Installing AMD Catalyst 13.4 on Ubuntu Raring with Hybrid Graphics


When trying to install fgrlx 13.4 from the AMD website or the xorg-edgers PPA, the installation goes smoothly, but when I to aticonfig --initial -f, I get the following error:

Code:
    Uninitialised file found, configuring.
    PowerXpress info: Diagnostic output from /usr/lib64/fglrx/switchlibglx:
    update-alternatives: warning: forcing reinstallation of alternative /usr/lib/fglrx/ld.so.conf because link group x86_64-linux-gnu_gl_conf is broken
    update-alternatives: warning: not replacing /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/xorg/extra-modules with a link
Then when I boot, X won't start.

Does anybody have an idea of how to fix this? My video card lines in lspci are as follows:
Code:
00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation 2nd Generation Core Processor Family Integrated Graphics Controller (rev 09)
    01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: Advanced Micro Devices [AMD] nee ATI Whistler [Radeon HD 6600M/6700M/7600M Series]
I have posted to both Ubuntu forums and AskUbuntu about this, and haven't gotten a single response. I'm starting to get discouraged.

Thanks in advance!

Have you looked at the contents of /var/log/Xorg.0.log? There may be some error messages that will help to identify your problem.

Found the file, it's 1000 lines long. Any lines in particular I should grep for?

Lines with warnings are prefixed with (WW) and errors with (EE), so ^(WW) and ^(EE) may be good regexes to pass to grep.
