to etch and ATI Radeon Xpress 200M user
Today, I updated using aptitude... (as usual update dist-upgrade) about 10days interval.
One of updated packages include Xorg one. After upgrade, X does not kick in at all. And the ati driver I used to use (ati-driver-installer-8.40.4-x86.x86_64.run) does not work saying
Error: ./default_policy.sh does not support version
default:v2:i686:lib::none:2.6.22; make sure that the version is being
correctly set by --iscurrentdistro
Then I downloaded the new one (ati-driver-installer-8-4-x86.x86_64.run), which looked to work, at least X can kick in. However, glx does not work. (SegFaults)
I hope these problems will be taken care of in future.
Another take home message is: download ati driver before you update. It practically impossible to navigate using lynx.
