    Unhappy fglrx patch for kernel 3.14

    Hi, I've just installed fglrx drivers (apt-get install fglrx-driver fglrx-control), after that when I open amd catalyst center, it says

    There was a problem initializing Catalyst Control Center Linux edition. It could be caused by the following.

    No AMD graphics driver is installed, or the AMD driver is not functioning properly.
    Please install the AMD driver appropriate for you AMD hardware, or configure using aticonfig.

    after googleing I found solution for 3.7 kernels, but it is not working properly with my version of kernel... so any solutions?

    P.S. Installation completed without any errors

    Ok.. I think I found solution... you need just install a "apt-get install fglrx-driver fglrx-control", and if installing goes with no errors, just run "aticonfig --initial" and when it creates xorg.conf - run glxgears to ensure that the driver works properly. Thats it...

    That's the standard procedure for installing drivers, but in this case it does not work. I have ASUS Radeon R7 260x GPU and I can't install AMD drivers at all. I have tried literally 100 times to install the drivers which I needed for the program oclHashCat. I have Kali 1.0.9a 64bit installed, can someone help me with a detail explanation for how to install the AMD drivers. Thanks in advance.

    If you only want to install the drivers, follow the guide below up to and including step five:

    I had a lot of trouble with a 290x card. I'm not sure if you will have the same. Not with the drivers through, the problem was with Cal++.
    chown -R us ./base

    Thank you for the reply but I cannot get GUI at all.
    I know for this procedure but after
    1.
    Code:
    shutdown -r now
    I get a black screen.
    I updated grub
    2.
    Code:
    GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash nomodeset radeon.modeset=0"
    Done that
    3.
    Code:
    update-grub
    4.
    Code:
    shutdown -r now
    Again I get a black screen
    My xorg.conf looks like this
    Code:
    Section "ServerLayout"
    Identifier "aticonfig Layout"
    Screen 0 "aticonfig-Screen[0]-0" 0 0
    EndSection
    
    Section "Module"
    EndSection
    
    Section "Monitor"
    Identifier "aticonfig-Monitor[0]-0"
    Option "VendorName" "ATI Proprietary Driver"
    Option "ModelName" "Generic Autodetecting Monitor"
    Option "DPMS" "true"
    EndSection
    
    Section "Device"
    Identifier "aticonfig-Device[0]-0"
    Driver "fglrx"
    BusID "PCI:1:0:0"
    EndSection
    
    Section "Screen"
    Identifier "aticonfig-Screen[0]-0"
    Device "aticonfig-Device[0]-0"
    Monitor "aticonfig-Monitor[0]-0"
    DefaultDepth 24
    SubSection "Display"
    Viewport 0 0
    Depth 24
    EndSubSection
    EndSection
    I'm guessing the problem may be with kernel because the Kali version 1.0.9a has kernel 3.14 in which the bash exploit is fixed, in Kali version 1.0.9 of kernel bash exploit is present, it says so on Kali's page.
