I'm trying to install the Catalyst drivers for Radeon HD 6670 on my Linux Debian Jessie machine, however when I restart the computer aftre installing them my screen goes blue. I am guessing that this means the resolution is too high.


I can open a virtual terminal by pressing Ctrl + Alt + F1, and the resolution isnt too high there so I can use that to fix it. I used that to uninstall the drivers.


At the moment I'm running the system without drivers, however I want to play some games soon and I think I will need them for that.


If anyone can help me, it will be much appreciated.
