This question already has an answer here:
My system is overheating frequently, and sometimes it shuts down, so I think I have to install the AMD/Intel Hybrid drivers to fix this problem... My laptop is this Dell with Intel/AMD Hybrid Graphics and I am running Xubuntu 16.04 amd64 (I made a zero installation today).
02:00.0 VGA compatible controller : Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. [AMD/ATI] Thames [Radeon HD 7550M/7570M/7650M] [1002:6841] (prog-if 00 [VGA controller])
This is what I have tried:
Installing drivers with
sudo apt-get install fglrx fglrx-amdcccle fglrx-dev-- didn't work.
Installing drivers with .deb packages from AMD Website -- didn't work.
Following the instructions here and here -- didn't work.
When I try to run the .run file as root, this error message appears:
ERROR: Please install the required pre-requisites before proceeding with AMD Catalyst installation. Please check file usr/share/ati/fglrx-install.log for more details
I have checked the
/usr/share/ati/fglrx-install.log and the content is:
NOTE: If your system has logged the missing packages required for installation, install them in the order as per the log file to resolve package-dependency issues. fglrx installation requires that the system has kernel headers. /lib/modules/4.4.0-22-generic/build/include/linux/version.h cannot be found on this system. Install kernel headers using the command apt-get install linux-headers-4.4.0-22-generic.
So I ran
sudo apt-get install linux-headers-4.4.0-22-generic and:
