Make sure that you have installed:
Xorg Nouveau Driver-1.0.10
Xorg ATI Driver-7.3.0

Mesalib is required for compiling the driver for your graphics chip set.

When compiling Mesa be sure that you do not remove anything from the
configure line that is shown on the instruction page as they are needed to
compile your driver.

Mesa will need to be compiled first (if its not already installed).

By having both of the AMD chip set drivers installed your computer has
more chance of being able to switch properly to the graphics mode as it
has a fall back.

Also it may well pay to install Xorg VESA Driver-2.3.3 as this one will be
used if both of the others fail.
