== Installing from Debian Repository ==
NOTE the note is no longer valid info Wheezy is the stable Debian now.
NOTE: This no longer works on Wheezy/testing or Sid after upgrade to Xserver 1.12. Unfortunately fglrx/Catalyst trigger segfaults in Xorg newer than 1.11.x, and the driver was removed from Wheezy and Sid.
This package contains both the 32-bit and 64-bit driver.
$ cd ~/; mkdir catalyst{{Catalystversion}}; cd catalyst{{Catalystversion}}/
$ wget --referer=<nowiki></nowiki>{{Catalystdashversion}}
$ unzip amd-{{Catalystdashversion}}
$ chmod +x amd-{{Catalystdashversion}}
===Create .deb packages.===
this will not work on DebianYou can run <code>./amd-{{Catalystdashversion}} --listpkg</code> to get a list of all the potential packages
For Debian systems, <package> will be one of the following:
===''Install .debs.''===
$ sudo dpkg -i fglrx*.deb
== Jessie AKA TESTING ==
=== Jessie AKA TESTING Installation (November 10 2013) ===
current working driver in repo, that could change Jessie is testing jan 2014
fglrx was removed from the jessie repository due to incompatibilities with 1.14.
However you can manually install the [ 13.11 beta 6] version.
Do you use debian or Just do things to feel important, there has been a working fglrx in the repo for along time and the latest one is in experimental with in a week or two
mkdir ati
cd ati
apt-get build-dep fglrx-driver
apt-get -b source fglrx-driver
dpkg -i *.deb
== Wheezy Installation (current as of May 3, 2013) ==you must have the proper repo set in /etc/apt/sources
=== Wheezy AKA STABLE Installation (current as of May 3, 2013) ===Why someone posted this I do not have any idea 12.6 was shipped with Wheezy from day one,there is nothing to downgrade or change if you stay on the stable repo ,it just worksDEBIAN IS NOT UBUNTU and those directions will not work on debian, they just confuse people so if you dont use DEBIAN dont post< Everything below this was way before may of 2013 when Wheezy was the testing distro and Squeeze was stablecurrent as of may 2013 and your first comment is about 2012 are you new to Linux that makes the info stone aged. I find it odd this all got added after Wheezy was released with 12.6,because I was here and posted the info,and this post wasnt here, Do you work for Nvidia?Wheezy upgraded from xserver 1.11 to 1.12 on May 20, 2012. < you posted about something a year before LMAO<nvidia pay you for that> AMD has not updated their driver to work with this version of xserver. So, you have two options:
1) Downgrade from xserver 1.12 (Tested, and works on Debian Wheezy kernel 3.2.0-4-amd64 <shipped with Wheezy from day one (05/03/13) <was testing at the time Squeeze was stable and on Debian Wheezy kernel 3.2.0-1-amd64 (6/22/12) )

= Post Install =
Some people find that changes to xorg.conf don't get used by the driver. To force the ATI driver to adopt changes made to xorg.conf, use the following command:
$ sudo amdconfig aticonfig <nowiki>--input=/etc/X11/xorg.conf --tls=1</nowiki>
==Test your installation==
$ fgl_glxgears
If you experience issues or a hang, you may need to disable fast TLS.
$ sudo amdconfig aticonfig --tls=0
= Hardware Video Decode Acceleration (EXPERIMENTAL) =
== Debian wheezy/7.0 and Later ==
$ sudo apt-get install xvba-va-driver
Be very carefull when doing this, I wasn't paying much attention and all of a sudden aptitude decided that this package required a bunch of packages to be uninstalled(for instance a lot of tex packages, but more inconveniently GDM3...)
=Updating Catalyst/fglrx=
to your sources.list (or add a new file to /etc/apt/sources.list.d/)
$ sudo apt-get update
$ sudo apt-get -t squeeze-backports install linux-image-3.2.0-0.bpo.24-amd64
$ sudo reboot
