fglrx in raring
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.
Download is here: http://support.amd.com/us/gpudownloa...eon_linux.aspx
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.
Reboot and all should be good!
