Hello !

After installing fglrx with sgfxi the script asked me to mention to the developers if it was able to do so, since it believed before installation it was not able to install.. (forced it with -! 6, I've read in ATI wiki that catalyst runs now with xorg 1.11)

Fglrx driver now installs and runs beautiful with Debian Sid, ATI 12-4 driver 64 bit, xorg 1.11 and a 3.3.0-3.dmz.1-liquorix-amd64 kernel.

Thanks for your efforts !!

Roland

I'm confused a bit, sgfxi already allowed xorg 1.11 for fglrx greater or equal than 11-10

xorg 1.12 is listed for fglrx 12-5 or newer.

fglrx also was allowed for kernel 3.3, or rather, was not disallowed, that's been updated now however to be explicit.

Please paste the last /var/log/sgfxi/sgfxi.log

so I can see what your system is actually running, something is not correct, I need to find if it's in sgfxi or somewhere else.

Entering sgfxi from smxi , it tells there is no support for fglrx and xorg 1.11 expected for near future...

messages updated, completely had forgotten to do that.

Now, if you run sgfxi and it tells you you need to use -! 6 to override, that's a bug, and I'll need to see what is happening there.

If on the other hand you simply saw the text message and ran it with -!6, that's not a bug, just an oversight.

Hello !

When I tried sgfxi , it stopped to install and told me if I want to install despite the script thought it was not able to complete the task, I would have to use the switch -! 6... I would not have used it if it would have installed on its own without stopping....

I will need to see the log file without the -! 6 flag. Easy to generate since it if exits with that error message, it will have generated that file, and if it works, the issue is either fixed or resolved somehow.

That should not be happening, and suggests a possible change in bash itself.

I hope this is the right one, due to trying to make it work I have 8 sgfxi logs with 2 installs each....
