I am attempting to install catalyst drivers on my Linux mint desktop and am getting the error: "Your graphics adapter is not supported by this driver. Installation will not proceed." I get this error with the latest 13.11 betaV9.95 driver and the stable 13.12 driver.

What I need to do to get the catalyst driver installed?

I would like to add, that this was a working machine with an a4-4000 processor, and all that I have done is replace the a4-4000 with an a10-7850K and start it back up to install new catalyst drivers.  Apart from graphics the machine seems to work just fine.

I also looked through the install log and found one line in the file:

~ $ cat /usr/share/ati/fglrx-install.log
./amd_dcm64: No supported adapters detected

If you go through the driver selection on amd.com, it reveals that there is a different driver for your APU, neither 13.11 nor 13.12 is supposed to work.

Try this one.

I went through that website to get to the driver..  Can't believe I missed that.

So I get the same error message with new 14.1 Beta driver linked here: 

http://support.amd.com/en-us/kb-articles/Pages/latest-linux-beta-driver.aspx 

This one specifically states that A10-7850K processor is supported.  Is there a different link that I should try in this case also?

I was sort of able to get it to work with Ubuntu (14.04 Alpha), but not with dual monitors. I have a R7 250 card together with A10-7850k for multiple monitors. I was only able to install Ubuntu by disabling the integrated GPU in the BIOS and forcing the monitor on the discrete card, otherwise Live CD would start to flicker as soon as I clicked "Try Ubuntu".

 

With it installed, I switched to fglrx-updates driver. Rebooted and activated the integrated GPU. It found the second monitor but only at 640x480. After a second reboot it found the processor and identified the TV plugged to it. But that's with the monitor as a second desktop which is kinda useless (or how do I actually get windows into the other desktop?).

 

Problem comes when activating Xinerama. I tried all these drivers with these results:

fglrx-updates (dunno which version, from 2014/Feb/04): it wouldn't even boot.

13.30: would show Ubuntu loading screen and completely freeze there.

13.35 (zip is named 14.1 but file inside is 13.35?): would boot, show login screen, but it hangs after loggin in. Mouse still works, but it doesn't get to the actual OS.

 

Any tip on how to get this to work?

 

(PS: all this on a A88X-PRO motherboard, which I also had to update the BIOS driver to 0802 (latest as Feb/02) because it was giving disk and USB errors when trying to install OS' with MBR)

I managed to get my A10 7850 based system to install Ubuntu drivers from the 14.1 catalyst beta zip yesterday.  The method is a little odd,

Once the install is running you need to tell it to build package spesfic driver not do normal install, this resulted in a library error (debclean or some such) for me then I found

http://wiki.cchtml.com/index.php/Ubuntu_Quantal_Installation_Guide

I had to follow teh instructions from 

Installing Catalyst Manually (from AMD/ATI's site) 

to and including 

sudo dpkg -i fglrx*.deb

Not ideal but it did work in the end - and its installed 13.35 like the filename implies.

Wired that the drivers are called 14.1 but hey.

Thanks Natanmnm, I can now enjoy my apu somewhat, It seems like development lacks a little behind the latest stable kernels so I was albe to get the 14.1 catalyst drivers running although I would like to have the apu version of the drivers running I will have to just wait it out until they release support for 3.13.+

I also have the catalyst 14.1 beta not accepting my a10-7850k as a supported graphics adapter.

I worked around this issue by copying the control file from the latest stable driver.

On a new freshly installed Ubuntu 14.04 beta, Catalyst 14.2 installed without any problem. Except it still doesn't allow you to enable multiple displays in a single desktop (only multi-desktop).

I installed Catalyst 14.2 Beta on my Centos 6.5/A10-7850 system.

The installation seemed to go fine, except that I got just a black screen upon reboot.  I can see the mouse cursor but nothing else.

Does anyone know how to fix this?

Tried again the latest driver. It's the third beta with support for a10-7850k. Fresh Ubuntu install. Still exactly the same issue. 

I gave up on AMD/ATI back in 2007 due to flawed Linux support when I decided to definitely move to Ubuntu. I thought of giving a new chance now with all the fuss about SteamOS, and hUMA seems like a very promising idea, but even the Windows drivers still have a long road ahead (got many BSOD, playing games, watching netflix full screen, enabling crossfire support). I've waited 3 months hoping this issue would be fixed, but my patience is over, I can't wait to have 2 monitors on Ubuntu anymore and/or wait until the Windows one gets more stable.

Releasing driver support at the end of January for a hardware that was released two weeks earlier should have really sounded a warning for me. I just hope someday AMD can give proper attention to drivers.
