Make catalyst build directory name include version
===''Download the latest Catalyst package.''===
This package contains both the 32-bit and 64-bit driver.
$ cd ~/; mkdir catalyst{{Catalystversion}}; cd catalyst{{Catalystversion}}/
$ wget http://www2.ati.com/drivers/linux/ati-driver-installer-{{Catalystversion}}-x86.x86_64.run
$ chmod +x ati-driver-installer-{{Catalystversion}}-x86.x86_64.run</pre>
== 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.
$ cd ~/; mkdir catalyst{{Catalystversion}}; cd catalyst{{Catalystversion}}/
$ wget http://www2.ati.com/drivers/linux/ati-driver-installer-{{Catalystversion}}-x86.x86_64.run
$ chmod +x ati-driver-installer-{{Catalystversion}}-x86.x86_64.run
(assuming that the installer is in the directory we used to install)
$ cd ~/catalyst{{Catalystversion}}
$ sh ati-driver-installer-{{Catalystversion}}-x86.x86_64.run --extract driver
$ sudo cp driver/packages/Ubuntu/dists/lucid/replacements/authatieventsd.sh /etc/ati/authatieventsd.sh
