    The good thing is, I made it two days ago with a fresh installation (driver and xorg.conf).
    The bad thing is that after installing some updates (about 200 ) I have the same problem as before (page 5). Of course i could install new again, install the updates and then set up the driver, but then I will be scarred at any new update . Have any one of you problems with updates? What would you advice me?
    How did you install the driver? If you update your kernel and the driver doesn't work right, that probably means something went wrong with building the new kernel module using dkms (or you didn't have dkms set up properly).

    Hi there !
    Im running 6870 on 10.10 and scrolling in browser killing my CPU
    fglrx installed but
    $ glxinfo | grep direct
    direct rendering: No (LIBGL_ALWAYS_INDIRECT set)
    3d works fine and glxgears is running smooth
    $glxgears
    31326 frames in 5.0 seconds = 6265.198 FPS
    31509 frames in 5.0 seconds = 6299.018 FPS

    Any ideas?

    Hey
    I only made the .sh executable and double-clicked it^^
    Is there something else to do?

    This method builds packages and ensures dkms is enabled so that kernel updates automatically transfer the fglrx kernel module from the old kernel.

    Re: AMD HD 6850 drivers

    Hey,
    I have one last problem. This evening I was short before to write a thankyou-note here because, everything was Ok in Linux Mint Debian Edition 32bit (Ubuntu always crashed the instalation), except the watermark. And because
    Code:
    #!/bin/sh
    DRIVER=/usr/lib/xorg/modules/drivers/fglrx_drv.so
    for x in $(objdump -d $DRIVER|awk '/call/&&/EnableLogo/{print "\\x"$2"\\x"$3"\\x"$4"\\x"$5"\\x"$6}'); do
     sed -i "s/$x/\x90\x90\x90\x90\x90/g" $DRIVER
    done
    didt'work, I tried

    Code:
    #!/bin/sh
    DRIVER=/usr/lib/fglrx/xorg/modules/drivers/fglrx_drv.so 
    for x in $(objdump -d $DRIVER|awk '/call/&&/EnableLogo/{print "\\x"$2"\\x"$3"\\x"$4"\\x"$5"\\x"$6}'); do
     sed -i "s/$x/\x90\x90\x90\x90\x90/g" $DRIVER
    done
    And now I always end up in the shell after booting.

    Is there any way to get this undone? Thank you very much .

    Re: AMD HD 6850 drivers

    Yes, you can reinstall the .debs you built:

    Code:
    cd ~/catalyst11.1 ; or whatever directory you put them in
    sudo apt-get install --reinstall fglrx*
    The hack was specific to Catalyst 10-12, so I removed it from the wiki. Sorry about the inconvenience.

    Ok, thank you.

    Is it possible to get rid of the watermark with Catalyst 11.1?
