Gnome 32-bit black screen please help!
I really need your help. I love backtrack 5 and I want to get it working with cal++. I have a radeon hd 4870 and everytime I try to install the ATI driver, I get a black screen. I've tried the newest version 11-8 as well as 11-5, and both do not work. I'll run an aticonfig --initial and it says the device is found, but after I logout startx doesn't work. I don't want to install backtrack to my hard drive yet because I can't even get the driver working right, so for now I'm testing it on the live cd. I've seen fixes for KDE 64 bit but how can I fix this on gnome? Please help me guys, this is driving me crazy!
