My computer uses a Radeon HD 6950. I installed the "ATI/AMD proprietary FGLRX graphics driver" just fine, however, when I tried to install the "post-release updates", I received an error ("Sorry, installation of this driver failed.") The log dump:

When I restart, I find the original FGLRX is uninstalled, but I can reinstall fine. I have been using just the original (no updates) just fine.

However, I have been experiencing the same Chrome lag as this question.

Is it related to my driver?

What is the real question here? The FGLRX part or the Chrome part? –  RolandiXor Aug 8 '12 at 4:35
    
Sorry for being unclear, my real question is the driver install failure. I wasn't sure if I should ask the chrome thing in a separate question, but I thought it was worth mentioning in case they were related. Thank you for fixing the formatting too. –  kyryx Aug 8 '12 at 5:47
    
you're welcome :). Btw you should ask about Chrome in a separate question for best results. –  RolandiXor Aug 8 '12 at 15:02
