    Firstly, we need more information on where you got that file. It looks like a source package that is used to generate a .deb installer. Normally the .orig.tar.gz files have an accompanying *.diff.gz file.

    How you'd go about it is (IF and ONLY IF it is a apt-source package):
    1. tar -xvf *whatever*.orig.tar.gz
    2. gunzip *whatever*.diff.gz
    3. patch -p0 < *whatever*.diff (without the gz extension)
    4. cd *whatever*
    5. sudo apt-get build-dep *whatever* (in this case, fglrx-installer)
    6. dpkg-buildpackage -rfakeroot *whatever* (in this case, fglrx-installer)

    You'll arrive at built .deb packages that you install.

    You will need a whole lot of other dependencies to be building deb packages (like dhmake).

    Before you do any of the above steps, please provide info on where you got your package and furthermore, never, EVER forget to read the README file for more information. Hope that helps.

          jesus christ.


          you take a driver that was originally released for ubuntu as deb package, but you dont take it the smart way, you get the source from somewhere?

          wtf. seems like a typical ubuntu problem

                Why in the world would you want to use fglrx 8.6 in Ubuntu 9.04?

                And why would you want to compile and install it manually, anyway?

                Catalyst 9.3 is in the repos, I think. Why not use that?



                [edit] I just noticed that you seem to think that 8.6 is the "latest" driver package... why would you think that? It's from June of '08.


                My mind is blown by this thread.

                  I think the reference is to 8.60, which IIRC is the internal version number for the driver bundled with Ubuntu 9.04 (the Ubuntu driver is based on an early version of our April release), ie Catalyst 9.4 will probably have an internal version of 8.60something.

                    Oh, aha.

                    Well, the question still stands... why would the OP want to manually compile this, if it's available in the repos for direct installation?

                      Yes, ATI apparently gave the Ubuntu guys a new unreleased cat driver w/X.org v1.6 support for 9.04 (Jaunty), which has been dumped into the repos. (Might even switch to the 9.04 RCs now...)

                          Well, duh... it's not for Intrepid. It's for Jaunty.

                              Basically it should work with intrepid too, as they use the x740 dir which means xserver 1.5+. They did not add a x750 dir.
