Hi -

Officially, ATI has always been a proprietary driver; AFAIK that hasn't changed recently.

These links might help:

http://www.rage3d.com/content/articles/atilinuxhowto/
http://www.phoronix.com/scan.php?pag...item=735&num=1
http://www2.ati.com/drivers/linux/linux_8.8.25.html

Hope that helps .. PSM

PS:
If you change your logon, perhaps "crap-at-breadmaking-knead-help" might be a good choice ;-)?

Please spell out your words and write clearly.

I take it you downloaded the ATI drivers from their website. At that same site, there are complete installation instructions. Did you read and follow them? Normally, you would do a chmod 755 on that file, then run it.....

Sorry, you're going to have to post a real error, other than "i didnt work". Write and spell clearly...

Step 1 is doing a chmod 755 on that file name...whatever file name you have, do it, "chmod 755 <filename>"
Step 2 is doing "./<filename>".

The 9.2 instructions are the same for 9.3...read and follow them...

got back
chmod: cannot access `ati-driver-installer-9-3-x86.x86_64.run': No such file or directory
and what is chmod 775

Hi -

Let's say you copied "ati-driver-installer-9-3-x86.x86_64.run" to directory "/tmp". TB0ne is suggesting you do this:
Quote:
1. Start a terminal window

2. Go to the directory with your .run file:
cd /tmp

3. Make sure it's really there:
ls -l chmod 755 ati-driver-installer-9-3-x86.x86_64.run
<= If it says "file not found", then you need to look for it in another directory! Or you've mistaken the file name...

4. Change it's permissions to make it executable:
chmod 755 ati-driver-installer-9-3-x86.x86_64.run
<= unlike DOS or Windows, simply naming a file ".exe" doesn't make it executable

5. Try running it:
./ati-driver-installer-9-3-x86.x86_64.run

... and, most important ...

6. Cut/paste any specific error messages you encounter
'Hope that helps .. PSM
