After several failed attempts, I finally managed to install the driver AMD 15.9 on ubuntu 15.10.
The following steps are aimed at allowing the user to install the driver on ubuntu 15.10 and any of its flavors.
The following steps are performed on a fresh install of ubuntu 15.10.
- Install the driver:
sudo apt-get install fglrx-updates gcc-4.9 g++-4.9
- Create links to gcc:
sudo rm -f /usr/bin/gcc
sudo rm -f /usr/bin/g++
sudo ln -s /usr/bin/gcc-4.9 /usr/bin/gcc
sudo ln -s /usr/bin/g++-4.9 /usr/bin/g++
- Rebuild the driver module.:
sudo apt-get --reinstall install fglrx-updates-core
After completing the above steps, you can create a configuration file as follows:
sudo aticonfig --initial
That is enough to make install the ubuntu 15.10 and AMD in any of its flavors.
Warning: Ubuntu GNOME 15.10 users on laptops. At the moment I have not patched and recompiled mutter for that version of ubuntu to make it possible to install the driver, so its use in laptops is not recommended.
