Today I downloaded the catalyst 11.1 64 bit driver for Linux. I uninstalled the previous driver just like the instructions say to, then ran the installer package. After a reboot, my screens are still running at 1024x768 and catalyst control center will not detect my Radeon 6850. The only way to get my screens to the proper resolutions and Catalyst to detect my card is to use the old xorg.conf file that the previous catalyst driver generated.

Now the problem is that I have a watermark in the corners of my screens "AMD Unsupported Hardware." How do I actually make this driver work on its own without tweaking the xorg file? I had to do the same thing with the CCC 10.12 driver. I was hoping that this new driver would actually work out of the box.
