How do I reinstall the fglrx ATI proprietary driver ?

Postby mark1mint on Sat Jan 19, 2013 5:31 am

Hi,following the last update to UP6 I've had an issue that requires reinstalling the fglrx driver on the latest 3.2.0-4 kernel (for reference: http://forums.linuxmint.com/viewtopic.php?f=198&t=122082 ),so what would be the best/safest way to do this ?
I was thinking something along these lines:boot on the latest kernel,switch to a console (Ctrl+shift+F2),then type sudo apt-get --reinstall install fglrx .Does that sound too easy ?
Since at least everything works as before on the older kernels,I would like to avoid purging and then reinstalling the driver,because if this doesn't pan out,I would be left with a broken interface on all kernels.
Or,since the driver is probably installed but not recognized by this latest kernel,should I try to run aticonfig --initial instead,while in a console ?
