graphics proprietary driver will not activate correctly

Bug #366435 reported by Seoolas on 2009-04-24
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone

Bug Description

I have a pair Gigabyte radeon HD4850 that are cross fired.
Upon first boot of the ubuntu 9.04 the system prompts me to activate the proprietary drivers for my graphics.
When I press the "Activate" button I get a progress bar that remains empty until a message comes up that it didn't work and that I should report the problem...(sorry I could not memorize the exact phrase).

After rebooting the computer does not start the GUI and instead all I get are white characters on black screen asking for my user name and password... Being a complete rookie as I am, I had to reinstall ubuntu 9.04 to get my GUI back...

I Just thought I should let you know about it, please en light me anyway possible,

Thank you
