the new version of X being used in this release and that it isn't included in it for that reason, hence why it needs to be removed.

I've added lspci output and the xorg.conf file - I can't do another run attempt at the moment as I have to rush away; if necessary I'll try to do that later, but if my understanding is right, there may be no point as the problem is explained.
