I tried to install AMD catalyst graphics driver for my HP Notebook with specifications as follows:
lspci | grep VGA 00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation 3rd Gen Core processor Graphics Controller (rev 09) 01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: Advanced Micro Devices [AMD] nee ATI Thames XT/GL [Radeon HD 7600M Series
I already tried installing with instructions from this page but got error like this:
Loading new fglrx-12-6+point DKMS files... First Installation: checking all kernels... Building only for 3.7-trunk-686-pae Building initial module for 3.7-trunk-686-pae<br> Error! Bad return status for module build on kernel: 3.7-trunk-686-pae (i686) Consult /var/lib/dkms/fglrx/12-6+point/build/make.log for more information. dpkg: error processing fglrx-modules-dkms (--configure): subprocess installed post-installation script returned error exit status 10 Errors were encountered while processing: fglrx-modules-dkms
After that I installed—with proper instructions from forums—
amd-catalyst-13.10-beta2-linux-x86.x86_64.zip which did not work for me.
Then I installed
amd-driver-installer-catalyst-13-4-linux-x86.x86_64.zip but this time the installer says I’ve successfully completed installation and gave me a prompt to reboot the system and I did.
When it booted up the system, it jst displays a black screen with sort of underline cursor and I’m not able to do anything.
I didn’t change or configure
xorg.conf after the installation.
