When I learn about a new version of AMD's graphics driver, I usually see something like "Catalyst 12.3." However, the fglrx package in Ubuntu has a version like 2:8.960-0.
Are these two version numbers related? How can I find the (better-known) official version number, like 12.3, for the fglrx package in Ubuntu's repository? Can I do this without needing to install the package?
