Another release, another fglrx tracking thread.
AMD have just released their beta 12.11 drivers. While Quantal (and as such Raring) has working drivers in the repos (for HD5k+ cards) the AMD release is a little newer (fglrx 9.01 compared to 9.000).
The 12.11 beta adds official xserver 1.13 support, which is nice.

You need to extract it.
Steps to build are fairly simple at the moment, though I'm assuming you're upgrading the driver and not installing fresh:
$ wget http://www2.ati.com/drivers/linux/amd-driver-installer-catalyst-12.11-x86.x86_64.zip
$ unzip amd-driver-installer-catalyst-12.11-x86.x86_64.zip
$ sh ./amd-driver-installer-catalyst-12.11-x86.x86_64.run --buildpkg Ubuntu/raring
$ sudo dpkg -i *.deb
$ sudo nano /etc/ati/signature
You'll need to add the above signature (taken from the repo fglrx 9.00) to remove the "Testing" watermark.Code:9777c589791007f4aeef06c922ad54a2:ae59f5b9572136d99fdd36f0109d358fa643f2bd4a2644d9efbb4fe91a9f6590a145:f612f0b01f2565cd9bd834f8119b309bae11a1ed4a2661c49fdf3fad11986cc4f641f1ba1f2265909a8e34ff1699309bf211a7eb4d7662cd9f8e3faf14986d92f646f1bc
Reboot and all should be good!
