Beta Catalyst 12.11 drivers or fglrx-experimental-9?
I'm running an ATi Radeon HD 6670 and I'm curious as to which beta/experimental driver to use.
There's the fglrx-experimental-9 (found at http://www.ubuntuupdates.org/package/core/precise/restricted/proposed/fglrx-experimental-9 ) which gives no error.
Then there's the Catalyst 12.11 beta found at AMD.com, which if I use Steam tells me I need to install an fglrx driver. Confused because both seem to have the same performance, so the question is which one is officially supported by the beta?
Thanks!

Both are supported but your best performance would be through the 12.11 beta it can be a pain to install though so if you want ease of use stick with the fglrx repository.

I have 12.11 installed now, how can I make Steam not bug me about not having a driver installed?

Instructions for installing fglrx package are here http://wiki.cchtml.com/index.php/Ubuntu_Quantal_Installation_Guide#Installing_Catalyst_Manually_.28from_AMD.2FATI.27s_site.29_BETA.2FEXPERIMENTAL I have a Radeon 6950 and the 12.11 beta is worse than 12.10 in TF2. I recommend the Ubuntu-X PPA at the top of that link.

The 12.11 beta drivers don't work as well as the fglrx-experimental-9
Remove all of the drivers that you have and install the experimental one from the link in the OP.
You can still hack away the watermark.
(By the way, with your watermark hacked off you either have to restore the UNSIGNED or force the uninstall, what I had to do with 12.11)
