Wish I was here with good news today but as my luck has it I'm afraid I'm not :(
I recently bought a new graphics card (sapphire HD 7870) and installed it into my system ... went well up to there ...
I tried updating the driver but won't able to in additional drivers.
I then tried this page http://wiki.cchtml.com/index.php/Ubuntu_Precise_Installation_Guide
now when I try anything this message comes up
"The package fglrx needs to be reinstalled, but I can't find an archive for it"
I am at the minute downloading (found on link above)
Download the latest Catalyst package.
This package contains both the 32-bit and 64-bit driver.
(I'm on first step) ... slow Internet ... yay +_+
wget http://www2.ati.com/drivers/linux/amd-driver-installer-12-8-x86.x86_64.zip unzip amd-driver-installer-12-8-x86.x86_64.zip chmod +x amd-driver-installer-8.982-x86.x86_64.run
any pages or info anybody may have shall be greatly appreciated
can provide more information if needs be Release 12.04 (precise) 64-bit Kernel Linux 3.2.0-29-generic GNOME 3.4.2
