Installing SDK Linux

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hey guys,

So I'm new to Linux, just installed Ubuntu today. I'm really confused right now due to how different it is. Currently, I'm trying to install AMD's SDK 2.4. I've downloaded it and extracted it from the website, but now I'm lost. I don't know what I'm supposed to run/start to install it. Can anyone help me here?

Thanks.

One of the things Linux does differently than Windows is package management. Think of the Add / Remove programs in the control panel, but with more power. All linux distros have a package manager that [you guessed it] manages the applications installed on the machine. They download, unpack, and even update all the programs.

Whenever possible, use the package manager to install programs. If you're afraid of the command line, you use the software center. If you aren't afraid of a little terminal-foo:
Code:
sudo apt-get install <package> #installs packages
sudo apt-cache search <string> #searches the repositories for packages
sudo apt-get update #updates the local list of programs
sudo apt-get upgrade #compares installed program versions to updated package list and updates programs

ATI support on Linux is spotty to begin with, and IIRC the Xfire drivers are even worse. It's been a while since I've tried to install the proprietary ATI drivers on Linux, as I don't do anything 3D save for desktop effects and the open source ATI driver handles those well enough.
