How to install ATI Catalyst Driver 11.6 on Ubuntu Linux 11.04 Natty Narwal
Finally I installed ati catalyst 11.6 on my Ubuntu 11.04. I just want to tell you how to install this thingy. Because it’s very tricky!
First of all, spend several days to download it! Because every time I tried the link seemed to be broken and suddenly it worked and I was able to download it with my firefox browser.
They I copied it into my root home folder /root.After that, I used commands below to install it:
apt-get install debhelper devscripts execstack dh-modaliases
chmod +x ./ati-driver-installer-11-6-x86.x86_64.run
Do you agree with the license? [Y/n] Y
Please enter the installation path [/] (Just hit enter here)
Option: ‘RedHat Packages’ ? [Y/n] n
Option: ‘SuSE Packages’ ? [N/y] N
Option: ‘Build package for detected OS: Ubuntu/natty’ ? [N/y] y
dpkg -i *.deb
That was all. Remember that I spend several minutes running the installer, answering questions, seeing it’s error message, reading it’s log file, understanding that some command is not found, finding related package, installing it using apt-get, and running the installer again and again! What can I say to AMD developers? :-w
