Bug Description

I was running Oneiric beta, but have not done a software update for two weeks. When I updated to the current (release + 10 days) code, my display went wonky. There are hundreds of moving scan-lines corrupting the image.

Since it seems to be a display issue I checked for the proprietary fglrx driver. It showed as not installed on the System Settings Additional Drivers applet. I tried to install the selected driver, labelled "ATI/AMD Proprietary FGLRX driver (Post-release updates)". It failed, and referred me to /var/log/jockey.log for more info (I've attached it though it may have been appended to or overwritten with the next update).

I moved on to the next driver, labelled "ATI/AMD Proprietary FGLRX driver" (I assume this went out with release). After rebooting with this driver, which successfully installed, my display is back to normal.
