    Default Ugly Watermark Issue "AMD Unsupported hardware"

    I updated yesterday from the official Ubuntu ATI drivers to the just released 9.1 and I got this ugly watermark now saying "AMD Unsupported hardware" and I can't get rid of it! It's driving me nuts! I already tried to solve it by replacing /etc/ati/control and /etc/ati/signature with the new, correct versions (using --extract on the installer) but no go.

    OS: Ubuntu Linux 8.10 x86
    GPU: 01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: ATI Technologies Inc M26 [Radeon Mobility X700 XL (PCIE)]

    I installed using these commands:
    chmod +x ati-driver-installer-*.run
    ./ati-driver-installer-*-x86.x86_64.run --buildpkg Ubuntu/intrepid
    dpkg -i fglrx-kernel-source_*.deb
    dpkg -i fglrx-amdcccle_*.deb
    dpkg -i fglrx-modaliases_*.deb
    dpkg -i libamdxvba1_*.deb
    dpkg -i xorg-driver-fglrx_*.deb
    rm -R *fglrx*
    rm *amd*
    There are no other problems however. I just want to get rid of the watermark.
    Any (other) suggestions?

    You can use the control file from another driver which had no watermark.

    Thanks - that worked!

    I extracted the 8.12 control file and use that one now.

    Btw. you see the PCI ID only with

    lspci -nn

    not pure lspci.

    When I execute `lspci -nn | grep ATI` I get
    01:00.0 VGA compatible controller [0300]: ATI Technologies Inc M26 [Radeon Mobility X700 XL (PCIE)] [1002:564f]
    What is it needed?

    1002:564f means:

    Vendor 1002 = ATI

    Product 564f

    Interestingly that ID is inside the fglrx_drv.so which I parse to get the whitelist for my script. Why ATI does not allow that ID in the control file I absolutely have no idea. That signature/control check is just crap to annoy users without deeper knowledge.
