Thread: amd driver installer not working on 12.3

  1. #1

    Default amd driver installer not working on 12.3

    I did a fresh install on a Gigabyte MB with an onboard ATI RS880 / Radeon HD4200
    Downloaded, unzipped an ran it.

    First it complained about a missing file:

    After creating the dir /lib/modules/3.7.10-1.1-desktop/build/include/linux/
    and then creating the file version.h with

    #define LINUX_VERSION_CODE 198410
    #define KERNEL_VERSION(a,b,c) (((a) << 16) + ((b) << 8) + (c))
    The script ran through with the following error message generated in /usr/share/ati/fglrx-install.log

    Check if system has the tools required for installation.
    Uninstalling any previously installed drivers.

    It won't work, you need to use the OSS radeon driver from now on. See this thread
    Update your fglrx/fgrlx-legacy repositories

    Thanks for the quick response!
    I confirm it works now with the radeon driver. I could not set resolutions other than the defaults at first but that is solved now probably by rebooting.
