Automating Catalyst Driver Install

Possible automated install of Catalyst Driver


Does anyone have a way to possibly install the Catalyst Driver automatically entirely. As my previous posts may show, I am working on OpenCL on a cluster which has some AMD GPUs. However if a node reimages itself the Catalyst and SDK install is lost.

I tried to generate a RedHat package. However it asks for the dependancy below. I use Centos.My plan is to use the rpm to reinstall the driver if a system crashes.


[root@compute-0-10 ~]# rpm -ivh fglrx64_6_9_0-8.702-1.x86_64.rpm 

error: Failed dependencies: compat-libstdc++-33 is needed by fglrx64_6_9_0-8.702-1.x86_64

Do I *really* need these libs because when I do the install in the automatic method it doesnt ask for these libraries ?
Can I get away with the nodeps switch and where should the rpm be extracted to ?
The SDK and ICD setup should be easy-ish to make into a  bash script.
Thank You and sorry if this isnt the right forum. Wasnt sure which is the driver specific forum
