    Default Catalyst shit 12.3 - Can help me with install ???

    I'm redirected here from amd shi* forum....... i hope i can found a solution here :

    I have try to install so many time the ATI Catalyst 12.3 on Ubuntu 11.10.
    First time i have try with kernel 3.0.0.-12,17,19 etc etc without success!! now i have try to upgrade to 3.3.1 and retry again but on every kernel i try i have the exact same problems!

    I have read so many guide... the latest i have read this:
    http://wiki.cchtml.com/index.php/Ubu...TI.27s_site.29
    But not working!

    I have created correctly the 3 file .deb....... but during the installation of this i obtain this:
    Code:
    diabolik@Diabolik-ubuntu:~/catalyst12.3$ sudo dpkg -i fg*.deb

    Exclamation I have the same problem!

    I'm trying to get my Linux Mint 12 KDE up and running, but have the same issue as the above guy (identical error messages). I tried running it from single user mode (on the advice of a friend), but the same error popped up. The default driver installed at the moment is OK, but moving windows around the screen can be very glitchy (sticking graphics, undrawn window contents).

    I downloaded the AMD driver installer from their website ( file name is amd-driver-installer-12-3-x86.x86_64.run )

    I'll post my error details if needed, but they're essentially identical to the original guy's.

    Help would be appreciated!

    it's possible that the file might be corrupt, did you try downloading again?

    Yes... i have try to redownload after i reinstall ubuntu 11.10 with default kernel and obtain same problems!

    I have found online a 12.4 beta driver for linux but same problems.......

    i thinks the AMD linux driver have a shit support.

    For moment i need to use the graphics accelleration and i'm back to use windows...... the same versione 12.3 on windows working without problems!
    In two or three week i buy another hd to add sata on this pc and i can try to obtain a dual boot UBUNTU + Windows 7 X64

    Some member from another site have invite me to use the X64 version because with my same videocard (a ATI 4650) use the 12.3 driver without problems.

    For ubuntu you can try my script:

    http://kanotix.com/files/install-fglrx-debian.sh

    use -z option then reboot. i do not test u with it all the time however, but usually every new release, so it should work. default is 8.96 (12-4 beta).

    compared to nvidia drivers fglrx is still very bad... tried rage with it and my hd 5670 and to lots of bad textures. also crossfire does not help at all, heaven is as slow as without and i never got a crossfire logo (aticonfig --cfl on) even when cf was active...

    Default Mine is working!

    So I got mine to work, in a fairly round about way...

    I ran the script that the previous poster put on, and it downloaded the beta driver... Then my system wouldn't start up again properly. Eventually I figured how to boot in "Single User" mode from the Grub - Google it, it's not too hard Then I tried to run the 12.3 driver I had downloaded before, and it complained that I needed to uninstall the driver that was already on. It mentioned that if you want to force the driver to install regardless, you can add a --force parameter. I did that, and now it's working perfectly!

    If it doesn't work for you, send me a message and I'll give you more detail on exactly what I did.

    Did you really run the script with -z option?

    Admittedly it was a couple days ago that I ran it, so I can't remember whether or not I used the -z option, but I imagine I would have followed the instructions... Now sure now

    If you have got an install with loaded fglrx module but borken userspace it would try to stop the xserver and install it then. that will not work in most cases. Usually you break ubuntu when you run the installer without buildpkg option. the next ubuntu update will kill it when it tries to install the fglrx driver via jockey.

    A small (huge?) caveat... The next time I restarted my machine, it got stuck. I was only able to get back in after going back into Single User mode, and reinstalling the 12.3 driver (with the --force command again). Now it's running again, although I'm a little scared to restart it :P
