Hello!

I am using fglrx driver for my ati card and kde 4.10.

When KDE loads I cant switch to VT (console) - when I switch I just get a black screen..

Any idea what could be causing this?

Thx, Sale

edit:
I just found in xorg log:
Code:
(EE) fglrx(0): Failed to get ConsoleMode


this probably has something to do with it, just dont know how to fix it.

You may want to enable uvesafb in the kernel .config.

Solved it, just had to downgrade ati-drivers to version 13.1.

Thx, Sale

Or you could try "vga" switch in your kernel boot line as well.

Please see bug report.

@OP, would you consider renaming/adding the ati-drivers-13.4 and removing solved from your topic heading? This would help others in trying to find relevant info on this topic (this thread wasn't easy to re-find).

Moved from Desktop Environments to Kernel & Hardware as it fits better here.

A weird observation:

I see this problem on my RadeonHD 5770 with fglrx as well.
However one time I compiled the Radeon KMS driver into my kernel by mistake, and with that I was able to switch back to console(?) If I remember correctly?

I'm not sure it's a good idea to compile ATI Radeon KMS and use fglrx at the same time... but it did something...
