I tried to install the Ati driver (current version 9.6) following the official guide here:
Hardware - Installing ATI Drivers - openSUSE Forums
I’ve installed the entire “Kernel Development” package with all dependencies, as recommended in some other thread.
I’ve also installed the packages mentioned at the beginning of the guide:
zypper in kernel-source gcc make
I’ve then built the package for 11.1, which worked without problems.
However, if I then try to install it in a su terminal, it says it’s lacking dependencies:
rpm -Uvh fglrx64_7_4_0_SUSE111-8.62-1.x86_64.rpm
error: Failed dependencies:
libstdc++.so.5 is needed by fglrx64_7_4_0_SUSE111-8.62-1.x86_64
libstdc++.so.5(CXXABI_1.2) is needed by fglrx64_7_4_0_SUSE111-8.62-1.x86_64
libstdc++.so.5(GLIBCPP_3.2) is needed by fglrx64_7_4_0_SUSE111-8.62-1.x86_64
I already tried the following:
zypper in libstdc++
but that just tells me that libstdc++ is already installed.
What do I need to install to resolve the dependencies?
Sounds like someone else has been having the same trouble. This might be of help to you:
Strange problem with ATI driver (Page 4)
Hope this helps you resolve your problem!
Yes, I hope that as well.
If you still have the problem, let us know and we’ll help to find an answer for you.
I tried anything you should install listed in that thread, but still no dice… all the same missing dependecies >:(
I’m starting to lose patience with openSuse, had nothing but trouble so far.
the libstdc++ exists in different versions. the so.5 should be packaged with libstdc++33
have a look at Index of /distribution/11.1/repo/oss/suse to find the package. installing the 33 version could get you one step further …
ps.: choose the right one for your architecture (32bit -> i586, 64bit -> _x64)
Installed that libstdc++33, and it indeed did resolve the dependencies.
I then ran the rmp imstall, aticonfig and sax2 from a root init 3 command line:
rpm -Uvh fg(press tab to autocomplete)
aticonfig --initial -f
sax2 -r -m 0=fglrx
Sax2 launched its config server and asked me if I wanted to use the settings, and I agreed. The dialog disappeared, and Sax2 crashed with a frozen mouse pointer on its config screen, so I had to reset.
After the reboot, fglrxinfo reported Ati, but some things are still not right:
- when I move windows horizontally, the horizontal borders flicker wildly.
- the console and other apps still tell me that transparency is not supported (yet it works on my fedora 11 live usb stick)
- when I choose to reboot from the menu and clicked Reboot on the dialog, I got a screen full of colourful garbage.
Obviously, something went wrong :silly:
Somehow, openSuse just doesn’t want to work properly for me:
- first the stupid installer message about the supposedly inconsistent fs, which suddenly went away after I used a 3rd party partitioner to create unpartitioned space
- then the issue with mounting the disks
- ati installer won’t run at first
- then I have to hunt down all the dependencies
- now it still doesn’t run properly >:(
