Unable to install Catalyst 11.8 after using Ubuntu's restricted drivers option
I use ubuntu 11.04 64-bit.
If I use Ubuntu's restricted drivers option to install Catalyst drivers (11.4), then I am unable to install the 11.8 drivers later.
used the procedures from http://wiki.cchtml.com for Ubuntu
To make it clear:
1. use Ubuntu's restricted drivers option to install Catalyst drivers (11.4)
2. use the same program to remove the drivers then reboot
3. download 11.8 driver, generate packages for Ubuntu/natty and "sudo dpkg -i *.deb"
4. no aticonfig or amdconfig present (is it necessary to run this after installation anymore?)
didn't try rebooting to see if it worked (since I had already reinstalled and didn't want system to break again).
However, if I try installing the 11.8 driver directly after installing a fresh copy of Ubuntu, works flawlessly. I guess the restricted drivers procedure screws up some stuff?
