Removing old ATI Catalyst Display driver
I have a problem upgrading the drivers for my ATI Radeon HD 4870 graphics card. Having downloaded the latest version of the ATI Catalyst 9.7 Proprietary Linux x86 Display Driver (ati-driver-installer-9-7-x86.x86_64.run), I am unable to proceed because I cannot figure out how to remove, as recommended in the installer instructions, the older version of this driver. The installer instructions provide only the following method:
1 Launch the Terminal Application/Window and navigate to the /usr/share/ati
2 With superuser permissions, enter the command "sh ./fglrx-uninstall.sh"
Upon doing this, however, the response in terminal is simply this: "sh: Can't open ./fglrx-uninstall.sh". Since AMD provides no other instructions, and since their support service explicitly tells me that they do not provide support for Linux users, I am now at a loss.
So does anyone know how I can remove my old driver? If it cannot be done using the uninstall script, perhaps I can do it manually?
Thank you for your time.
