ATI Catalyst™ Linux Installer Note



Minimum System Requirements

Before attempting to install the ATI Proprietary Linux driver, the following soft-
ware must be installed:

POSIX Shared Memory (/dev/shm) support is required for 3D apps

glibc version 2.2 or 2.3

Linux kernel 2.6 or higher

XOrg 6.8, 6.9, 7.0, 7.1, 7.2, 7.3 or 7.4

System Recommendations

For best performance and ease of use, ATI recommends the following:

Kernel module build environment

Kernel source code includes either the Kernel Source or Kernel Headers 

The RPM utility should be installed and configured correctly on your system, 
if you intend to install via RPM packages


The ATI Proprietary Linux driver may be installed on a number 

of other Linux distributions. Refer to the installation instructions for 
more information.


ATI has  contributed packaging scripts to allows creation of 

other packages, but does not necessarily test, verify or warrant the reli-
ability. Currently Red Hat Enterprise Linux suite and Novell/SuSE prod-
uct suite are supported Linux distributions.


ATI Events Daemon is not installed in /etc/init.d if using the 

Automatic Driver Installation Option. To install the ATI Events Daemon 
for Red Hat and SuSE, use the Generate Distribution Specific Driver 
Package option to create packages for LGD installation. If there are no 
available packages for your distribution that install scripts for the dae-
mon, refer to their respective user documentation on inserting and use of 
services/daemons. Examples scripts can be located in the default direc-
tory of "/usr/share/doc/ati/examples" after Automatic Driver Installation 
Option installation.


If a Linux 2.6.11 or newer kernel was built with CONFIG_AGP 

enabled, the kernel AGP frontend is required to load the fglrx kernel 
module. To identify whether your kernel was built with CONFIG_AGP 
enabled, look for CONFIG_AGP=y in the kernel config file, or if the 
'agpgart' module is loaded.
