I'm running Ubuntu Gnome 13.10 on a Sony Vaio laptop. I tried to install the newest
fglrx driver from the cchtml.com guide but no matter which version I use (13.4 or even 13.9) the installation of the generated
.debs fails with this message:
Error! Bad return status for module build on kernel: 3.11.0-12-generic (x86_64)
This seems to be a confirmed bug on launchpad. Currently I'm running the Radeon SI driver but I really need some 3D acceleration. What is there I can do to install any version of
fglrx correctly or to speed up the bug-fixing-process? How long does the fixing of these bugs usually take?
I just discovered this patch for the driver. But I have no idea how to apply it. The explanation of the developer is not clear to me. Anyone has any idea what I need to do to compile this patched version of the driver myself?
