How to check fglrx's version?
I would like to find out how to determine which version fglrx driver I am using. I installed it from deb package(precise-proposed). I can not find version number (like 12.11beta8).
Where should I look for?

Have you tried searching on Google?

First hit I got was (Ubuntu 10.04 however):

AFAICT there's no mention of beta in the driver itself? I could be wrong though.

The run file that you (or the distro maintainer) gets from amd's site has a variable called label inside but for both beta 8 and beta 11 it says label="AMD Catalyst(TM) Proprietary Driver-9.01.8" which makes me wonder if the 8 referred to beta 8 and they forgot to update it for 11?

An earlier beta just had label="AMD Catalyst(TM) Proprietary Driver-9.01" so perhaps that is significant.

If you look in amdcccle under the information tab for the driver packaging version, you should see a long version number starting 9. mine (beta 11) is something like

Driver packaging version 9.01.8-121115a-149744E-ATI

Presumably that will differ between each beta so if you post yours someone might identify it.

Again, I think perhaps the .8 should be .11 if they'd been consistent but I assume the string will differ between each beta regardless.

*To remove the testing watermark*

sudo gedit /etc/ati/signature

Replace "UNSIGNED" with:

Have you tried the glxinfo command? i think it's in the mesa-utils package and should include the version of the glx you're running as part of the output:

Instructions type stuff:

sudo apt-get install mesa-utils

glxinfo | grep OpenGL
