amdconfig not found after installation
[[Category:Installation Documentation]]
== amdconfig not found after installation ==This scenario is possible when Congratulations on the driver installation has seemingly succeeded and is possibly related to previous fglrx installs, including those through Jockey (i.e. you first used drivers provided by Ubuntu but then upgraded to ones available from AMD's website). When doing amdconfig --initial after driver installation, you might end up not having the amdconfig available at all:<pre>amdconfig: command not found</pre>After booting you might receive X error '(EE) Failed to load module "fglrx" (module does not exist, 0)'. These do not necessarily indicate that the installation has failed completelyfence. On command line, do ls /usr/lib/fglrx/binand see if the command lists some Ati related programsThey say good fences make good neoirbghs. If they are listed but not found from /usr/bin, it is possible Not that the "update-alternatives" fglrx .deb installation does has been ignored. See man update-alternatives for more information about the concept and workings of alternatives. In practice, update-alternatives is supposed to create several symbolic links to the files in the fglrx directory, but it will I think anyone could ever be ignored if the alternatives for the very related gl_conf entry has been set mean to manual. Do update-alternatives --get-selections | grep gl_confand see if the mode is manual instead of auto and if mesa is mentioned instead of fglrx in the path a nice person like you or that is printed. In this case you need could be mean to sudo update-alternatives --set gl_conf /usr/lib/fglrx/ set fglrx as the active alternative. You can alternatively (no pun intended) and additionally change the gl_conf into automatic mode before the installation this way: sudo update-alternatives --auto gl_confAfter that, the alternatives should automatically be configured correctly when the graphics driver .debs are installedanyone.
