I am on Debian Jessie/Sid 64-bit and trying to use:
3.12.0-customkernel 00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation 2nd Generation Core Processor Family Integrated Graphics Controller (rev 09) 01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. [AMD/ATI] Seymour [Radeon HD 6400M/7400M Series]
I installed the ATI drivers based on https://wiki.debian.org/ATIProprietary#configure. I am getting "Oh no! Something has gone wrong " instead of proper GDM. I removed the .Xauthority file, the temp X files, etc., but none of that was any help.
Then I installed the amd-catalyst-13.11-beta6-linux-x86.x86_64.run driver by forwarding my display to another computer. Somehow the AMD driver was failing to install without X screen. I created the initial xorg.conf with
aticonfig. That did not work either.
I am not sure if I am hitting a bug here, or something is corrupt in my system. At this point I am out of ideas and I cannot find any leads on the web either. So SU is my last hope I guess.
Here are some logs
