Ubuntu 9.10 and Catalyst 9.12

I opted to go first with the 9.12 driver under the following
understanding:

If driver support for this card was introduced in 9.11 and was just buggy,
and 10.1 possibly had some kind of messup that was preventing it from
being usable, 9.12 would seem to be the best option to go with first in
testing as it would be an improvement on 9.11 but wouldn't have the
mispackaged problems in 10.1.

SO:

./ati-driver-installer-9-12-x86.x86_64.run

'[ok]', '[Install Driver 8.681 on Xorg 7.4 and later releases]', '[ok]',
'[exit]', '[yes]', '[Recommended]'

'aticonfig --initial -f'

And we should be good to go. Or so it seems. Let's check out our
xorg.conf:

Section "ServerLayout"
Identifier "aticonfig Layout"
Screen 0 "aticonfig-Screen[0]-0" 0 0
EndSection

Section "Files"
EndSection

Section "Module"
Load "dri"
Load "GLcore"
EndSection

Section "Monitor"
Identifier "aticonfig-Monitor[0]-0"
Option "VendorName" "ATI Proprietary Driver"
Option "ModelName" "Generic Autodetecting Monitor"
Option "DPMS" "true"
EndSection

Section "Device"
Identifier "aticonfig-Device[0]-0"
Driver "fglrx"
BusID "PCI:3:0:0"
EndSection

Section "Screen"
Identifier "aticonfig-Screen[0]-0"
Device "aticonfig-Device[0]-0"
Monitor "aticonfig-Monitor[0]-0"
DefaultDepth 24
SubSection "Display"
Viewport 0 0
Depth 24
EndSubSection
EndSection


Awesome. Now, just to be on the safe side, let's reboot. Yes, that's
right, we are rebooting a linux system. It's Ubuntu. It'll be fine.
