    Direct download: http://www2.ati.com/drivers/beta/amd...x86.x86_64.zip

    Building and installation is as easy as:

    Code:
    $ unzip amd-catalyst-13.8-beta2-linux-x86.x86_64.zip
    $ sh ./amd-catalyst-13.8-beta2-linux-x86.x86_64.run --buildpkg Ubuntu/saucy
    $ sudo dpkg -i *.deb
    Note: it's not strictly necessary to build the debs but I find it useful, for example when I upgrade a kernel and modules aren't automatically rebuilt.

    Latest Ubuntu packages

    3 August: fglrx 13.200 (based on 13.8 beta 1) is in Edgers: https://launchpad.net/~xorg-edgers/+archive/ppa (fglrx: 2:13.200~beta-0ubuntu1~xedgers~saucy2), packaged by Rico Tzschichholz.

    fglrx 13.100 packages (based on 13.6 beta) are available in saucy-proposed (fglrx: 2:13.101-0ubuntu1), packaged by Alberto Milone.

    Latest kernel patches

    The drivers currently support 3.11-rc5 (3.11.0-2-generic). For unofficial patches for kernel 3.10 see the next post. These should not be necessary, however, and the patches are deprecated. I'm leaving the post for people interested in the process and for future reference!.

    Patch latest

    Krzysztof Kolasa has made available patches which add kernel 3.10 compatibility [1]. I have adapted these slightly and attached them to this post along with ready-patched files. As always, use these at your own risk (WFM, YMMV, ROFLFAQ, etc.).

    Manual patching instructions

    Note: this process is not for the inexpert. Don't ask for help if you can't follow instructions!

    The process is the same as for previous releases, i.e.:

    1) Download
    2) Extract
    3) Patch
    4) Build
    5) Install

    For this process I assume you have a working directory called "temp" in your home. Change this to suit. I use /dev/shm as a handy ramdisk. I also assume you download and extract the patches to that directory.

    Details:

    0) If this is the first time you've done this, install the necessary development packages (normally installed by the installer, if any are missing they should be identified in the output of step 5):
    $ sudo apt-get install dpkg-dev debhelper dh-modaliases execstack

    1) Once downloaded (the .run is in a .zip file. I shouldn't have to tell you how to deal with that), extract the installer files so we can patch manually:
    $ sh ./amd-driver-installer-catalyst-13-6-beta-x86.x86_64.run --extract ~/temp/amd
    $ cd ~/temp

    2) Download, extract to ~/temp, and apply the attached patches (adapted from that in kolasa's GitHub repo [1]):
    $ patch -p0 < ./310.patch

    4) Download and add a release signature (taken from Catalyst 13.4) to remove the testing watermark:
    $ cp signature ~/temp/amd/common/etc/ati/

    5) Build the packages (this will place the packages in the parent directory):
    $ cd ~/temp/amd
    $ ./ati-installer.sh 13.101 --buildpkg Ubuntu/saucy

    6) Change to the parent directory and install the debs:
    $ cd ..
    $ sudo dpkg -i *.deb

    7) If you haven't done so already, create an Xorg.conf that will load fglrx:
    $ sudo amdconfig --init

    I'm on Saucy with kernel 3.9.0-7-generic and 13.101-0ubuntu1_amd64 fglrx from fglrx-updates or fglrx

    My computer hangs when attempting to startx X using fglrx. I cannot switch to another console to kill the process or see startx output. I looked at the fglrx log android not see any entry marked (EE). I've also looked through dmesg and syslogs

    As a final effort I installed the 104 driver from the AMD website which works properly. Please update the fglrx deb files please

    Re: fglrx in saucy

    Hey, ive got some problems with the patching.
    Can someone help me?
    Im on stable 3.10

    Code:
    balazs@balazs-GA-A75-D3H:/media/ramdisk$ sudo patch -p0 < ./310.patchcan't find file to patch at input line 15
    Perhaps you used the wrong -p or --strip option?

    Re: fglrx in saucy

    1) Just use the debs from the repo. They work fine, there's no need to patch at the moment.

    2) You shouldn't need to use sudo for the patching process. The error also indicates you haven't extracted the driver files to the place the patch is expecting (i.e. /media/ramdisk/amd ).

    Re: fglrx in saucy

    Looks like 13.6 supports kernel 3.11-rc1, which is nice. Or at least DKMS builds the kernel modules!
