AMD Catalyst™ 13.4 Proprietary Linux x86 Display Driver


Hello Linux Users !!!

I'm having a problem regarding the install of my video card on ay Suse 9.2 pro,

system hardware
grp: Ati Radeon HD4600 (AGP) 1GB
cpu: Intel Pentium 3,08 GHZ
dim: DDR4
chipset: Intel 845i

Packages installed

- Xorg mesa lib
- libstdc++
- libgcc
- XFree86-libs
- fontconfig
- freetype
- zlib
- gcc

i unpacked amd-driver-installer-catalyst-13-4-linux-x86.x86_64.zip to amd-driver-installer-catalyst-13-4-x86.x86_64.run , i'm having trouble execute the run file with rpm or sh ./ (im receiving the message) " unknown file or map"
i haved searched for forums, but i did not find any related information.

i worked in a datacentre with unix/linux on very low low level, but i never had to install
a video card, because there where only servers. ahhh you dont wanna bother collegs with your sh*t , i never took steps to find it out.
jah that was 4 years ago, lost the job, i regret it very bad , every day, sh*t.

anyway i hope to find some linux friends here, and share alots of information.

Can someone please guide me true this proces? i need my grp to see some graphics, luckely e-mail is working in text mode.

Thanks in Advance,

there is step by step
there is no reason to be in just text mode if your using 9.2 pro as a server install the xorg server and you will be then running the linux version of the driver.

SuSE Linux 9.2 Pro is ancient and you shouldn't use that at all. At first, get yourself a recent version and install that, this will likely solve your issues (if you keep in mind that for the HD4000 series you need the legacy driver).

hello Drakeo and TobiSGD,

Drakeo, i can't open < http://www2.ati.com/drivers/linux/linux_cat92-inst.pdf > , it's like opening with firefox but doesnt load the graphical stuff. i see only a few tekst and that's it.
TobiSGD, jah i'm using suse 9.2 pro because i have this book from school of Sander van Vugt, and right now im studying redirection and piping, i can't just quit now. there
gotta to be an solution, oh my head itches, so i might consider installing bsd, suddenly i feel like the graphical part isnt important anymore, i dont know...

i cant sleep, seeing command lines everywhere....

while you guys are still here, i have a unrelated problem, but very serious,

ok ok, after i got hacked, i reinstalled with an new ip and os, immidiatly when i put ifup, i had a direct hit on TCP: failed connection attempts 1 ,
ok so i start trowing commands, but i could not see which ip is trying to attempt, var/log/ doesnt say anything about it except for the attempt.
do you guys know how to catch an ip on failed connection attempt ? < netstat and nmap didnt see sh*t >
this is like serious, because i went to the police (local) , and no one is telling me sh*t. perhaps i should wait, i dont know.

you think my modem is scripted? , i mean, if i hack (dont know how to hack) but if i did then jah, i would script the modem too.

you guys see what is happing in the world and stuff ? , i mean who is bugging who and who is bugging them and them, the bugger is getting bugged, and the lists is going on,
i have to take a break,
see ya guys maybe later,

( dont mind my story , im a little sick in the head )

There is: Use a supported OS. You also wouldn't try to run those drivers on Windows 98, wouldn't you? Piping and other commandline stuff will still work on a newer OS, so that is a non-issue.

Most likely you got an IP previously used by someone using a file-sharing program, like a Bittorrent client. This is not at all a hacking attempt, quite common and nothing to worry about.

you can try this one in lynx http://support.amd.com/en-us/download/incomplete. Like Tobi said that is a old system.
you may want to upgrade.

Most UNIX versions are not supported by AMD. You will get hardware support by FreeBSD in their upcoming release 10.0, but this is in a pretty early state and does not fully support your videocard (but enough for just learning commands). You probably may go for a UNIX-like Linux distribution, like Slackware (14.0 if you want the proprietary driver, 14.1 + newer kernel if you want to use the free driver), but basically the commands are the same on all Linux distributions (except variations in package management and init systems).

I just got news about the release of DragonFlyBSD 3.6 and as it seems it also has early stage support for AMD videocards, so if FreeBSD doesn't work out for you you may want to try that.
