Bug Description

I have installed ubuntu 9.04 from a live CD coming in a magazine and the build of the driver fglrx worked fine. I have updated all the packages upgradables from the ubuntu repositories and the build of the drive failed. Then I have upgraded to 9.10 because I read in the wiki that new kernel parameters for video cards at setup is work in progress for radeon cards. The upgraded downloaded all the packages but when building the fglrx it failed. At that poin the upgrade was incomplete (nevertheless all the packages were installed). The last two steps, clean up and reboot were not executed.
Now I was working on other stuff but probably the system tried to build again the drive and failed.
Very often I have problems with new releases of Ubuntu, probably my PC, being built by me buying each single piece is not very standard (AMD Sempron, ATI radeon 2400 HD AGP 8x attached to a digital monitor via digital interface instead of VGA).
I had to install (and still using) the vesa mode...
