Fix Template
===''Download the latest Catalyst package.''===
This package contains both the 32-bit and 64-bit driver.
<pre>cd ~/; mkdir catalyst{{Template:Catalystversion}}; cd catalyst{{Template:Catalystversion}}/wget http://www2.ati.com/drivers/linux/ati-driver-installer-{{Template:Catalystversion}}10-6-x86.x86_64.runchmod +x ati-driver-installer-{{Template:Catalystversion}}10-6-x86.x86_64.run</pre>
===''Create .deb packages.''===
== Unsupported Hardware Watermark ==
This can happen if your card's PCI ID wasn't officially certified to work with a particular version of Catalyst. It does not necessarily mean that your card is unsupported, but it does mean that you shouldn't file bugs with that particular card/driver combination. If you installed the driver by downloading it from AMD/ATI, installing a newer version of Catalyst will probably help. If you installed the proprietary driver included with Ubuntu or you do not want to upgrade to a newer version, it may be possible to work around the issue by using a control file from a different version of Catalyst. I use Catalyst 10-6 in this example because it is the latest at the time this was written. If you use a later version, replace 10-6 with the new version.
<pre>cd ~/; mkdir catalyst{{Template:Catalystversion}}; cd catalyst{{Template:Catalystversion}}/wget http://www2.ati.com/drivers/linux/ati-driver-installer-{{Template:Catalystversion}}10-6-x86.x86_64.runchmod +x ati-driver-installer-{{Template:Catalystversion}}10-6-x86.x86_64.runsh ati-driver-installer-{{Template:Catalystversion}}10-6-x86.x86_64.run --extract driver
sudo mv /etc/ati/control ~/control.bak
sudo cp driver/common/etc/ati/control /etc/ati</pre>
<pre>sudo /usr/sbin/update-rc.d -f atieventsd remove</pre>
Before the above commands verify that /etc/ati/authatieventsd.sh exists after build and install, if not just do :
(assuming that the installer is in the directory we used to install)
<pre>cd ~/catalyst{{Template:Catalystversion}}sh ati-driver-installer-{{Template:Catalystversion}}10-6-x86.x86_64.run --extract driver
sudo cp driver/packages/Ubuntu/dists/lucid/replacements/authatieventsd.sh /etc/ati/authatieventsd.sh
sudo chmod +x /etc/ati/authatieventsd.sh</pre>
