I’ve downloaded ati-driver-installer-10-3-x86.x86_64.run from the ATI driver site so that I may replace the existing fglrx driver I installed from the http://www2.ati.com/suse/11.2/ repository. I need some help getting this to install and work properly. My video card is the ATI Radeon HD 4550 and I’m running openSUSE 11.2 64 bit.
The release notes (PDF) say before attempting to install the ATI Catalyst Linux software suite, the following software must be installed:
- Xorg 6.8, 6.9, 7.0, 7.1, 7.2, 7.3 or 7.4
- Linux kernel 2.6 or above
- glibc version 2.2 or 2.3
- POSIX Shared Memory (/dev/shm) support is required for 3D applications
Running “X -version” told me I have X.Org X Server 1.6.5. This doesn’t seem to help. Perhaps I’m doing it wrong.
Running “uname -r” returns 126.96.36.199-0.2-desktop so that looks fine.
In YaST I checked the glibc version and it says 2.10.1-10.5-x86_64. I’m not sure if this is ok since the release notes specify 2.2 or 2.3.
Finally, I have no idea if POSIX is supported on my system.
Can you help me make sure I have the proper packages installed? I’ll need more help after this, but I need to get step one handled.
