I have a Inspiron 7520, I have a i7 2.1ghz going up to 3.1 ghz. I also have an hybrid graphic card with a Intel HD 4000 and a AMD Radeon HD 7730m 2go. My Linux OS is Ubuntu 12.10 64 bits.
My problem is pretty simple, I went to AMD and downloaded the drivers for my GPU. The version is new, it is 13.1. AMD recommend me to use this driver for my card so it gotta be the right drivers for my card. Also they are 64 bits and all. So I install it manually and use one of the tutorials we've got on the internet for this specific type of card.
I install the recommended packages from the tutorial
sudo apt-get install build-essential cdbs fakeroot dh-make debhelper debconf libstdc++6 sudo apt-get install linux-headers-generic xserver-xorg-core libgcc1 sudo apt-get install dkms libqtgui4 wget execstack libelfg0 dh-modaliases
And I install the 64 bit packages required:
sudo apt-get install ia32-libs lib32gcc1 libc6-i386 cd /usr ; sudo ln -svT lib /usr/lib64
So then I unzip and all my drivers, make my .run executable, you know the thing you have to do to install the driver.
Every is installed, but during the installation I can see;
update-alternatives: using /usr/lib/fglrx/ld.so.conf to provide /etc/ld.so.conf.d/x86_64-linux-gnu_GL.conf (x86_64-linux-gnu_gl_conf) in auto mode update-alternatives: warning: forcing reinstallation of alternative /usr/lib/fglrx/ld.so.conf because link group x86_64-linux-gnu_gl_conf is broken update-alternatives: using /usr/lib/fglrx/alt_ld.so.conf to provide /etc/ld.so.conf.d/i386-linux-gnu_GL.conf (i386-linux-gnu_gl_conf) in auto mode update-initramfs: deferring update (trigger activated)
Well, after the installation you must generate your Xorg.conf so I do the command;
sudo amdconfig --initial -f
And there what it says:
amdconfig: No supported adapters detected
Also, I don't know if it can be useful but I have installed the open source drivers I did once
sudo apt-get install xserver-xorg-video-ati*
I don't have any ppa that could get a different open source driver, those are from Ubuntu directly
Could it be the problem?
Thank you very much for your help!
Also what do I do if I have the file to run the driver but I can't install it the fast way because there are missing tools?
