    I've posted about this on the Ubuntu forums.

    Basically, though, you can unpack the installer into another directory by doing:

    ./ati-driver-installer-8.42.3-x86.x86_64.run --extract name-of-directory

    then extract the other archive that Michael linked to into the same directory (choosing to replace files)

    then, Cd into that directory and type

    sudo ./ati-installer.sh 8.42.3 --install

    (or ./ati-installer.sh 8.42.3 --buildpkg Ubuntu/gusty
    if you're following the Ubuntu wiki HOWTO)

      anyone having any issues running amdcccle?

      I had no problems with 8.40, but for whatever reason it just hangs upon execution with 8.42, never even paints a window, no error messages in terminal either.

        Crap I'm at work and cannot play with it yet.

        I was wrong about it being like DNF, now hopefully DNF will soon have a release date, and run in Linux!

          Good idea!

          This is a MAJOR update for most Radeon users! Maybe we can ask Michael nicely to post an article, with a step-by-step, screenshot filled instruction!!!

          Thanks in advance Michael! (waving frantically)

                Well this is the first version that didn't work with my X1550 at all. My monitor just showed "Signal out of range" with every configuration I tried.

                  Okay, looks like I was a little bit too fast, after testing with neverball and asuming everything else would work as expected, too. I did now fire up UT2k4 and when switching to a higher vertical resolution I do get graphic corruptions:
                  http://img132.imageshack.us/my.php?i...roblemsil1.png

                  This does not happen when being at small resolutions, only at higher resolutions and so far only in UT2k3. I would assume that it is kernel 2.6.23 related (since with 2.6.22.6 there was no problem). And I do get a nice message in the terminal after starting ut2k4:
                  Code:
                  WARNING: ALC_EXT_capture is subject to change!
                  Xlib:  extension "XiG-SUNDRY-NONSTANDARD" missing on display ":0.0".
                  Would be nice to see those problems fixed, might be that it is the combination of running ut2k4 with xorg 1.4 and a kernel 2.6.23 on gentoo...

                  (Just for reference: I am using a radeon 9800 pro (agp), c2d 6400, 1GB DDR1 ram, arch: x86)

                  EDIT:
                  Okay, I just verified that my problems can be solved by downgrading the kernel to 2.6.22.9. This change makes ut2k4 and fgl_glxgears work again, both were not working with kernel 2.6.23.1.
                  Okay, looks like I have basically the same problem with a 2.6.22.9 kernel so it is either xorg-server 1.4 or fglrx itself misbehaving with ut2k4. When using the older kernel the problems do only appear at bigger resolutions than before, with 2.6.23 everything > X x 800 did cause problems, not it is everything > X x 960. With this problem the game is unplayable at higher resolutions due to the whole bottom half being not visible clearly.

                  Beside this the driver really does work nicely in neverball and at smaller resolutions in ut2k4. Wine seems to work okay, too though I do not have any 3D games installed via wine, I can only test with CrazyMachines.

                    Well, so now it installs in Feisty 64 bit... but it seems to have broken Wine. Anything that tries to initialise 3d graphics seems to die - even playing Peggle Extreme from Steam now doesn't work (and it even segfaults doing it!).

                    Even 8.41.7 let me play Peggle!

                    • This is strange.

                      serkan@zoidberg ~ $ fglrxinfo

                      serkan@zoidberg ~ $ glxinfo | grep ATI
                      OpenGL vendor string: ATI Technologies Inc.
                      OpenGL renderer string: ATI Mobility Radeon X1600

                      serkan@zoidberg ~ $ glxinfo | grep GLX_EXT_texture_from_pixmap

                      GLX_SGIX_visual_select_group, GLX_EXT_texture_from_pixmap

                      AIGLX is enabled. Composite is enabled. 3d is working. I get ~5000 on glxgears and ~1000 fgl_glrx and yet:

                      serkan@zoidberg ~ $ compiz --indirect-rendering --replace gconf
                      compiz (core) - Fatal: GLX_EXT_texture_from_pixmap is missing
                      compiz (core) - Error: Failed to manage screen: 0
                      compiz (core) - Fatal: No manageable screens found on display :0.0

                      compiz does not work. This is on amd64 gentoo. Does anybody have any ideas?

                          • Oh, and I still can't use any display bigger than 1280x1024 (well, 1280x2253 according to Xorg.0.log), which is annoying since my LCD's native resolution is 1440x900 (I can force it with a modeline, but I get graphical corruption around the edges - precisely as if everything outside of a 1280pixel box is being mirrored).

                            I'm fairly sure X1950 Pros support this resolution in hardware...

                              Working with the Xpress 200M, with AIGLX. Few caveats I've noticed: While Beryl is running, Scrolling in Firefox (or anything) is horrendously slow. Postal 2 now runs at playable framerates (old drivers would barely get over 2fps). There are some rendering issues in Legends ( http://legendsthegame.net ) but it's probably just a bug(s) in the game.
