Question Ati Driver Extraction Keeps Failing


I've redownloaded the thing 3 times any ideas?

root@nitro:~# cd /home
root@nitro:/home# ls
ati-driver-installer-8.16.20-i386.run fglrx-install/ ftp/ lost+found/ scott/
root@nitro:/home# sh ati-driver-installer-8.16.20-i386.run
Creating directory fglrx-install
Verifying archive integrity... All good.
Uncompressing ATI Proprietary Linux Driver-8.16.20............................................................................
.................................................................................................... .................................................................................
.................................................................................................... ................................................................................
.................................................................................................... Extraction failed.
Signal caught, cleaning up
root@nitro:/home#


Not sure what I'm doing wrong. :[

Thanks in advance for any help.

This looks like it could be a corrupted download. Did you verify the md5sum?

I didn't think I could do an md5sum check on it. I thought you could only do that on an iso.

You can perform an md5sum of any file. The source of the file should provide you with the matching md5sum to compare against.
