== I'm going to modify the Method 2 for Catalysy 7.11 ==Signal me if there are some mistakesDone...done. Please test it! == Need update the topic to Catalyst 7.11 ==Can anyone update the installation method 2 to AMD Catalyst 7.11?The procedure is the same or not? Has hanyone tested it?  -> I just tested the procedure. It is the (nearly) same ...Found some issues till it worked for me.  sudo gedit /etc/init.d/ati-module-fix In ati-module-fix I replaced  ln -sf /lib/modules/$(uname -r)/misc/fglrx.ko /lib/modules/$(uname -r)/volatile/with ln -sf /lib/modules/$(uname -r)/misc/fglrx.ko /lib/modules/$(uname -r)/volatile/fglrx.ko after savig the file sudo chmod +x /etc/init.d/ati-module-fix In my installation gdm starts with sequence 13. So I did   sudo update-rc.d ati-module-fix defaults 12  "If you check the box to enable the restricted driver and reboot, it should work." If I check the the box in "resricted manager" the line DISABLED_MODULES="fglrx" in etc/default/linux-restricted-modules-common is changed back to DISABLED_MODULES=""I leaved it unchecked now.  So my "restricted manager" reports for the ATI driveractivated: no in use: yes  EDIT (subvertigo): doesn't work for me... then I solved removing the surrounding IF statement in the ati-module-fix ! Now it works!Can you explain me how find gdm sequence number (i don't know what it is). EDIT (exyll): Removing the IF statement does NOT work for me. On my system GDM is listed as 30gdm. You can retrieve the sequence number(s) by running the following statement:  ls /etc/rc2.d/
== Suspend/Hibernation with Catalyst 7.11 & Gutsy ==
I tried also to apply the patches to "acpi-support" (like doing with Feisty) but unsuccessfully.
Any working experiences? Solutions? Workarounds?
== Updated some information only applicable for Gutsy ==
I've updated some minor details about the fglrx-installation in Gutsy:
* By default, Gutsy (and Feisty too) now have Universe and Multiverse enabled
* The fglrx-version in Gutsy's linux-restricted-modules is 8.37.6 and not 8.28.8

== libGL error ==
* fglrxinfo gives: cannot open shared object file.
* Fixed with command:
sudo ln /usr/lib/ /usr/lib/
== installation hint ==
Any Ideas? It did work before (on feisty, using older drivers)!! Help!! --[[User:|]] 14:08, 22 November 2007 (CST)
NEW (by subvertigo):
I have the same identical problem (identical logs). Before with Feisty+8.43.2 or Gutsy+8.43.2 i had no problems... :-(
My pc is a Dell Inspiron 6400 with ATI X1400.
fglrinfo reports using Mesa drivers.
I tried to add or remove "fglrx" from /etc/default/linux-restricted-modules-common and it has no effects. The "restricted manager" signals that ati driver is not in use when fglrx is blacklisted. I don't understand if it have to be blacklisted or not.
I SOLVED (subvertigo):
So where this 1058754 bytes sized version exists on the system is unclear to me.
==Install .deb packages: ==
Update for the 7.11 article.
sudo dpkg -i xorg-driver-fglrx_8.42.3-1*.deb \
fglrx-kernel-source_8.42.3-1*.deb \
sudo dpkg -i xorg-driver-fglrx_8.433-1_i386.deb \
fglrx-kernel-source_8.433-1_i386.deb \
== (Partially) Installed but 7.11 Driver NOT used ==
