    New binary blob! New found ways to cock shit up, ‘ey AMD?

    Driver Download: … linux.aspx

    This time around, they cocked it up so much it isn’t even compatible with kernels above 3.9. So if you’re using a distro that updates more than once every six months, you’re probably running Kernel 3.11 by now.

    This time around, the fix comes from Krzysztof Kolasa over on Google+

    Here’s how I did it:

    1. Download the AMD binary blob, make it executable and run it (not as root);

    2. Minimize the password prompt and look for the temp folder the installer created (fglrx-install.XXXXXX);

    3. Navigate to …/fglrx-install.XXXXXX/common/lib/modules/fglrx/build_mod/;

    4. Download the patch from Krzysztof’s github;

    5. Extract his patch somewhere;

    6. Copy the CONTENTS of the fglrx-13.152-master folder to the build_mod folder you found earlier (…/fglrx-install.XXXXXX/common/lib/modules/fglrx/build_mod/)

    7. Resume installation and reboot.
