View Full Version : [ubuntu] Got a problem with ATI and Ubuntu

September 21st, 2008, 07:21 PM
I wanted to Install my ATI HD2400 driver via Envy NG.
It worked but i had only a resolution of 640x480. That really sucked.
I uninstalled all components of Envy NG and Drivers.

Tried to install my driver manually (Tutorial wiki).
This is my installing "way":

1.sudo apt-get install build-essential debconf dh-make fakeroot gcc-3.3 libstdc++5 module-assistant

2.sudo apt-get install dkms

3.sudo apt-get install cdbs

4.chmod +x ati-driver-installer-8-9-x86.x86_64.run

5. ./ati-driver-installer-8-5-x86.x86_64.run --buildpkg Ubuntu/hardy

6.sudo module-assistant prepare
7.sudo module-assistant update
8.sudo module-assistant a-i fglrx
9.sudo depmod -a

But step nr.8 does not work.

The module asistant says "building package fglrx-kernel-source failed".

What can I do next? I am really fed up with installing that driver of my ATI HD 2400 :(
