AnsweredAssumed Answered in Linux 16.6 drivers

There is a problem running in the 16.6 drivers on Ubuntu 13.10 64 bit.

./ 143: ./ [[: not found


The solution is in the comments of How to install AMD graphics drivers on Ubuntu - YouTube by Scott Walter:

I think I found the solution.  I'm also on Ubuntu 14.04, attempting to install the fglrx-14.20 and received the exact same error.


First, extract the .run file:
     ./ --extract


Next, cd into the newly created directory
    cd fgrlx-install
    # optionally, run this to preview the line which is causing the error:
    grep -n "\[\["


Now, open in your preferred editor and search for "[[" (without quotes).  Given that we're working with exactly the same version, you should find this on line 143.  Comment out the entire conditional block (lines 143-145).


Finally, run the install script with sudo:
    sudo ./ 14.20 --install
It seems to do something for OpenCL-settings. Could this be fixed in the official download?
