Hello,

the downloadlink: http://www2.ati.com/drivers/beta/amd-catalyst-13.8-beta2-linux-x86.x86_64.zip gives me a zero bytes file.I tried to download the 13.8 beta 2 driver a several times but always its a zero byte file.

Selection: Desktop graphic - Radeon HD series - 6XXX card - Linux x86_64

Please fix the file.

I just tested the file downloaded from the website below.  It downloaded without fault.  117mb.

While the usual "Clear your cache" answer is overused for website issues, it definitely helps when you're unable to download the drivers from our site. If you delete the incomplete download, clear your browser's cache and temporary internet files and the issue persists, try contacting your Internet Service Provider to determine why the connection to our server isn't working normally.

Hello,

now I tried to download the file with Google Chrome and Firefox browser, in both browsers I deleted history and cache files. I tried it from two different computers.

And I also tried to download the file with terminal:

wget -c http://www2.ati.com/drivers/beta/amd-catalyst-13.8-beta2-linux-x86.x86_64.zip

The direct link to the file does not work for the beta 2 driver.

http://www2.ati.com/drivers/beta/amd-catalyst-13.8-beta2-linux-x86.x86_64.zip

But the link to the prior driver 13.8 Beta 1 works if I manually modify the link to:

http://www2.ati.com/drivers/beta/amd-catalyst-13.8-beta1-linux-x86.x86_64.zip

I'm using AMD driver download since a few years. I don't think it is an issue of my provider. I tried a few other driver downloads.. Any other download from the AMD servers work.

The issue is always the same, the download finishes instandly creating a 0 byte File called: amd-catalyst-13.8-beta2-linux-x86.x86_64.zip

It's odd, since both worked for me here (just tested again to verify), though the files aren't on the same server that I am, but technically the same network. Are you in North/South America, or overseas?

Zaregis, can you get the beta1 link above, and not the beta2, or are both not working for you?

Sorry for late reply. I can download beta 1, but still can't download beta 2. I'm in Bosnia.

It's interesting that you are both in Europe with the same issue, but that might have a role to play. Just for fun, is http://www2.ati.com/drivers/beta/amd_catalyst_13.8_mobility_beta2.exe also not possible, or does it come up just fine?

That makes it more interesting for sure. I'll make sure to pass it on to the server team to see what could possibly be happening here.

Hallo,

 

just a few moments ago I tried it again, and this time the download is working. Have you done anything to fix the problem.

We mentioned it to the server team, but they didn't get back to us with any status update, or whether it was internal or external. At least it's working, that's what matters.
