sh ati-driver-installer-X-Y-x86.x86_64.run --extract X-Y
cp X-Y/common/etc/ati/control /etc/ati
i did this and nothing happened, im a real linux noob. i guess the cp command extracted the control from X-Y/common/etc/ati and then moved it to /etc/ati. But am i supposed to see immediate results?? or reinstall the drivers after? im using catalyst 8.12 and i have a 5870.
What is confusing about the current site ? You go to www.amd.com, there's a "Download Drivers" box right on the home page, enter "Graphics", OS, "Radeon" and your GPU, click on "View Results" and go straight to the 10.2 download page.
