64 bit. Reinstalling Kubuntu this time.

headers-generic-amd64

headers-all

linux-image-amd64

open up a terminal and type in the following:

cd Downloads
sudo dpkg -i linux-*.deb
sudo update-grub

restart, choose the new kernel to boot with (not sure how ati/amd graphics drivers are, but you might need to reinstall them with this new kernel source.) it might also just be easier to upgrade to 11.10, as the gcc versions would be different if it needs to compile anything agianst the kernel source (most times you can ignore these types of errors and compile anyway.) the choice is up to you.

Ok, I give up.

Installed Kubuntu, fresh from an install DVD. The boot hangs when I restart and nothing is outputed to the screen. I also installed Ubuntu, downloaded all the cumulative updates, then with an up to date version of 11.04 I attempted to uprade to 11.10. And it hangs at boot as well. It appears whatever display drivers, or kernel improvement are in 11.10 actually break my llano system rather then fix the problems in 11.04.

I am open to suggestions, but at this point I think I am done with Ubuntu. Been at this off and on for a week now... incredibly frustrated. Very likely going to reinstall windows.

I understand your frustrations. One thing that you must accept if you are going to run Linux as your main OS is that it usually takes a little time for the latest technologies, like an APU, to become mature.

Windows has the advantage of AMD delivering drivers on day 1, while Linux is left to write their own.

In the end, the Linux implementation is often superior and longer lasting but wait for it you must. There are other options but you have to be willing to deal with these kinds of frustrations from time to time.

Well it seems that the problem is kernel 3.0. Reinstalled kubuntu 11.04, updated it to the lastest stable kernel from the package manager in addition to all the intermediate updates. With a complete up to day version of kubuntu 11.04, no proprietary display drivers ever installed, I attempted to manually update my kernel to 3.0. It ruined my kubuntu install. When I boot I get the kubuntu chime which tells me the desktop has loaded, but nothing is outputed to my monitors. Kernel 3.0 was supposed to fix my display issues rather then break on my system completely. This isn't a Ubuntu issues, so if I want to use linux, with any distro, I have to wait until the next kernel update, which may ore may not address these issues, and may or may not make it even worse. Monumentally frustrated. Going to reinstall windows today.

wait, you weren't using the fglrx drivers provided by amd? i'm pretty sure the gallium drivers (the open source ati/amd drivers) do not support the apu right now...

You can't update the kerenel correctly with the proprietary drivers installed. I figured out that this is the reason my system broke last time I tried to update the kernel. The commands were a little different, but the idea was the same.

I don't think it matter anyway, because the issue I had was the AMD watermark. Even if I manage to update to kernel 3.0, I would still have to use the proprietary ATI display driver indefinitely. I just can't have that eye sore in the bottom of the screen for a year or more until someone finally gets around to making a fix.
