(SOLVED) DEBIAN: GDM won't start, fglrx needs libstdc++.so.5, but not found
I finally managed to install Debian Etch on my machine, dual booting to WinXP Pro. P965 motherboard ( solved the JMicron problem by using the daily netinst cd, installing only the basic system, apt-cdrom add the first 2 CD's of the weekly builds, and installing X with GNOME.), ATI X1900GT at PCIe, 2 GB of RAM, 250 GB HD, 19" Samsung 960BF TFT-LCD, wireless Logitech mouse and keyboard.
Managed to startx by using "vga" driver on my X1900GT, got gnome working at 320x200 resolution.
Downloaded ati fglrx driver ver. 8.33.6 from ati site. Installed it using the .run installer.
Now, when I try to startx, my screen goes blank, and ctrl-alt-bkspc won't work, I have to hard reset the system.
At the end of the the log file (I can't remember the name, may be Xorg.0.log), it says that dependency libstdc++.so.5 is not there. I managed to figure out that fglrx needs GCC 3.3.5 after some googling. I have GCC 4.0 and GCC 4.1. So I have libstdc++.so.6. Does installing GCC 3.3.5 mean downgrading? As I read somewhere it is not possible to downgrade Debian.
How can I solve this problem?
modprobe fglrx says that the module is loaded, fglrxinfo says no screen services or something similar. (I'm at work now so I can't really write the exact messages and such). fglrxconfig -> no such command.
I read that compiling the source instead of using ati's installer will solve the problem, but I don't know how to compile under linux.
Anything will be helpful, thank you.
