    [SOLVED] X server failure

    In an attempt to run call of duty on wine, I've installed a package with drivers for ATI cards. My Laptop (a Dell Latitude D600 with Kubuntu 8.10) has an ATI Mobility Radeon 9000 card. I used Adept and looked for something with 'ATI'. I've installed one of the first packages that it showed (I think it was something like this: ATI Linux driver packages for Debian).
    Every time I try to start my computer, this happens:
    -Grub loads, and boots Kubuntu from my harddisk
    -The Kubuntu loadscreen loads almost completely
    *Checking battery state...
    setting Advanced Power Management level to 0xfe (245)
    -The X server starts and shows the x-cursor
    -The screen flashes back to the command-line thing
    -The X server starts and shows the x-cursor
    -The screen flashes back to the command-line thing...
    -... and stays there

    The only thing I can do from now is pressing Alt-F1 and login using the command line. It says:

    Boot from (hd0,0) ext3 c83d...1ef0
    Starting Up...
    Loading, please wait...

    kinit: trying to resume from /dev/disk/by-uuid/b28b...8d7)
    kinit: No resume image, doing normal boot...

    But when i try the command $kinit
    -bash: kinit: command not found

    xinit says:

    I solved the problem.

    I deleted all fglrx packages using aptitude, and everything worked again.
