  • "AMD Unsupported software" icon displayed

    OK, I've had this error for weeks and it's driving me nuts.
    There's an icon in the lower right corner saying "AMD Unsupported software" and I can't get rid of it. I am very new to linux, so if anyone wants to help me, please give me step-by-step instructions

    I've got Fedora 10 and gfx card AGP Radeon HD 2600 XT.

    I've read this:
    http://www.phoronix.com/scan.php?pag...item&px=NTkyMg
    ...but the file /etc/ati/control isn't missing and i don't know where common/etc/ati/ is.

    I've read this:
    http://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?pid=492862
    ...which is interesting because the guy has exactly the same card as I do.
    Anyways, I can't find catalyst-utils-8.12-1-i686.pkg.tar.gz NOWHERE!!! I've searched the web and I only find broken links. I've tried http://ati.amd.com/support/drivers/l...ux-radeon.html , but there's only the .run version. I also find it stupid, to degrade my version of catalyst utils, but anyways, better to degrade it than be annoyed by the icon.

    Btw, if I remember correctly, I installed my software using this page: http://www.my-guides.net/en/content/...eo_drivers_ati (ATI driver) and this http://ati.amd.com/support/drivers/l...ux-radeon.html.

    First I've installed version 8 of catalyst-utils, when my fedora automaticly updated itself the error appeared.

    Please help me, because I'm getting really annoyed by the icon and I've been searcing for a solution for weeks =)
    Oh, and like I said, please give me step-by-step instrucions, because I'm still learning linux =)

    Thanks!!
Working...
