Problems installing ATI 11.8 drivers with HD4670 card, Slackware -current


Followed the instructions from the unofficial ATI wiki twice, running startx just brings up a blank screen. Any suggestions?

If your use kernel in current ,try :

Code:
./ati-driver-installer-11-8-x86.x86_64.run --buildpkg
and then

Code:
installpkg fglrx-8.881-x86-1.tgz
don't forget add

Code:
blacklist radeon
to

Code:
/etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf
These works fine with my 4570.

Will try that. A little more detail: I generated an xorg.conf before I installed it and ran aticonfig --initial after installing the package. Then I edited the new xorg.conf as per the wiki, commented out the radeon and added the fglrx driver. I am using the kernel in the Aug. 14 release of -current.

Never thought to blacklist the radeon driver. If that's in the wiki, I completely missed it.
