I upgraded to the 12.04.4 lts saucy stack from 12.04.3:
sudo apt-get install --install-recommends linux-generic-lts-saucy xserver-xorg-lts-saucy libgl1-mesa-glx-lts-saucy
That installed the 3.11 kernel to go with the 3.8 I had previously. However, when logging in I see I am in fallback mode, and fglrx is nowhere to be seen, from Xorg.0.log:
Loading extension GLX FATAL: Module fglrx not found. (WW) fglrx: No matching Device section for instance (BusID PCI:0@0:1:1) found FATAL: Module fglrx not found. Loading extension FGLRXEXTENSION
I cant load it directly either:
> sudo modprobe fglrx FATAL: Module fglrx not found.
If I boot with the old 3.8 kernel everything is hunkey-dorey. No probs at all.
I think this might be some kind of dkms problem. In /lib/modules I have:
drwxr-xr-x 4 root root 4096 Feb 10 20:43 3.8.0-35-generic drwxr-xr-x 4 root root 4096 Feb 24 20:36 3.11.0-17-generic
> ls -l /var/lib/dkms/fglrx/13.251/ total 8 drwxr-xr-x 3 root root 4096 Feb 5 22:05 3.8.0-35-generic drwxr-xr-x 4 root root 4096 Feb 24 20:36 build lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 21 Dec 27 17:06 source -> /usr/src/fglrx-13.251
Shouldnt there be a 3.11 kernel entry there? How to I refresh dkms to see the new kernel that just got installed? Or is that not the problem?
