[Bug 1415306] Re: Ubuntu 14.10 & Radeon HD 7850, fglrx/fglrx-updates Driver fixes blank screen on boot, but can no longer enter decryption passphrase


John Morris, this bug was reported a while ago and there hasn't been any
activity in it recently. We were wondering if this is still an issue? If
so, could you please test for this with the latest development release
of Ubuntu? ISO images are available from http://cdimage.ubuntu.com
/daily-live/current/ .

If it remains an issue, could you please run the following command in
the development release from a Terminal as it will automatically gather
and attach updated debug information to this report:

apport-collect -p xorg 1415306

Please ensure you have xdiagnose installed, and that you click the Yes
button for attaching additional debugging information.

As well, given the information from the prior release is already
available, testing a release prior to the development one would not be

Thank you for your understanding.

  Ubuntu 14.10 & Radeon HD 7850, fglrx/fglrx-updates Driver fixes blank
  screen on boot, but can no longer enter decryption passphrase

Status in xorg package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  After installing fglrx or fglrx-updates Driver, rebooting (everytime
  since) loading spashscreen is visable, with the dialog for decryption
  passphrase; however entering passphrase followed by return/enter key
  has no effect.

  My current workaround is to press reset key, then on next loading
  screen select the current linux kernal with recovery mode option,
  followed by resume boot. This brings up the decryption passphrase
  dialog in terminal, and Ubuntu 14.10 loads completely thereafter.
