Bug Description

I installed Ibex and updated everything. Then installed the ATI drivers from the repository. I did the aticonfig -initial - f command but it complained that I didn't have an xorg.conf. Even though I did I still rebuilt it with sudo dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg (which I found in an Ubuntu forum) and sudo dpkg-reconfigure -phigh xserver-xorg which I found in one of the logs.

It won't boot into anything but low resolution and at the bottom of the log is this:

drmOpenDevice: node name is /dev/dri/card0
drmOpenDevice: open result is -1, (No such device or address)
drmOpenDevice: open result is -1, (No such device or address)
drmOpenDevice: Open failed

Here are some files that I've seen you ask for in other bugs.

I ended up re installing again and now everything works. If you want to follow up on the bug, that's fine, but my situation has been resolved.

Thanks,

Thank you for reporting this bug about fglrx, however the video card mentioned in this bug report is no longer supported in fglrx. ATI only supports R600 and newer chips. You'll want to focus on using the -ati driver instead for this hardware.

Changed in fglrx-installer (Ubuntu):
