amd propietary (13.2 beta 3) debian 6.06


Anyone know how to install them? There is an unoffical wiki but it is out of date and hard to figure out which parts to utilize.
http://wiki.cchtml.com/index.php/Debian

I've downloaded the zip containing "amd-driver-installer-catalyst-13.2-beta3-linux-x86.x86_64.run". But I don't know what to do with it

AMD HD7950 southern islands. But the driver covers 5k-8k IIRC.

Also been looking here: http://wiki.debian.org/ATIProprietary
But that seems out of guide also.

For a while amd didn't have a driver compatible with debians xorg version but this beta driver should work.

You can just use synaptic & let it install it for you

How is this guide, and the last one you mention, out of date? Considering this one is for Squeeze (which you are using), Wheezy, and Sid I'd suggest that you follow the instructions in it before you say it isout of date.

Honestly I was using debian about 9 months ago, that guide did not work. And I was told it didn't work because the amd driver did not support debians newer xserver/xorg. The guide hasn't been changed since then. Maybe it will be different this time because amd has a newer driver out, but i'm not sure the guide would cause the newest driver to be loaded or not.

Get to aticonfig --initial.

Just kill me

I'd like to know if anyone else has managed to do this. What has worked for them. I can stumble through old guides forever...

I believe the latest beta driver directly from AMD should be compatible, but I have no idea how to install. I also have no idea what version this guide is trying to set me up with.

The driver in the Squeeze repos is simply to old to know your card, but you can try the driver in the experimental repos, that should work.
Alternatively, just run the installer with
Code:
chmod +x amd-driver-installer-catalyst-13.2-beta3-linux-x86.x86_64.run
./amd-driver-installer-catalyst-13.2-beta3-linux-x86.x86_64.run
and let it install the driver.
Be aware that in case of a kernel upgrade you will have to re-install the driver, if it is installed this way.
