Ubuntu Lucid Installation Guide

update for Catalyst 10.10
This package contains both the 32-bit and 64-bit driver.
$ cd ~/; mkdir catalyst{{Catalystversion}}; cd catalyst{{Catalystversion}}/
$ wget
There is a new security hotfix need as of 9/28/2010, as a Linux kernel security update broke the driver:
===''Create .deb packages.''===
$ sh --buildpkg Ubuntu/lucid
===''Install .debs.''===
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 $ chmod +x $ sh --extract driver
$ sudo mv /etc/ati/control ~/control.bak
$ sudo cp driver/common/etc/ati/control /etc/ati
