= Read Me Second :SLEEP mode in Debian/testing kernel 3.2.0 =
 
amd-driver-installer-catalyst-12.10-x86.x86_64.run breaks sleeping mode(notebook hangs up after awaking and reboot without logging anything ). I suppose it is because atievetsd not working correctly. So i first install last fglrx-atieventsd packet and over it amd-driver-installer-catalyst-12.10-x86.x86_64.run. ( Or first
amd-driver-installer-catalyst-12.10-x86.x86_64.run and then manualy copy rest conf files from fglrx-atieventsd
without overwriting.) Then start atieventsd : "service fglrx-atieventsd restart" and put this command in
autorun files.
 
Next step - check /var/syslog if there would be "atieventsd[3141]: Unable to bind control socket to
/var/run/atieventsd.socket: Permission denied " - then it need be run by root.
 
After this sleeping mode become work correctly but only sometimes. Research is to be continued.
Good news is that many 3d games are well playing with sound on wine-1.5.6.
 
UPDATE:
It seems it works correctly. Clean install amd-driver-installer-catalyst-12.10-x86.x86_64.run on Debian/testing kernel 3.2.0 i386.
But after upgrading libxi6 to stable version (apt-get install -t stable libxi6).
Old version have made problems with wine games , something like "malloc() corruption memory" and segfault.
New version amd-driver-installer-catalyst-13.1-linux-x86.x86_64.run and fglrx-driver_12-6+point-1_i386.deb i havenot test.
 
= Installation =
$ wget <nowiki>http://www2.ati.com/drivers/linux/amd-driver-installer-</nowiki>{{Catalystdashversion}}-x86.x86_64.run
$ chmod +x amd-driver-installer-{{Catalystdashversion}}-x86.x86_64.run
 
Interestingly enough, as I test this (October 6, 2012), it seems that AMD have started releasing the driver as a *.zip file. The current version can be found here :
