Basically, any game just crashes within fglrx_dri.so Since I have a 7950 card, open source drivers aren't the best solution, but a few more days of this, and I'll try to use them on a regular basis. Absoulte garbage (literary!)...
      Hmm...intresting... I have Ubuntu 64-bit and 7950..and I went from 13.4 drivers to 13.12 version.

      I had no problems with the installer (I see that others need a patch to get it to work...I didn't on ubuntu). And now I have no problems at all. THe 13.4 drivers were very stable but I had some problems with waking up from hibernate and poor game performance. Now I have had no problems at all with hibernate and I am gaming DOTA2 with fullhd and everything on high...And I just installed Metro: Last Light and got pretty good perfomance there aswell.

      Something probably went wrong when you installed the drivers... Happens to me both on windows and linux sometimes...and both with Nvidia and AMD.

        I checked 13.12 with HD6670 on my desktop platform and HD8400 + HD8550M on Kabini based notebook. Both platforms use Ubuntu 13.10. From my tests it looks like:
        1. Dynamic switching from HD8550M to HD8400 cause X crash at startup, so I have to use:
        amdconfig --initial -f -> HD8400 active
        amdconfig --initial -f adapter=all -> HD8550M active (when I switch to HD8400 in CCC, X will crash at startup, thats why I use this method just for HD8550M).
        2. Backlight doesn't work properly too on notebook.

        I didn't see other problems.

I actually experience LESS crashes with fglrx than Nvidia. My notebook has been up 5 days now, in that 5 days I have been using KDE, VLC, Steam (playing metro and psychonauts), multiple suspend & hibernation cycles, and I have experienced nothing distracting.
          I guess someday you'll find out that you've been installing catalyst, but you had an intel gpu all along

            And I had no problems at all with the installation and didn't need no patch to make it work.

            I noticed a big differance in performance on dota2....but that said, I had to admit that I only install stable drivers, so haven't used any beta drivers.
            I also upgraded from driver version 13.04 to 13.12 on Mint Maya (based on Ubuntu 12.04) using these instructions and had no problems. I notice major improvements on HalfLife 2. In particular, the anti-aliasing is fixed. With 13.04 any AA setting at all would totally kill the frame-rate, but now I can run 4x AA and keep frame-rate above 50fps at 1200x700 on my pretty modest AMD APU rig (with all other graphics settings maxed out). I'm very pleased

              I have a netbook somewhere that uses Intel GPU. That works well enough, as long as you don't try to exceed its abilities. Unfortunately it is really easy to do so

                I followed all the instruction but when I launch

                Code:
                sudo ./ati-installer.sh 13.251 --buildpkg Ubuntu/saucy
                it says

                Code:
                Error: Distro Version entered incorrectly or not supported, use --listpkg to identify valid distro versions
                and so, when I try to list the available package, with sudo ./ati-installer.sh --listpkg it says

                Code:

                --buildpkg [package] [--dryrun]               : if generatable, the package will be created
                --buildandinstallpkg [package] [--dryrun] [--force] : if generatable, the package will be creadted and installed
                --install                                     : install the driver
                Any idea ?

                  Try using 'sudo sh ati-installer*.sh --buildpkg Ubuntu/saucy' instead.

                    I downloaded the driver to try this and as the previous person said, you need to use "sudo sh *.run --listpkg" instead. That will tell you that the supported ubuntu-versions are:

                    Code:
                    	Ubuntu/gutsy
                    	Ubuntu/hardy
                    	Ubuntu/intrepid
                    	Ubuntu/jaunty
                    	Ubuntu/karmic
                    	Ubuntu/lucid
                    	Ubuntu/maverick
                    	Ubuntu/natty
                    	Ubuntu/oneiric
                    	Ubuntu/quantal
                    	Ubuntu/raring
                    	Ubuntu/source
                    	Ubuntu/precise
                    so...I guess you could use: "Ubuntu/source"...
                    ...but that seems like a big typo from them...
