Code: Select all
sudo apt-get install build-essential cdbs fakeroot dh-make debhelper debconf libstdc++6 dkms libqtgui4 wget execstack libelfg0 dh-modaliases
sudo apt-get install fglrx fglrx-amdcccle
It seems to work correctly, but the performance is horrible. Just moving windows around is very very choppy. It's far worse than the open source drivers. I disabled "tear free" in the catalyst control center. It didn't help at all.
I uninstalled the drivers. Back on Gallium open source and it worked alright again. Then I tried downloading the drivers from AMD. They don't work all for me. I boot to text mode and Xorg shows me the log. It says that it couldn't detect a display.
Next, I uninstalled that, and installed the fglrx-updates from the repo along with it's catalyst control center and now I'm back to the terrible performance I was getting with the regular fglrx.
Does anyone have any ideas or advice? I know my card should work, as it works in Debian Testing (Wheezy) with gnome 3. It works when I install the drivers from the Debian repository and when I install the drivers off of AMD's website.
Thanks for any help you can give me.
Edit: I already should add that the card doesn't sound overworked. It's very quiet, just as you would expect on the desktop. It's much quieter than the open source driver.
