    [KANOTIX]ATI driver installation


    I am running Kanotix 2006 CeBit edition installed to HD. I am wanting to install the Linux ATI Drivers off of their site, but am having some difficulty.

    So far I've downloaded X.Org's 6.8 and run/install the .rpm file, but am given the following errors:

    I strongly recommend using the "ATI Driver Installer" available from ATI's site, rather than the RPMs. As of a few months ago the installer supports Debian and works quite well.

    Do you mean the .run file? I downloaded that too but I'm not sure just how to use it.

    Yes, the .run file. In a terminal, just type
    Code:
    $ sh <name_of_driver_file>.run
    I don't remember whether you need to be root do run it; if so, you'll need to also have access to the X server, which su doesn't give you. I recommend using sux in that case (probably have to apt-get install sux first).

    Installing ati drivers? Kanotix?

    I would guest something like that:

    Code:
    sudo apt-get install fakeroot module-assistant
    chmod +x ati-driver-installer-8.23.7-i386.run
    fakeroot ./ati-driver-installer-8.23.7-i386.run --buildpkg Debian/sid
    sudo dpkg -i fglrx-driver_8.23.7-1_i386.deb fglrx-kernel-src_8.23.7-1_i386.deb
    apt-get install kernel-headers-$(uname -r)
    cd /usr/src
    m-a prepare
    m-a a-i fglrx
    Simplest and most effective way I can think of, as Kanotix is based on Debian Sid.

    Then, change /etc/X11/xorg.conf driver from "ati" to "fglrx".

    And reboot...

    Thanks everyone for your replies, I am going to try them right now and let you know how it goes

    *EDIT*
    I think the drivers installed properly, but it set the refresh rate at too high of a setting for my monitor. I know I had this problem in SuSe and I had to run SaX in init 3 mode and put the refresh rate lower. I tried this on my kanotix but it appears that it does not have SaX. Any suggestions on how to set the refresh rate to say 60Hz?

    NO!!! Don't mess with the HorizSync!!! That can be really bad.

    VertRefresh will let you limit your refresh. You can set the second number to something lower than what it currently is, but definitely not higher. 75 or 85 is good if your monitor supports it, but CHECK FIRST for every resolution you intend to use.
