Debian - Installing ATi Drivers

Posted 09-24-2009 at 03:34 AM by vince4amy

For a long time after Debian Lenny came out I couldn't figure out at all how to install the ATi drivers, I always had one missing dependency or another, but now I know exactly what dependencies are required to use the ATi driver on Debian.

Download the ATi Driver
Code:
wget https://a248.e.akamai.net/f/674/9206/0/www2.ati.com/drivers/linux/ati-driver-installer-9-9-x86.x86_64.run
Log in as Root
Code:
su
Install Dependencies
Code:
aptitude install linux-kernel-headers-amd64 build-essential
(Substitute amd64 for your kernel build)

Install the ATi Driver
Code:
sh ati-driver-installer-9-9-x86.x86_64.run
Run through all steps in automatic.

Configure the ATi driver with your xorg.conf
Code:
aticonfig --initial -f
Reboot
Code:
reboot
When you reboot your ATi drivers should work, you can verify this by running:

Code:
