Hi I just installed the AMD propietary driver for my HP pavilion dv6 with switchable graphics with Xubuntu 12.10.

Everything seems to work fine but games doesn't load good and if I use the command:

LIBGL_DEBUG=verbose fglrxinfo

I get this errors:

    libGL: OpenDriver: trying /usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/dri/tls/i965_dri.so

Thanks for your help.

Edit 1: Maybe this will help:

locate i965_dri.so
/usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/dri/i965_dri.so
/usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/dri/i965_dri.so

I don't understand the "-1" in my question I only ask questions as my last alternative.

Edit 2: I tried to reinstall the drivers and now i get this error in one of the steps:

"wrong ELF class" is the key... –  Rinzwind Apr 20 '13 at 18:55

Solution I tried to solve it installing ia32-libs but i get this errors:

 sudo apt-get install ia32-libs Reading package lists... Done Building dependency tree Reading state information... Done ia32-libs is already the newest version. You might want to run 'apt-get -f install' to correct these: The following packages have unmet dependencies: fglrx-amdcccle-updates : Depends: fglrx-updates E: Unmet dependencies. Try 'apt-get -f install' with no packages (or specify a solution).

Then i tried apt-get -f install but still getting cache errors, so I deleted the cache files, then I can install the dependecies but installation failed. The log says that there was missing files in ATI folder so i tried to reinstall it again. Now i used a force method using:

sudo /usr/share/ati/amd-uninstall.sh --force

Finally I could reinstall again using this method and now fglrxinfosays that everything is correct (i think at least :P):

display: :0.0 screen: 0 OpenGL vendor string: Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. OpenGL renderer string: AMD Radeon HD 6700M Series OpenGL version string: 4.2.12171 Compatibility Profile Context 12.10.17

Thanks Rinzwind for the help !

I had a similar issue and reinstalling fglrx solved it for me too. –  MountainX Jan 5 at 3:27
