I should know better than to try fixing what is not broke....
I updated the Kernel of my Mint 14 Cinnamon install (to 3. 12 rc5). I have good reason for doing so but as they say a little knowledge is a dangerous thing.... so call me dangerous
The actual update seems to be good.....but I can't get fglrx working again. and it is that, together with the new kernel, that I wanted to benchmark.
Setting of real/effective user Id to 0/0 failed
ERROR: could not insert 'fglrx': Operation not permitted
Error! Fail to load fglrx kernel module! Maybe you can switch to root user to load kernel module directly
Is what my program reported and running fglrxinfo just gave me the finger.
Have uninstalled, purged and re-installed to no avail
So, my question to you guys is:
Is this just a step too far for a beginner like me or more likely a simple mistake on my part? It looks like it could be a permissions issue but I would expect the package manager to deal with that ??
Is there likely a deeper issue at work where the two are incompatible ??
Note: all I did to go from working to not working is update the kernel. The package manager reports fglrx as installed but it does not run. Installing from CLI made no difference
