View Full Version : [ubuntu] FGLRX.ko file is missing.

July 18th, 2009, 02:21 PM
Does anyone know why I am not getting a fglrx.ko file? I've gone to System > Administration > Hardware Driver then enabled fglrx but when I type in
sudo dpkg-reconfigure -phigh linux-restricted-modules-`uname -r`
it says :
update-initramfs: Generating /boot/initrd.img-2.6.28-13-generic
then I try :
sudo insmod /lib/modules/`uname -r`/volatile/fglrx.ko
I get an error message saying the file does not exist
what am I doing wrong? >.<

if i do a find / -name "fglrx.ko" i get this:

when insmod that one i get :
insmod: error inserting '/lib/modules/2.6.28-14-generic/updates/dkms/fglrx.ko': -1 Operation not permitted

and im on t he 9.04 x64

Then i rolled back the installation by
sudo apt-get remove --purge fglrx*
and installed the ati.com version like described in: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/BinaryDriverHowto/ATI
worked like charm

(BTW: i use fglrx because of the open source makes my GPU run to 78C. With the fglrx its now 56 degrees
