assigning raw devices: error when going to init3

when trying to set up ati graphics drivers I get this error message when going to init3

From the gui, I go "ctrl+alt+F1, then login and init3, to close the x interface and gui, Then I get this error....

"Assigning raw devices: cannot open master raw device '/dev/rawctrl' (no such file or directory)"

I also get this when trying to restart the PC.

So I havent been able to save changes to kde, like single click mouse functions, and non-graphic boot display.

This first happened while trying to setup ati graphics drivers/modules, since then I've done a clean install.... But I still get the error, but now at shutdown.

Any advice appreciated

Funny, but it dosen't occur when booting up with the Linux-NonFB, mode.

So it seems to be some thing to do with the graphics setup, especially when switching to a terminal outside X.
