  • Problems Installing AMD Catalyst 11.2 driver

    Hi. I have a Radeon HD 4850 video card. I use a Ubuntu 10.04 (Lucid) based distribution.

    I get errors while installing the latest AMD Catalyst 11.2 driver. I recognized them after while trying to install driver from command line. (without X)

    Here is the fglrx-install log:

    Creating symlink /var/lib/dkms/fglrx/8.821/source ->

    DKMS: add Completed.
    You can use the --kernelsourcedir option to tell DKMS where it's located, or you could install the linux-headers-2.6.35-24-generic package.
    [Error] Kernel Module : Failed to build fglrx-8.821 with DKMS
    [Error] Kernel Module : Removing fglrx-8.821 from DKMS

    Deleting module version: 8.821
    completely from the DKMS tree.

    Xorg.0.log (only errors)

    And complete Xorg.0.log :

    Any ideas? I didn't choose the option to generate *.deb packages because i thought that it may broke packages. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks..

    It seems your distribution backported the Ubuntu 10.10 kernel. Anyways, try:

    sudo apt-get install linux-headers-generic and install again.

      Hi. linux-headers-generic package is already installed. I retry to install driver but it gives the same error messages. and uname-r output gives 2.6.35-24-generic. i may post the log files again but they are exactly same
