show inxi -Gxx

this issue is unrelated to your first issue.

sgfxi should have asked you to pick which video device when it started, that's what it is set to do for dual cards of different types.

The cause of the error is usually the wrong pcibus id being used, though that usually says something like: no screens found

now that the beta is working, try sgfxi -B (until amd changes it again, of course, then it won't work until I fix it, again)

here is the output of inxi -Gxx

I've reloaded the OS using the 64bity iso from kali.org, and once I get a clean install working with all the smxi stuff working cleanly, I'll attack the graphics side of things

fglrx: No matching device section for instance 9BusID PCI:0@1:0:1) found

[Radeon HD 5000M Series] bus-ID: 01:00.0

did you edit your xorg.conf manually? sgfxi, again, should be asking you which card you want to install a driver for, if it's not, there is a reason it's not, either you are taking an action to stop it, which is critical that you now report, or sgfxi has a bug.

Sometimes users have such convoluted xorg.conf files that it's simply not possible for anything to figure them out, so you'd need to post your xorg.conf, your /var/log/sgfxi/sgfxi.log samples so i can see what's up.

use pastebin.net and post a link.

If you are stopping the sgfxi question to pick your video card, that is the cause of the failure, the fact you aren't mentioning it makes me suspect either a bug or user error in this case.

It's not ambiguous, you start sgfxi, it detects two video cards, and asks you which card you are installing a driver for.

your pciid don't match, that is.

I neglect another cause, assuming that you are seeing the sgfxi question, and that is an actual fglrx bug, which would hardly be surprising or unexpected, but until you report and answer all the questions I just asked, I won't spend more time on this.

I didn't edit xorg by hand

I didn't break out of sgfxi to select stuff, I choose opt.2 which is the discreet card.

I did have to install headers and 2 dependencies, but after that it all goes clean.

reboot, and blinking cursor in upper right corner, X doesn't start.

I've taken the liberty to paste the previous Xorg.0.log.old file from the less than successful attempt to use the ati card.

as your xorg.conf clearly shows, there's 5 at least instances of the fglrx card listed.

I'm not clear, since each one shows the right busid, how fglrx itself decided to use a different pcibusid.

Please show: inxi -bxxx

because something is wrong here, i don't believe sgfxi would be able to create those 5 separate device ids, but I'll have to check the code for the dual card feature to make sure, as far as I know, it should just check xorg.conf for the right busid.

In general do not paste such large things here, use pastebin.net it's easy and cleaner, I only need to see the stuff one time.

Please think back, after posting your inxi -bxxx output, as to what initially generated that xorg.conf file, that looks to me almost like a mepis type error, though I'm not sure.

If there is no xorg.conf file, sgfxi will generate one using the native xorg.conf file generation commands, that's basically a blank xorg.conf more or less with just a bit of content.

if sgfxi did not ask you to create a new xorg.conf file the first time it ran, then one already existed, which suggests that whatever created it was broken.

Again, sgfxi does not have the brains to increment the Identifier "Card1" type thing the way your xorg.conf has them.

I would suggest, for now, also doing this:

mv /etc/X11/xorg.conf /etc/X11/xorg.conf-multifglrx-cards

as root, then rerunning sgfxi, which should create a fairly clean xorg.conf file, after it runs, open it up and confirm that the multiple listings for the fglrx pci:1:0:0 do not occur, there should be one and only one present, and that should be card 0.

You have a lot of issues here, so you have to fix them one by one to find out what's actually wrong, if anything.

If the initial xorg.conf generation by sgfxi, which uses xorg commands to do that, creates those multiple listings, then your xorg has a bug I believe. Again, if I had to guess, I'd guess this is a Mepis system due to the type of bug this shows.

if you then get a successful fglrx instance working, from then on use the flags to set default version of card to use and skip xorg.conf creation/edit, though clearly something is seriously out of whack on the initial creation.

by the way, look on the bright side, 3-4 has been updated from amd's 3.4 driver, literally changed as I hacked in other fixes by amd. The amd beta now again works, after amd again changed that path/file name syntax randomly.

The beta installer works again, the download too.

So that leaves the actual problems.

Have you ever run something like an amd catalyst configure utility? something really broke your xorg.conf file, and it's worth your time figuring out what it was.

I don't recognize the kernel, looks like a custom one? that should not matter since you have the headers installed however, and the driver built fine as far as I can see, though fglrx installer has a bug where it does NOT return error on failure, so sgfxi itself has no way to know if the catalyst/fglrx install actually worked. Maybe one day some genius at amd will have an intellectual breakthrough and have their programming return error codes on failure, lol, but don't hold your breath.

I've reloaded the OS using the 64bity iso from kali.org,


your first reference to 'kali' I took as a misspelling for 'Cali', the short term for california.

It's almost certain that your xorg.conf issue is caused by a bug in the kali stuff, this is very reminiscent of bugs mepis introduces to core configs, and is why I no longer support actively mepis.

Basically you need to nuke, dump, that bad xorg.conf file, as i said, then let sgfxi make you one, using the actual debian packaged xorg config file generator, which is automatic, then sgfxi will or should ask you to pick between the intel and amd/ati card, then it should all work, unless kali has introduced further unknown bugs.

Again, debian's stuff works fine, or has worked, so this new issue you have is almost certainly caused by something in the setup scripts of kali iso.

sorry about the large paste, when you referenced pastebin the first time, I didn't realize you were talking about a website, I will keep it mind


kali is short for kali linux, a wheezy based pen-test distro .

I nuked the xorg.conf file before running sgfxi but then had to install the headers, and a couple of depends

I will do the following things, in order

1. nuke the current Xorg.conf
2. nuke the current Xorg.0.log file ( so it creates a clean one)
2. run sgfxi -B

report back with results

should I use the debian based fglrx or the other one? if it comes to it?
