    It could be that you don't have enough space in your /tmp folder. You could try using a different directory to extract it to if that is the case. Not sure how to do that with a .run file. Maybe:
    Code:
    ./ati-driver-installer-8.31.5-x86.x86_64.run /created/temporary/directory

    When I said "/created/temporary/directory" that means to create a temporary directory to install to. Anyway, I downloaded the same file, ran it and it opened right up with the ATI installer perfectly. First, check to see if you have enough space for the installer to create the necessary temporary file: fglrx-install. Open a terminal and type:
    Code:
    df
    ...and press enter. Post the output back here. If it shows you have enough space for the temporary file to be created, then I'm not sure why this is happening, "dude"...

    The problem was space. I downloaded the files as root. Looking at the space that is availible for root I can see why it didn't have enough space to run the program. I copied the files over to my home directory and it worked fine. Thanks Dan.
