After a while with headaches and constant research I finally got to install the latest ATI/RADEON legacy driver into my Vaio laptop running Debian Wheezy. FYI and reference the video adapter is a Mobility HD 4650.

So , here you go my short tutorial:

1 - Download the driver

Download the driver from AMD (Legacy or not) and extract it to a proper folder (in this example I used amd):


~$ ./amd-driver-installer-catalyst-13.1-legacy-linux-x86.x86_64.run --extract amd


2 - Download the patch:

https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/catalyst-total-hd234k/

3 - Appling the patches:

Copy all the files that contains ".patch" extension to the root of your extracted ATI/RADEON driver folder. One by one patches, use the following command line to apply the patch at the root of your extracted driver folder:

patch -p0 < ./whatever-patch-name.patch

e.g.


patch -p0 < ./arch-fglrx-3.7.patch

patch -p0 < ./arch-fglrx-3.8.patch

patch -p0 < ./3.5-do_mmap.patch

patch -p0 < ./makefile_compat.patch

patch -p0 < ./arch-fglrx-authatieventsd.patch


4 - Install the driver:

After apply the patches you don't need to repack into a .deb or another package you can just go straight and install the driver through the following command line:


~$ sudo ./ati-installer.sh 8.97.100.7 --install


After installing proceed with the following line:


~$ sudo amdconfig --initial


Just in case you are a lazzy guy and don't wanna patch by yourself, you can go straight to my already patched amd legacy driver here:

http://goo.im/devs/erickwill/drivers/amd-driver-installer-catalyst-13.1-legacy-linux-x86.x86_64.tar.gz

So you can start from the step "4 - Install the driver"

Have fun!!
