    Exclamation Fglrx under 12.04

    For my machine I need the very most up-to-date drivers from AMD's website. The install instructions located on this page http://wiki.cchtml.com/index.php/Ubu...TI.27s_site.29 just plain no longer works under 12.04 (worked fine under 11.10). As far as I can tell its a problem with dependencies, something to do with gcc. Although this is just a guess, my knowledge of this sort of stuff is mediocre compared to others. Anyone have any better luck with fglrx under 12.04, and how?

    im running 12.04 ,Fglrx is running and working no problem ..

    not sure if you did a clean install or upgraded, if you upgrade and install (apt python-apt) before the upgrade and all runs fine from the start ..

    Use fglrx from the repo. It's Catalyst 12.4 beta.

    Re: Fglrx under 12.04

    At this point they are the same. You can check with either Synaptic (search for fglrx and compare fglrx with fglrx-updates) or with apt-cache policy:

    $ apt-cache policy fglrx
    fglrx:
    Installed: 2:8.960-0ubuntu1
    Candidate: 2:8.960-0ubuntu1
    Version table:
    *** 2:8.960-0ubuntu1 0
    500 http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ precise/restricted amd64 Packages

    $ apt-cache policy fglrx-updates
    fglrx-updates:
    Installed: (none)
    Candidate: 2:8.960-0ubuntu1
    Version table:
    2:8.960-0ubuntu1 0
    500 http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ precise/restricted amd64 Packages

    --edit
    How did you install from the AMD site? Did you uninstall them before trying Jockey?

    This bit should tell more:
    Code:
    Error! Bad return status for module build on kernel: 3.2.0-23-generic (x86_64)
    Consult /var/lib/dkms/fglrx-updates/8.960/build/make.log for more information.

    Tried post release with a fresh install... didn't work. Retried using the non post release and it worked! Thanks for the help guys! I'll mark as solved.
