    Debian Jessie segfault in Xorg




      I tried two ways to install fglrx driver (Debian repo, official run file).

      But I have the same issue with the two ways.


      I did the next steps:

      - apt-get install fglrx-driver

      - aticonfig --initial (I tried add only device section too => ATIProprietary - Debian Wiki )- reboot

      - Lightdm not start (I must remove xorg.conf and restart lightdm to have a graphical interface)


      I attach my lspci entry and my xorg log.


      Thanks for your help.

          Try to use "aticonfig --initial -f" (as root) instead of "aticonfig --initial".

          Also check if the Section "Device" of  generated "xorg.conf" has string

          BusID       "PCI:a:0:0"

          (as it's busID of "0a:00.0 Display controller") after

          Driver      "fglrx"

          Note that without xorg.conf your notebook use Intel video-driver integrated to CPU.

          Also note that if you use radeon videocard on you notebook then battery-life will shorter than with Intel GPU.


          This info is from this article.

            Seems lspci gives the address of device as hex number while "X loader" (I don't know how is it called correctly) uses decimal numbers

                For the persons that have the same problem.


                I try xserver-xorg-video-intel of sid.


                I add this line in my sources.list

                deb http://http.debian.net/debian jessie-backports main


                I update my driver with this line

                apt-get install -t jessie-backports xserver-xorg-video-intel


                I set my xorg.conf that aticonfig created in /etc/X11 and reboot.


                And it work very nice ^^

                Thanks everyone for your help.
