I can't install amd 12.11 beta 8 under Debian Wheezy.

 

After driver has been installed, i open he console and i issue the aticonfig --initial command and then i restart.

 

After restarting, my desktop won't load. I can't even load the console via ctrl+shift+F2...

 

Is there any hint to solve my problem!

You'll find a log file under /usr/share/ati. What does it say?

At this very moment i can't say what does the log files says because i have uninstalled the drivers and there is no ati folder under /usr/share.

 

Anyway, the steps to install the drivers are:

1 - download and untar the zip file, wich results in a .run file

2 - turn the .run file into executable by "sudo chmod +x ati...run"

3 - run the file "./ati...run"

4 - follow the instructions provided by the setup installation window, choosing "install the driver under xorg 6.9 or later" (or something like this)

5 - after it finishes, issue the  "aticonfig --initial" command in the terminal

6 - reboot...

 

Are these steps correct?

You are not alone with this. Same problem at Ubuntu 12.10. I've reinstall drivers to open version. Seems that Ubuntu 12.10 and Debian Wheezy can't work with new drivers. Let's wait for fixes

But is this any known bug? Is this issue official?
