I can't boot into the graphical interface. If I try to startx in the text mode. It outputs the following messages:

But I have successfully installed fglrx by "apt-get install fglrx". If I manually insmod, I can see:

$ lsmod | grep fglrx
fglrx 2553695 0

But the startx still output the same message.

Any help or suggestion is really appreciated.

You appear to be using the 3.0 kernel - the default catalyst drivers that come with natty may not work with this kernel.

Can I suggest switching back to the standard natty kernel.

Alternatively, you should download and install Catalyst 11.7 or Catalyst 11.6 from the ATI website.
