ati proprietary drivers installation on Debian Squeeze 6.0.4 with a Radeon HD 6870


Hello,
I'm new in the Linux universe and I hope you can help me.
I've got Debian Squeeze 6.0.4, and I would like use the 3D with my Radeon HD 6870. So, I decided to install the ati proprietary drivers using these steps : http://wiki.debian.org/ATIProprietary.
But, similarly to this subject : http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...6870-a-888500/ , I get the error
Code:
aticonfig: No supported adapters detected
This : http://wiki.cchtml.com/index.php/Deb...ctober_2011.29 apparently solved the problem, so I tried it but I stuck at the first step :
Quote:
Download the driver and extract it thusly:
Code:
$ sudo ./ati-driver-installer-11-9-x86.x86_64.run --keep
I get an error :
Code:
sudo: ./ati-driver-installer-11-9-x86.x86_64.run: command not found
I don't really understand. Anyone can enlighten me ?
Thanks.

PS : sorry for the mistakes, I'm french

Have you changed your working directory to the directory to which you downloaded the driver? The driver can not be found by the shell, so it is very likely that the path you gave is not the right one. For example, when you downloaded the driver to the Download directory in your home the the correct path would be
Code:
~/Download/ati-driver-installer-11-9-x86.x86_64.run
Also keep in mind that the name of the installer and the version number changed, since that how to was written, double-check that.

You have to set the execution permission.

Code:
chmod +x ati-driver-installer-11-9-x86.x86_64.run
