Linux Distributions Supported:

  • Red Hat Enterprise Linux Suite 6.3 and 6.4
  • SUSE® Linux Enterprise 11 SP3
  • OpenSUSE 11.4 and 12.1
  • Ubuntu 12.04.2 and 13.04

System Requirements:

Before attempting to install the AMD Catalyst Linux graphics driver, the following software must be installed:

  • Xorg/Xserver 7.4 and above (up to 1.14)
  • Linux kernel 2.6 or above (up to 3.10)
  • glibc version 2.2 or 2.3
  • POSIX Shared Memory (/dev/shm) support is required for 3D applications

Note: 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 with CONFIG_AGP enabled, look for CONFIG_AGP=y in the kernel config file, or if the ‘agpgart’ module is loaded

System Recommendations:

For optimal performance and ease of use, the following are available:

  • Kernel module build environment
  • Kernel source code include either the Kernel Source or Kernel Headers packages
  • The RPM utility should be installed and configured correctly on your system, if you intend to install via RPM packages

The following packages must be installed in order for the AMD Catalyst Linux graphics driver to install and work optimally:

  • gimp-help-en
  • gimp-help-common
  • XFree86-Mesa-libGL
  • libstdc++
  • libgcc
  • XFree86-libs
  • fontconfig
  • freetype
  • zlib
  • gcc
