    1. You will have to download the drivers manually from the source:
      http://support.amd.com/en-us/download/desktop?os=Linux+x86

      Delete
  2. Thank You!

    I have struggled for far longer than I care to admit to successfully get any fglrx drivers to work with my AMD7790 and this finally worked!

    I have never seen anyone else suggest stopping the graphic session first.

    My only suggestion is to put a sudo apt-get zip instruction in as most don't have it installed

  3. You need to add a referer after the

    wget -c

    --referer=http://support.amd.com

    so wget -c --referer=http://support.amd.com http://www2.
