Unhappy Installation of ATI Radeon graphics driver( HD 4330)


Hi!
Im a total newbie to linux. My laptop Dell Inspiron 14 has an ATI radeon HD 4330 graphics card. I had trouble with the card's performance in Ubuntu 10.04. Videos appeared slightly choppy, not too much, but enough to make me want to switch to Win 7, where it worked like a charm..
Tried upgrading to 10.10 as suggested by some friends, but to no avail. Finally, I tried updating the driver. Downloaded the latest version from ATI website(Catalyst 11.3). I followed the following site for this procedure:
http://wiki.cchtml.com/index.php/Ubu...talyst.2Ffglrx

But after the following command's(sh ati-driver-installer-11-3-x86.x86_64.run --buildpkg Ubuntu/maverick) execution, got the following errors:-
ashwin@ashwin-laptop:~/catalyst11.2$ sh ati-driver-installer-11-2-x86.x86_64.run --buildpkg Ubuntu/maverick
Created directory fglrx-install.1tuSe2
Verifying archive integrity... All good.

Kindly help me out!! The above output was obtained, when I tried it out with 11.2, since 11.3 didn't work out...
I've been in front of the laptop since last 5 hours.
Thanx to all, and Good night..

You need to install the QT library.

I too have the video problem, and have found two workarounds : don't look at videos fullscreen, or use the open radeon driver (xf86-video-radeon).

It's a pity that so many people are unaware of the poor Linux-support from Ati. I bought a laptop with nVidia graphics, because nVidia always works great with Linux.
Next time you buy a laptop make sure that it has a nVidia graphics chip.
My advice for your problem is to Google ...

Another thought crossed my mind : try playing aroubnd with xv settings. xv is the video overlay in which videos are displayed. Enabling/Disabling it might help.Where to do that depends on your video player.

I beg to differ, its getting much better very fast : for one ATI support the xrandr extension, making your display configurable through desktop utilities (BIG +) ; second ATI releases documentation to their hardware, and employ ?two? (at least one) developers of the free (as in speech) radeon driver. Granted its not yet feature-complete, but at least provides a quite good out of the box experience. This is one of the reasons I bought ATI (and because it had the best bang for the buck). Call me a fanboy if you wish

No disrespect, but that doesn't help much.

The opensource driver has improved but If your looking for 3d performace you are still going to need propriatary drivers

What Linux distro are you using. Their should or normally is a configuration tool that reconfigures your /etc/X11/xorg.conf for you. You can take a look at the file your self and see if you understand. But where driver is you would take out the fglrx and put in ati if the driver module is already on your system.
