So a file server with a AMD APU A8-6600k that has been used as a headless box for awhile but i am now going to be using a screen for messing with steam game streaming. So figured i would install the AMD graphics drivers.
I initially went to their website downloaded the latest zip file, unzipping it produced a .run file. I then proceeded to run a sh amd-file-name.run This brought me into a series of menus that failed.
Ok i then realize i should probably find some sort of guide. So i followed both
I eventually assumed that the deb files were missing dependencies so i ran a
sudo apt-get -f install
This tells me i am going to install fglrx however i get the following error.
[Warning] Uninstall : inst_path_default or inst_path_override does not exist in /etc/ati. This suggests that the AMD driver is not installed, the AMD driver is only partially installed, or the current AMD driver installed is an older version than the one this script was designed for. Both files listed above are required for determining where installed files are located. To force uninstallation of the driver by guessing where the uninstallation files are located, set the force option re-run /usr/share/ati/fglrx-uninstall.sh (this is not recommended). dpkg: error processing /var/cache/apt/archives/fglrx_2%3a13.101-0ubuntu3_amd64.deb (--unpack): subprocess new pre-installation script returned error exit status 1 Errors were encountered while processing: /var/cache/apt/archives/fglrx_2%3a13.101-0ubuntu3_amd64.deb E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1)
I am at a total loss as to where to proceed and have now any gui, and just receive a black screen.
Should i run the uninstall even though it says its not recommended?
