Installing ATI driver on 10.1


I get a permission denied whenever I try to install the ATI driver, I followed the instruction from the ATI webiste.

Downloaded the rpm for XFree86 4.3 and the ATI installer in the same folder Home/ATI

but this is what I get

[root@localhost ati]# ./ati-driver-installer-8.14.13.run
bash: ./ati-driver-installer-8.14.13.run: Permission denied

What am I suppose to do to install it?

you can put an 'sh' before to run it. Like this:

Code:
sh ati-driver-installer-8.14.13.run
OR, you can 'chmod' the file to make it run. LIke this:

Code:
chmod +x ati-driver-installer-8.14.13.run
./ati-driver-installer-8.14.13.run
Hope this helps.

Creating directory fglrx-install
Verifying archive integrity... All good.

An installer should start like described here

What am I doing wrong?

was wondering if you have the kernel source installed if you dont the driver might not install. check to see if you have that and then also i would download the drivers again and then try it .

Ok, first of all Fabre, you I would like to recommend you to a thread I made on the lq board not long ago, which helps with installing ATI, on 10.2, but I suspect it won't be much different for 10.1, seeing as the two OS' are so similar.

The first thing I would recommend doing is, upgrading your current version of which, if you haven't upgraded it yet, it should be X.org 6.7.0-3 to the latest version currently available, using Mandrake Linux Update.

after you've done that, have a look at this thread:
http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...hreadid=339515

It was a huge help me to, and I would like to take this time to thank all the people who made it all possible, in the original thread, currently hosted on www.driverheaven.net; without them, I would have been lost forever.
