    Default Can not generate distribution package for AMD driver

    Hi friends,

    I have a little problem with installing an ADM graphic driver ( last release from official site ) on my system. If I try to install by generating distribution package, installation crashes. Here you can see my output: http://paste.debian.net/162489/. I had fglrx driver before, but I couldn't run 3D applications ( maybe it was badly installed? ), glxinfo gave me this:
    Code:
    name of display: :0.0 
    X Error of failed request:  BadRequest (invalid request code or no such operation) 
      Major opcode of failed request:  135 (GLX) 
      Minor opcode of failed request:  19 (X_GLXQueryServerString) 
      Serial number of failed request:  12 
      Current serial number in output stream:  12
    So I removed fglrx, totaly reinstall xserver-xorg ( now I don't have file xorg.conf ) and glxinfo "works" properly now - with examples like glxgears, but after glxinfo | grep renderer I get this:
    Code:
    OpenGL renderer string: Software Rasterizer
    which means, I don't have any graphic driver and more complex application can not run properly - for example, google-earth doesn't start, only print error log.

    Does someone know, how to fix my problem? I remember, that after installing my OS ( approximately one year ago ), all 3D applications work fine, but meanwhile I installed bad driver maybe. Since then it doesn't work. Detailed information about my OS and the machine:

    Computer is HP Compaq 6830s with graphic adapter ATI Mobility Radeon HD 3430

    Code:
    uname -a
    Linux debian 2.6.32-5-686 #1 SMP Wed Jan 12 04:01:41 UTC 2011 i686 GNU/Linux
    Code:
    lspci | grep VGA
    01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: Advanced Micro Devices [AMD] nee ATI Device 95c2
    If you need more info, just let me know. Thank you in advance for any hints.

    Default Solved

    Ehm, I am so sorry, but I fixed it - my friend told me that I should try this procedure --> http://wiki.debian.org/ATIProprietary#Squeeze and it works with fglrx properly ( google-earth works fine ). I wanted to delete this thread, but maybe it will help someone in future ( if you want, kindly delete this thread ).

    Hi Fico, did you look at Debian's wiki? It might help you create a Debian-specific package for fglrx...

    Cheers
