Sudo apt-get install

Hello, Running Kubuntu 5.10 I am following the guide for installing the ATI driver. In one of the steps it says to run:  "then do: sudo module-assistant build,install fglrx-kernel" when i do that i get: "sudo: module-assistant: command not found" Then I try to get the package but i get the following: $ sudo apt-get install module-assistant Reading package lists... Done Building dependency tree... Done Package module-assistant is not available, but is referred to by another package. This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or is only available from another source E: Package module-assistant has no installation candidate Please, help. Thanks in advance.

ATI drivers

 Have a go at this I found it on the web when a mate of mine had a similar problem      Where did you download the file to? Is it in your home directory? If so you want to do the following in a terminal: $ cd ~ (this changes directory to your home) $ sudo sh ./ Ubuntu does allow you to log in as root as in other distros, you need to use sudo instead (SUperuser DO) and then enter your password. Just having a quick look on the web it looks as though the ATI drivers have got up to version 8.16.20....Neil

Hi Neil, thanks for the

Hi Neil, thanks for the reply. I downloaded it in the home dir /home/mike/ . Followed your post and looks like that did it. I was following the how to from here Looks like the Module-Assistant is an Unstable distribution. Is there way to get Unstable releases with APT-GET?

I think I see the problem...

From what you have said so far, I would suspect that you have missed step 2. in the wiki guide... 2. Make sure the "Universe" versions of the Ubuntu repositories are enabled. To enable the extra repositories I would look over this wiki guide.  It might have been helpful if they had included a link to the adding repository guide in the ATI how to.
