Installation

Tips and Tricks

  • To build your own .deb packages for Ubuntu you will need to install at least the following packages from the apt repositories:
    • build-essential
    • module-assistant
    • fakeroot
    • dh-make
    • debconf
  • If you want to use a newer version of the driver than the one which comes with your distribution and you have linux-restricted-modules installed, you have to disable the fglrx kernel module from linux-restricted-modules because it will invariably get in the way of your more recent drivers. Detailed information on how to achieve this can be found in the distribution-specific guides.
  • You can configure the driver with the aticonfig tool, more information can be found at Configuring.
