problems installing ati drivers
 
Hi,

I'm running debian testing
I have 2 x 3870 HD in crossfire

I got my drivers from http://ati.amd.com/support/drivers/l...ux-radeon.html

I installed the run file I got, and it all went well.
I rebooted and tried running catalyst.

then I get this error

there was a problem initializing catalyst control centr linux edition. it could be caused by the following.

No ATI graphics driver is installed or the ATI driver is not functioning properly. Please install the ati driver appropriate for you ATI hardware, or configre using aticonfig.

Any ideas what I should do ?


thanks in advance

This answer was posted in a similar qn:

cd /usr/local/bin;wget -Nc smxi.org/sgfxi;chmod +x sgfxi;sgfxi

Use at your own risk, i haven't tested it.
