    I have the same problem installing the Catalyst driver for my Sapphire Radeon HD 7750. At first I got the kernel-headers replacing my /etc/apt/source.list with this one:
    deb [arch=amd64] http://http.kali.org/kali kali main contrib non-free
    deb-src http://http.kali.org/kali kali main contrib non-free

    deb [arch=amd64] http://security.kali.org/kali-security kali/updates main contrib non-free
    deb-src http://security.kali.org/kali-security kali/updates main contrib non-free
    (then do a apt-get update && apt-get dist-upgrade && apt-get install linux-headers)
    So far I could download the installer from the amd website and install the necessary dependencies (http://askubuntu.com/questions/12429...-drivers-fglrx) and you also have to copy the version.h which is located in /lib/modules/3.7-trunk-amd64/build/include/generated/uapi/linux/ to /lib/modules/3.7-trunk-amd64/build/include/linux. But yet the installer fails at the "DKMS installing part", I don't know why yet.

    Very Nice! I will be testing this out as soon as I have my install up and going about 3 or 4 days from now (doing backup and redundancies atm) I will be specifically be seeking how well switchable graphics will be working or not. I will report back soon.

    I can confirm piermark's fix works for installing fglrx 9.012 for regular cards as well. Just use the commands but omit the word 'legacy'. eg. sudo apt-get -t experimental install fglrx-driver fglrx-control.

    Just wanted to post an update:
    I have the amd switchable graphics in my notebook. So I went ahead and followed piermark and Sharkbait's instructions, except my finial command I issued was "aticonfig --initial -f", after that tried the control panel, but didn't detect the driver or hardware.. A bit worried it didn't work, decided to do a reboot. And Yes it Worked! I have switchable graphics working now with my Intel 3000 and ATI 7550m.
    Never been able to get it working in BackTrack, very happy to see it working in Kali
    Thanxs guys.

    If done as described here I get this error:
    aticonfig --initial

    I have an A8 apu with 6620G and a HD 6750M, I have a custom bios that allows me to actively change graphics adapters on the fly. But to install fglrx I had to make sure I booted using the 6750M, then install, run "aticonfig --initial -f", reboot, and THEN switch to the apu graphics (6620G). The install will fail if you are using the apu graphics (powersaving) so you have to make sure you're using the discrete card, at least that was the case for me. Hope this helps.

    You don't have a legacy card and should issue the commands as follows:
    (Run all of these using sudo or as root)

    apt-get -t experimental install fglrx-driver fglrx-control
    aticonfig --initial -f
    apt-get -t experimental install amd-opencl-icd

    Ok guys, first I want to tell you that fglrx (propietary driver) are not in Kali repos, so you need to do:

    1. Add to sources list the Debian repos pointing to Debian experimental: deb http://ftp.debian.org/debian experimental main non-free contrib

    2. YOU NEED to know what chipset or ATI model is your card:
    HD 2000 to HD 4000 ----> Need the legacy version
    HD5000 or greater -------> Need the Standard fglrx

    3. Files to install:
    * the binary file (driver itself for the windows people): fglxr-driver
    * the Libraries or glx : fglxr-glx
    Then, you need the interface between the kerneand the driver (fglrx), that is the fglxr-kernel, here you have 3 ways to create the fglxr-kernel:
    * using module assistant: here you need to install the sources: fglxr-source. If you use this method, every time the kernel updates, you will need to recompile the driver.
    * using dkms: You need to install: fglrx-modules-dkms....Here it will build up the fglrx-kernel and the rest of the driver automatically. In future kernel updates, it will take care of driver in Auto...
    by the way, dkms meas Dynamic Kernel Module Support..Dynamic, yes..It is used also in VM. I install it in every VM I install as well as nvidia and Ati video cards.
    * using the ATI driver from the ATI website.

    4. I will install with dkms off course. Some other packages recommended:
    fglrx-control.
    - Provides GUI (Graphical control center) to the driver or the configuration.
    fglrx-atieventsd
    - Provides the daemon for some external events such as: acpi, etc...

    Use aptitude -t experimental install "packages needed accordingly".

