I have experienced the problem that Installer was using /usr/lib64 instead of /usr/lib on 64bit Ubuntu installations. This in turn causes libraries to be not found.
People seem to have devised solutions to this problem:
However, AMD, please fix the issue in next version! (Does AMD have a bug reporting site for this kind of problems/suggestions etc?)
Thanks for reporting this issue. It took me a little while to find the right method for reporting it.
For Catalyst issues, you can submit feedback & bugs below. This information goes directly to the engineering team. http://www.amdsurveys.com/se.ashx?s=5A1E27D27E29B0E3
Will you please complete the form above? I would have filled it out for you, but it’s asking for information about your system that’s not included in your forum post.
Thank you very much for your help!
Kristen, I am happy to report that I successfully could install Catalyst 12.4 and APP SDK 2.6 on Ubuntu 12 Precise.
However, now there is a new problem which you guys should be aware by now (and I thought it would have been fixed with 12.4 driver but somehow it is not!)
Just make a web search for "uaccess_64.h fglrx" there is a simple patch even...
This stops the driver from installing on both Ubuntu 11, 12 and Fedora 16, (and 17 has 3.3.4 kernel where the drivers does not work at all).
