Solved: 1 Year, 9 Months, 2 Weeks, 1 Day, 20 Hours, 8 Minutes, 42 Seconds ago demo causes x crash

Ubuntu Feisty 7.04 x86_64, ATI Radeon x800

I have the ATI driver, fglrx, and the 32 bit compatibility libs. The demo install completes with no errors, however upon starting the game, I get only a black screen/enlarged cursor as though its switching modes, but then x restarts. Log is attached.

Well, it seems the fglrx driver installed with apt-get is not in fact the latest, or at least was not working properly for me. Using the ATI provided driver here:

http://ati.amd.com/support/driver.html

and the installation instructions (a pain), here:

http://wiki.cchtml.com/index.php/Ubuntu

solved this problem.
