Use my script:
sudo rm -f /etc/X11/xorg.conf*
DISPLAY= sudo sh install-fglrx-debian.sh -z
I tried installing catalyst 10.9, but it fails to install, with the error:
in the make.log file, it says:Code:Error! Bad return status for module build on kernel: 2.6.32-25-generic (x86_64) Consult the make.log in the build directory /var/lib/dkms/fglrx/8.771/build/ for more information.
Any idea what goes wrong here? is there anything I can do? maybe change kernel?Code:DKMS make.log for fglrx-8.771 for kernel 2.6.32-25-generic (x86_64) Wed Sep 29 11:58:07 CEST 2010 AMD kernel module generator version 2.1 doing Makefile based build for kernel 2.6.x and higher rm -rf *.c *.h *.o *.ko *.GCC* .??* *.symvers make -C /lib/modules/2.6.32-25-generic/build SUBDIRS=/var/lib/dkms/fglrx/8.771/build/2.6.x modules make: Entering directory `/usr/src/linux-headers-2.6.32-25-generic' CC [M] /var/lib/dkms/fglrx/8.771/build/2.6.x/firegl_public.o CC [M] /var/lib/dkms/fglrx/8.771/build/2.6.x/kcl_acpi.o CC [M] /var/lib/dkms/fglrx/8.771/build/2.6.x/kcl_agp.o CC [M] /var/lib/dkms/fglrx/8.771/build/2.6.x/kcl_debug.o CC [M] /var/lib/dkms/fglrx/8.771/build/2.6.x/kcl_ioctl.o /var/lib/dkms/fglrx/8.771/build/2.6.x/kcl_ioctl.c: In function ‘KCL_IOCTL_AllocUserSpace32’: /var/lib/dkms/fglrx/8.771/build/2.6.x/kcl_ioctl.c:196: error: implicit declaration of function ‘compat_alloc_user_space’ /var/lib/dkms/fglrx/8.771/build/2.6.x/kcl_ioctl.c:196: warning: return makes pointer from integer without a cast make: *** [/var/lib/dkms/fglrx/8.771/build/2.6.x/kcl_ioctl.o] Error 1 make: *** [_module_/var/lib/dkms/fglrx/8.771/build/2.6.x] Error 2 make: Leaving directory `/usr/src/linux-headers-2.6.32-25-generic' make: *** [kmod_build] Error 2 build failed with return value 2
Thanks, I tried to, but got another error:

Well your system is messed up, but not by my script.
What distro are you running with, yesterday there was an update with Debian Squeeze that broke fglrx.
My own of course. Kanotix Hellfire works with fglrx as thats my script. irc://irc.freenode.net/#kanotix for more info. The script works with Debian.
I'm running Ubuntu lucid. It could be that I got that kernel update, but not quite sure what to do about it..
Okay I have some progress, I've now successfully uninstalled fglrx. I still can't install a new version though, as the install is broken on both 18.104.22.168 and 22.214.171.124 kernels. The only other kernel to which I can downgrade is 126.96.36.199, which I'm not sure is a good idea to do.
Strangely, I do still have 188.8.131.52 installed, on which fglrx does compile, but it also automatically try to install to either .24 or .25. Is there a way to prevent this? if so, I could only boot in that kernel for now.
... damn 1 minute limit...
for those interested: I solved the problems with synaptic by running the following
Code:sudo dpkg-divert --rename --remove /usr/lib/libGL.so.1.2 sudo dpkg-divert --rename --remove /usr/lib32/libGL.so.1.2 sudo dpkg --force-all --purge fglrx
