    Problems with installing ATI Catalyst OpenGL 4.0 preview driver for Linux

      The installer claims that there is no space on my hard disk

      Hi.

      I am new to Linux and I am trying to install the ATI Catalyst OpenGL 4.0 preview driver for Linux. The problem is that the installer tells me that there not is enough free space to install the driver. However the driver only requires 75 MB and there are several GB of free space.

      I am running Linux Knoppix 6.2 and I have a ATI Mobillity Radeon HD 4650 graphics card. I type the following into my terminal as a super user:

      root@Microknoppix:/home/fglrx-8.712.3.1# dir
      ati-driver-installer-8.712.3.1-x86.x86_64.run  check.sh  doc
      root@Microknoppix:/home/fglrx-8.712.3.1# chmod 755 ati-driver-installer-8.712.3.1-x86.x86_64.run
      root@Microknoppix:/home/fglrx-8.712.3.1# ./ati-driver-installer-8.712.3.1-x86.x86_64.run

       

      and get the following output:

      Created directory fglrx-install.JkYhDu
      Verifying archive integrity... All good.

      Can someone please tell me what I am doing wrong and how I can install the driver...
