@stevenwr38. I know your comments wasn't for me. I tried what u said, purged the fglrx debs, and unistalled, followed #14, absolutely no errors, installed the debs, and did sudo aticonfig --initial, rebooted, computer came up, checked again cache folder empty, then ran the updates, updates install successfully, reboot, computer gets stuck at black screen and loud fan. Rebooted in failsafe, used ppa-purge, got rid of the .78 purged the files, cleaned cache both manually, and with ubuntu tweak, then with bleachbit, reconfigured the .73, works ok, but just laggy, glxgears got me at only 4k frames per seconds.. then tried it all over again, #14, installed the debs, sudo aticonfig --initial, reboot, readded x-swat repo, ran upgrade, files install successfully, ran aticonfig --initial, failed, ran ati-config --force --initial failed as well.
