  • buildpkg fails on hardy

    hi all,
    i just rried to install 8.01 on a hardy testinstall, but the installer can't generate the appropriate packages. has someone a hint?

    here's the output:

    Code:
    [email protected]:/usr/src$ sudo sh ./ati-driver-installer-8-01-x86.x86_64.run --buildpkg Ubuntu/hardy
    Created directory fglrx-install.T17267
    Verifying archive integrity... All good.

    I'm getting the same error on a fresh hardy install with an X800.

      This looks like the problem I was having in Debian/lenny. I bet my solution will work for you: http://www.phoronix.com/forums/showthread.php?t=7431

        you bet it worked much thanks for the hint!

        the only thing to evaluate now is:
        should i install a driver that's so poorly packaged or should i buy a 8800?
        but *thats* another story....

        thanks again!

          The driver isn't poorly packaged, it works very well. It is specified for a particular set of distributions, and you aren't using one of those. I'm not sure how you can construe that as a failing on the part of ATI.

            My script has a workaround for the issue, just use it.

              At Phorogit.com are updated Ubuntu scripts.

                I highly doubt that these work. Did not try it on hardy but on AMD64 sid. Debian target is also broken with "normal" use.

                  well... i KNOW what i speak off, cause i use ATI hardware for a couple of years now with linux. to be specific, since redhat 9, which came out in 2003. so then let me conclude, that i am perfectly aware of what to expect when dealing with ATI GPUs in linux.

                  it's just frustrating that, while i'm in the process of buying a new computer, i thought i would get a 3850, cause this card is a good bang for the buck. but: i use linux 99% of the time (windows/gaming is just a small part of my digital life), and it's no fun seeing that many flaws coming with the drivers.
                  i think i should switch. even if the alternative is way more expensive...

                    You can get rid of many problems if you don't use a xserver 1.4 based distro. My own distribution (KANOTIX) has even only Xorg 7.1.1 (etch) and is much more stable than lots of others - just don't try beryl with ATI there... ATI drivers really dislike anything newer than Xserver 1.3 - so gutsy would be one possibility. hardy or sid is currently no good choice.
