Had the system working fine w/ Intel internal graphics. Cant get the ATI proprietary driver (fglrx) working. I pulled the DRI/AGP stuff all out of my kernel and recompiled. I recompiled xorg-drivers after changing my VIDEO_CARDS variable from intel to fglrx.

The fglrx module auto-starts after booting. When I try to start X, it exits with a ""no screens found" error.


Other items of note: System is a full EFI machine. EFI framebuffer enabled and working. Mainboard is a MSI using Intel's Z77 chipset.

Any chance fglrx drivers no longer support your card ?
If not, pastebin your xorg log.

the HD 7770 is less than a year old. If anything, its too new to be supported by the proprietary drivers, not too old.

@hedmo - I have.

The open source drivers work. I cant get the proprietary ones functioning.

Here's the Xorg.0.log output if I try to use the ATI Proprietary drivers:

X won't load 7he proprietary drivers automatically, you need to explicitly tell X to use them. Create /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/20-ati.conf with this:
Code:
Section "Device"
  Identifier "Radeon Card"
  Driver "fglrx"
EndSection
