Hey there,


I'd like to install HD cards (7800 series and 7900 series) on Linux (Debian 9.1 Stretch) but when I try to install the proprietary driver it yields the following error:

error: Detected X Server version 'XServer 1.19.2_64a' is not supported. Supported versions are X.Org 6.9 or later, up to XServer 1.10 (default:v2:x86_64:lib:XServer 1.19.2_64a:none:4.9.0-3-amd64:)

Installation will not proceed.

I'm completely new to Linux (mainly a Windows user) so I basically have little clue about what to do (always googling stuff, but couldn't find an appropriate solution for this one).


I hope you can help me!


Best Regards,
