I got a strange problem when I try to install ati drivers on my Intrepid. I am trying to follow the instructions provided here:

http://wiki.cchtml.com/index.php/Ubuntu_Intrepid_Installation_Guide

I have downloaded ati-driver-installer-9-1-x86.x86_64.run and I am trying to execute the following:


root@leka-desktop:/home/leka/Desktop# sudo apt-get install build-essential cdbs fakeroot dh-make debhelper debconf libstdc++5 dkms

When I do that, it produces the following output:


Reading package lists... Done

debconf is already the newest version.
libstdc++5 is already the newest version.

When I try inserting Ubuntu 8.10 CD (either normal or alternate versions), nothing happens! :(

After that, i did apt-get autoremove, and it happens again. I've tried restarting the root terminal, but it just happens again, only without the "The following packages were automatically installed and are no longer required..." part.

I must say that I have tried installing the driver automatically, by enabling the restricted driver, but after I click "Activate" (or something) it just stays on "Downloading and installing", at 0 percent, and without any network activity.

I am totally confused! Help?

I have figured out how to continue instalation! It's so simple I'm embarassed now... :oops: I just unticked the CD-ROM update option in Software Sources and apt-get started downloading!

Still, I think the fact that it searches for the CD and not recognizing it is some kind of a bug.