    Once all installed, run the aticonfig --initial.

    You might need to reboot before running aticonfig..

    One more thing, after installing the driver and configured, comment the line "deb http://ftp.debian.org/debian experimental main non-free contrib" in the sources.list, because if you upgrade, it can upgrade packages from experimental and break dependencies and system will become unstable..

    Remember that Kali is based on Wheezy, Sid and experimental, not only in experimental.

    Hope it helps...

    I only have a single card, I have never tried to get multiple cards running in crossfire with fglrx.
    As for oclHastcat-plus not running, there is a simlink missing in /usr/lib if you read the oclhashcat+ file in /usr/bin (see this thread: http://forums.kali.org/showthread.ph...x-is-installed )



    FW73:

    aticonfig: Writing to '/etc/X11/xorg.conf' failed. Permission denied.
    You have to do the entire install as root, including running the aticonfig command. Also, some users have to force the use of the new xorg.conf with "aticonfig --initial -f"
    Read as: run "sudo aticonfig --initial -f" and post if you still have issues.

    Lastly, make sure you have all dependencies installed before installing fglrx.

    plz help me
    i have installed the fglrx driver just like piermark :

    in /etc/apt/source.list add

    deb http://ftp.debian.org/debian experimental main non-free contrib

    apt-get update

    now:
    sudo apt-get -t experimental install fglrx-driver fglrx-control
    sudo apt-get -t experimental install amd-opencl-icd

    i have also removed legacy
    everything is working fine my fglrxinfo tells me

    display: :0.0 screen: 0
    OpenGL vendor string: Advanced Micro Devices, Inc.
    OpenGL renderer string: ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5400 Series
    OpenGL version string: 4.2.12002 Compatibility Profile Context 9.012

    and the fgl_glxgears working fine

    but i can't configure compiz nor docky
    i think its in radeon.modeset=0 in grub

    I wanted to reinstall Kali Linux today and when I tried to follow this guide again to get my graphic card working, it was no longer working.

    I am using hybrid graphic card. intel hd 3000 / ati radeon 6630M

    I added "deb http://ftp.debian.org/debian experimental main non-free contrib" to sources and ran:

    sudo apt-get -t experimental install fglrx-driver fglrx-control
    sudo apt-get -t experimental install amd-opencl-icd

    and got the message "The value 'experimental' is invalid for APT:efault-Release as such a release is not available in the sources"

    anyone got any idea of what i can do?

    thanks in advance!

    best wishes

    Hello guys,
    I'm here to talk about my personal experience with radeon drivers.

    Since I start using Kali I was using the radeon drivers installed by apt-get as described above.
    But it had REALLY BAD PERFORMANCE!!!!!!
    The apt-get repositories have an old version.


    DO NOT INSTALL IT BY APT-GET!!!!!!


    Today I downloaded the driver from site for test the new driver.

    To remove the one I was using:
    apt-get purge fglrx* amd-opencl-icd

    Then go to /etc/X11/ and restore the original graphic settings (xorg.conf):
    (in my case it was a blank file, but you should have some backup file like: xorg.conf.original-0)

    rm xorg.conf
    mv xorg.conf.original-0 xorg.conf

    now go to the directory where you downloaded the new drivers (.run).
    cd /path/to/driver

    and:

    sh amd<version><arch>.run --install
    (There is no specific build to Kali, I tried use the debian stable one but got errors. So just run a normal install)

    It will open one window, just follow the installation. but DON'T REBOOT THE SYSTEM IN THE END!
    You'll need to:
    aticonfig --initial

    Now, reboot the system.
    Well, it worked for me and I'm really surprised with the new performance .
    Hope you enjoy it. Sorry for my english.

    I have Debian 7 (Wheezy)
    Following error after instalation in my case was that files libGL.so.1 and others was installed in /usr/lib64 instead /usr/lib
    # aticonfig --initial -f
    aticonfig: error while loading shared libraries: libGL.so.1: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

    The problem is solved, when driver is uninstalled and /usr/lib64 is removed (it is recomended to move folder to other location, just for any case). After new instalation files are in folder /usr/lib
