    Problems with manual fglrx install

    Hi,

    I recently upgraded to Lucid (x86_64) on an HP dv2 laptop, and after doing so, the system will not resume after a suspend (with fglrx installed from the "official" repositories). After reading a lot about the problem, I have seen that updating to the latest ATI driver had fixed this issue for some, so I would like to try that.

    I am following the guide at at cchtml.

    First, I tried installing the Ubuntu-X team's drivers. However, after (successfully) adding their repository, an update does not fetch their packages:

    Code:
    ...
    Hit http://ppa.launchpad.net lucid Release.gpg                                   
    Ign http://ppa.launchpad.net/ubuntu-x-swat/x-updates/ubuntu/ lucid/main Translation-en_US
    Hit http://security.ubuntu.com lucid-security/main Packages          
    Get:1 http://ppa.launchpad.net lucid Release.gpg [307B]              
    Ign http://ppa.launchpad.net/xorg-edgers/ppa/ubuntu/ lucid/main Translation-en_US
    Hit http://ppa.launchpad.net lucid Release                           
    ...
    Hit http://ppa.launchpad.net lucid/main Packages 
    Get:3 http://ppa.launchpad.net lucid/main Packages [52.6kB]
    Fetched 110kB in 0s (266kB/s)     
    Reading package lists... Done
    It looks like both the xorg-edgers and ubuntu-x-swat repositories are being ignored? (If I'm reading that correctly.) If I open the window System->Administration->Software Sources, I can see that the ubuntu-x-swat repository is checked, so I'm confused why it's being ignored.

    If I try to demand the fglrx-installer package, I get an error that it cannot find this package.

    Code:
    [cjreed@cjreed-laptop Desktop]$ sudo apt-get install fglrx-installer 
    Reading package lists... Done

    Reading state information... Done
    E: Couldn't find package fglrx-installer
    I have the same issues for xorg-edgers and ubuntu-x-swat.

    Finally, if I try to build the official ATI v10.7 drivers myself, I get an error that Linux is an unrecognized architecture!

    Code:
    [cjreed@cjreed-laptop Desktop]$ sh ati-driver-installer-10-7-x86.x86_64.run --buildpkg Ubuntu/lucid
    Created directory fglrx-install.fGajKF

    Any help with these problems would be greatly appreciated! I really can't understand why I'm unable to build the package from ATI myself.

    Thanks!

    Hi,

    Just wondering if anyone could point me in the right direction to investigate the "Error: unsupported architecture: Linux" that I get when trying to build the ATI driver 10.7 package.

    Thanks!

    I'm having the same problem right now with the 10.8 drivers and those repos. I hope someone can give some insight as to why the package can not be found.

    Re: Problems with manual fglrx install

    Just in case anyone finds this thread, I've gotten fglrx to work by:


    1. Unchecking both xorg-edgers and ubuntu-x-swat from the software sources
    2. Building the Catalyst driver 10.10 myself following the direction at http://wiki.cchtml.com/index.php/Ubu...ivers_manually
    3. Doing "sudo sh ati-driver-installer-10-10-x86.x86_64.run --buildpkg Ubuntu/lucid" instead of the non-sudo command suggested in the guide. This actually fixed the "Unrecognized architecture:Linux" problem.
    4. Building and installing the fglrx 10.9 hotfix (as suggested in the cchtml guide).

    Now everything works again -- compiz as well as system suspend/restore!
