My System Specs


The ubuntu installation of ati drivers is mostly easy now. You point and click in the software center.

However, the SDK and SDL drivers gave me a huge headache because I had to try 5 different versions to get it to work with my 69xx cards (2.7 works fyi).

Also, I had to manually un-tar the opencl folder inside a tarred folder aswell. The auto install didn't work as it should have.

So, in summary, it was as easy to install the "gaming" drivers, but the opencl stuff was WAY WAY easier to install on my nvidia card due to some difficulties installing python-pyopencl on ati based systems. On the nvidia system all I did was type "sudo apt-get install python-pyopencl". I don't think this matters to non-miners though.
