Sweet, I did this.
I found myself here:
I believe the driver is working, and when I get to (Under method one,
just before Post-Installation Tweaks:
typing fglrxinfo in the terminal it returns:
display: :0.0 screen: 0
OpenGL vendor string: Mesa project: www.mesa3d.org
OpenGL renderer string: Mesa GLX Indirect
OpenGL version string: 1.4 (2.1 Mesa 7.0.3-rc2)
So I follow the Removing Mesa Drivers instructions:
But alas, I do not have xserver-xgl installed.
So, I try to change my appearances to "extra" and I get a white screen
of death! my mouse works but nothing else does. I drop to a tty, and
see some compiz stuff running:
I kill all of it and the white screen (maybe gray now that I saw it
again) is gone, and this email has returned.
So I am left with these questions.
How do I confirm that the correct driver is actually running?
How do I get compiz to not give me the white(gray) screen of death (well
not really death more like a white screen of inconvenience since I don't
have to reboot or nuthin)?
