When the installer fails to produce results, check the directory where the ati catalyst installer has been placed. If it contains international characters or spaces, weird errors will arise. (The issue has been reported to ATI some time ago, but even in the newest releases they seem to like to prefer to conserve the bug)
==X Server Related Issues==
No high- resolution video modes available === * Versions of the fglrx driver following 7.12 had problems with video resolutions higher than 1280 x 1024. The modes of the xorg. conf are simply ignored, and the server starts up e.g. with a resolution 1280 x 1024 ( even if this resolution is not defined in xorg.conf ) . This is particularly a problem on LCD displays. * [http://ati.cchtml.com/show_bug.cgi?id=160 This bug ] documents the problem; it is ''' fixed''' since driver version 8 . 2 * Looks like it reappeared again some version above ati- driver -installer-8-12-x86 . x86_64.run . Version ati- driver -installer-9.2-x86.x86_64.run, and ati-driver-installer-9-4-x86.x86_64.run has this bug. At least on integrated HD3200 card .
=== No XVideo support on 690G integrated graphic chipset ===
That seems to be solved when adding ""load "dri"" to "Section Module" of xorg.conf.
