If you require help with installing the AMD fglrx driver, please consider a web forum or mailing list.

Cleanup

I did a little cleanup and formatting, and clarified the configuration section in Method 2. I inserted a comment about TexturedVideo on the newer cards for Xv, as well. I hope nobody minds. --Porter 08:11PM EDT 29 April 2008

I've also done a little cleanup on method two. I removed some extra steps that were not needed and rephrased some of the text so that it flows better. I also changed some incorrect statements. --Compwiz18 07:56, 22 May 2008 (CDT)

Updating a manually installed driver

Would it be good to add some notes on how to update the driver when new releases are available. I'm a little unsure of this myself; is it as simple as building the packages as per the instructions and doing the usual sudo apt-get install or is there more to it?

There is no auto-update routine as of yet. Upgrading will require a simple download, build, and install per the existing method. --Porter 02:10PM EDT 06 May 2008

OK, thanks. I should also mention I did a manual install on a clean install of Kubuntu Hardy - everything is fine but the restricted drivers GUI tool (jockey-kde) notes that fglrx is "In Use" AND "enabled". Shouldn't be any need to panic :)

"In USE" and "ENABLED" is also shown by Restricted drivers manager in Gnome after using the second manual instalation method. However, the driver works fine.

Problem with vboxdrv and fglrx

May it worth mention https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/fglrx-installer/+bug/284505/comments/14 at the bottom of the page ? I have been all day long looking for how to solve it!! :)

DISABLED_MODULES="fglrx"

With 8-10 driver and Ubuntu 8.04 is no more necessary to disable fglrx in the restricted modules. The package fglrx-modaliases_* , in fact, provides compatibility with Jockey and in the restricted drivers window, the driver appears as present and in use. --85.18.14.45 16:31, 6 November 2008 (UTC)
