If you want to upgrade to the last driver provided by ATI you need to do a few things. 1) Download the driver as you said and set it to executable. This is perfectly correct.

This accounts for the seemingly bizarre error-message that xorg-driver-fglrx_8.476 is trying to divert to a file target that it, itself, has already diverted another file to! They're out to get me. Ensure I rebooted, which does thow you into nasty low res vesa mode. The fact that you can't use compiz is caused by this bug.
This is really frustrating. the trouble was, or is, that this driver is kind of slow. I think the desktop effects UI should give better feedback here if drivers are the issue, perhaps to the point of launching jockey to use alternate drivers.
I suspect that the person who wrote the script copy'n'pasted the line, remembered to edit the filename to divert, but forgot to change where it was diverted to. By Emmet Caulfield on April 30, 2008 9:18 PM Hi Chris, I'll look into this. I'm not sure if jockey is supposed to ask you if you want to use restricted drivers on startup of the live CD or not. Help?
Once that is done, install the 8.5 drivers and everything should work out OK. Removing xserver-xgl and enabling of compiz, and a quick reboot. Please reassign further as appropriate. If so, why?
Download page: Catalyst 15.12. Also the virtual directive above does not have a x between the numbers.Â I hope this helps someone else. Lots of gas. By Emmet Caulfield on May 2, 2008 12:19 PM Shelly, There's a fix suggested in in this Debian user forums thread.
Include the following lines without [...]: Section "Device" [...] Driver "fglrx" [...] EndSection Make the appropriate changes to "TexturedVideo" and "Overlay", etc., as described above in the "automatic section". his comment is here Uninstalling all fglrx items and all restricted items. Obviously to use the driver, you must set xorg.conf to use fglrx instead of ati. That is also something that would also make using desktop effects a bit easier. 2) Jockey isn't working - it's showing a blank list.
So be really careful in changing drivers and display settings --> backup your xorg.conf (/etc/X11/)!!!I my case - I have a HP Compaq nx8220 business notebook - I had to update Or, if Compiz stopped working due to "Composite" problem, check that the following is set in the /etc/X11/xorg.conf Section "Extensions" Option "Composite" "Enable" EndSection Check for AGP and DRI errors in Very low res screen, had the ATI control centre but compiz did not work. http://tbapplication.com/ati-drivers/ati-drivers-8-471-3.html This means that the system is using another version--ATI's new one) 4) Allow the fglrx module from ATI to be inserted into the kernel.

Martin Pitt (pitti) wrote on 2008-04-09: #11 I am currently at a conference without access to booting live CDs and computers which need restricted drivers, so I'm afraid I need some Either way, it seems that by using the fglrx driver my resolutions for my monitor are not being detected properly.

By chris on April 29, 2008 9:33 PM Thanks for your great script, the installation was sucessful! If it weren't for the fact this is a friend's computer I'm working on here (and being stuck with a RAdeon 7500 in my Inspiron) I'd never use another ATI card Here's the error: WARNING: modinfo for module fglrx failed: modinfo: could not find module fglrx WARNING: modinfo for module nvidia_new failed: modinfo: could not find module nvidia_new WARNING: modinfo for module http://tbapplication.com/ati-drivers/ati-drivers-8-4.html If you think it would be helpful, I could describe it in more detail.
See Pre-Installation. Reproduce in Hardy Alpha 5 and 6 Live CD 2) What you expected to happen Boot into live CD. There is little documentation available on this tool. This usually meant that there were two or more configurations for the same screen/device with the same identifier.
Removing Mesa drivers If fglrxinfo reports that Indirect rendering by Mesa is in place, even though you have installed ATI driver, check: Remove the package xserver-xgl. This is because of a dependency of the amdccle package on 32 bit libraries. Additional 64-bit instructions If you have a 64 bit install, the above dpkg command may complain that "Errors were encountered while processing: fglrx-amdcccle". the system gets slow and only thing is to close xine.
Installing Ubuntu, then running Jockey on the installed system worked fine. Run in a terminal: Terminal Command $ uname -r If the output starts with 2.6.22 or below you are not using the current kernel and the Ati drivers will not load To revert, you just go backwards and undo everything. Not working for HD 3850) Section "Extensions" Option "Composite" "Disable" EndSection Section "ServerFlags" Option "AIGLX" "off" EndSection Resume from suspend failed when using dual monitor configuration in xorg.conf.
Thankfully, over the last few years, this has changed quiet a bit with many hardware vendors releasing open source versions of their drivers or opening their specification to such an extent There guides also help you solve a problem where if you tried to logout, restart or shutdown from X, X with hang with basically 100% kernel-time cpu usage. So why is there no restricted driver manager? It seems that the postrm script is similarly "challenged", but I didn't know this until Chris (below) brought it to my attention.
