Desktop catalyst error and compiz fusion white screen of death
I installed openSuse 11.0 for my Linux OS and downloaded catalyst 8.9 to be installed after. Then, I completed the installation of Catalyst 8.9 by following the ‘Advanced Micro Devices (AMD)’ site’s instruction and the installation was a success. (I can tell that the driver was installed because I was then able to enhance my screen resolution). In spite of this, I came to face an error message when I tried starting the catalyst control center. The attached error message will give you a better idea.
There was a problem initializing Catalyst Control Center Linux edition. It could be caused by the following.
No ATI graphics driver is installed, or the ATI driver is not functioning properly.
Please install the ATI driver appropriate for you ATI hardware, or configure using aticonfig.
In addition to this issue, my computer screen becomes white whenever I attempt to enable desktop effect for compiz fusion. I have to restart my PC to return to my normal desktop (or disable desktop effect on a white screen without seeing anything on monitor). How should I go about solving this problem? I need your assistance to get me out of this bad situation.
