I was hoping that with this release, the first having a graduated driver from ATI that has a lot more bells and whistles than the default Gutsy driver did, I was hoping that I wouldn't have any problems with my old ATI X800. But...I was wrong. I install the driver using the restricted driver manager, and then on reboot, I get this weird "Out of Range" error coming up on the monitor, leaving me unable to see much of anything, and I then have to reboot and I've just left my Ubuntu partition alone at this point. I try booting into recovery mode in Ubuntu, using the "Fix X server", but then I get a white screen after login screen. Then all I have left to do is a sudo dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg, and that has no 3D or any sort of acceleration at all. Any ideas at what I should do? Is there a way I can add resolutions to my xorg.conf before I reboot after I've installed my ATI drivers using restricted driver manager? Just, I'd like to know what I can do to get ubuntu up and running, cause I just want to completely switch over.
But...here's some other things, if it helps anyone. After I've installed my ATI driver and I've gotten the error again, I did ctrl+alt+f1, did cp /var/log/Xorg.0.log ~/Desktop, and did sudo dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg so I can see it. Did the same for my Xorg.conf as well.
