Hi,

 

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.

 

Thanks!

I currently have a monitor by a company called "Venturer". I have no idea where i got it from or what model is, all I know is that it's resolution is 1024x768x75 . Recently however I ran into another problem. I installed the drivers again and fiddled around with some settings, however the screen is still blue and this time I can't even open the Terminal to uninstall it.

To reach terminal you can boot in multi-user level (init 3), without X.

However, could you show Xorg.0.log and xorg.conf before uninstalling fglrx?

May be, they will be useful.

If I correctly understand your question,

/var/log/Xorg.0.log -- logs of starting graphics (X);
/etc/X11/xorg.conf -- file for configuring of start of X.

Another problem: I tried Ctrl + Alt + F1 again, and it worked, but I cannot uninstall the AMD Catalyst Drivers.

I booted into SystemRescueCD to get the files you requested the contents of.

Xorg.0.log: http://pastebin.com/PKVQkhcm

xorg.conf: http://pastebin.com/9YUEQCvq (I noticed that the file is called xorg.conf.in, is that okay?)

In case of problems with X, run machine in runlevel 3 (for Debian see https://wiki.debian.org/RunLevel, for example) to work in terminal.

From your Xorg.0.log it is seen that X tries to be started with radeon driver instead of fglrx (Catalyst). But now it doesn't matter.

File xorg.conf.in is unecessary.

So, describe, what you will get with the new installation, please.
