    lokixml.sh in Linux 16.6 drivers

    VincentSC

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

      ./lokixml.sh: 143: ./lokixml.sh: [[: 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:
           ./amd-driver-installer-14.20-x86.x86_64.run --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 "\[\[" lokixml.sh

       

      Now, open lokixml.sh 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 ./ati-installer.sh 14.20 --install
      It seems to do something for OpenCL-settings. Could this be fixed in the official download?
