    Default Installing The RadeonHD Driver On Ubuntu

    Hi
    I have a problem in order to install the driver how it's described on:
    http://www.phoronix.com/scan.php?pag...item=843&num=1
    when I try to run the command:
    ./autogen.sh --prefix/usr/

    I find the error:
    No such file or directory

    but I think to have installed all the packages required...

    Have you some suggestions?

    It sounds like you're forgetting to change to the directory where the driver source was downloaded.

    so make sure you "cd xf86-video-radeonhd" first.

    No it is correct, the debian dir name is different than when you compile is manually.

    Are you using files pulled from the git or the debian package?

    Hi Kano
    I tried also your suggestions on the link "Build fix for Debian[...]" but I haven't the solution :-(
    After that I have insterted the line:
    deb-src http://ftp.de.debian.org/debian sid main
    in the file specified, in the update manager I have an error with this message:
    W: GPG error: http://ftp.de.debian.org sid Release: the follow signatures aren't checked because the pubblic key is not available NO_PUBKEY A70DAF536070D3A1
    3

    Sorry..I'm not a developer and these are my first step on linux and Ubuntu.. :-)

    git-clone git://anongit.freedesktop.org/git/xorg/driver/xf86-video-radeonhd

    That's the one I used, and the install went fine, remembering to make the directory where the git files are located the active directory (cd xf86<tab><enter>) and remembering that

    make install

    has to be done as root (or sudo).

    curious....what happens when you do this (in a user level terminal window):

    cd xf86<tab><enter>
    git pull<enter>

    A gpg error is not fatal, basically just a warning, but you can use (after sudo -i):

    for k in $(apt-get update 2>&1|grep -o NO_PUBKEY.*|sed 's/NO_PUBKEY //');do gpg --recv-keys --keyserver wwwkeys.eu.pgp.net $k;gpg --armor --export $k|apt-key add -;done
