  1. Latest ATI Drivers : cant install

    Version 8.22.5 of ATI's display driver for 32-bit and 64-bit x86 Linux
    systems has been released.

    When I try to sh the run file I get this:

    Creating directory fglrx-install
    Verifying archive integrity... All good.
    Uncompressing ATI Proprietary Linux Driver-8.22.5...................
    *snip*
    ../ati-driver-installer-8.22.5-i386(3).run: ./ati-installer.sh:
    /bin/sh: bad interpreter: Permission denied
    Removing temporary directory: fglrx-install


    Any ideas? Can anyone else verify the package?

    Hmm. Are you logged in as root? Does the script have proper permissions?
    That ati-installer.sh needs to show at least one x if you do 'ls -l'.
    That error also shows up when you try to run a Linux executable on a
    mounted file system that isn't native to Linux. Or maybe the file system
    is mounted in fstab with 'noexec' the way some separate home partitions
    are. Also, if there is something in the top of the file with the wrong
    path to, say Perl.
