Hello, I have installed catalyst control panel and it's running ok. My graphics card ATI radeon HD5450 is also installed. But problem is, when I start using my pc, there's a watermark saying "AMD unsupported Hardware" at the right bottom of the screen. How to get rid of it? Everything else is now fine. Thanks in advance.

I found this after a bit googling

Put this in a text file and save it as fixwatermark.sh

#!/bin/sh
DRIVER=/usr/lib/fglrx/xorg/modules/drivers/fglrx_drv.so
for x in $(objdump -d $DRIVER|awk '/call/&&/EnableLogo/{print "\\x"$2"\\x"$3"\\x"$4"\\x"$5"\\x"$6}'); do
sed -i "s/$x/\x90\x90\x90\x90\x90/g" $DRIVER
done

then

chmod a+x fixwatermark.sh

as root

./fixwatermark.sh

It's nice to know that we use the same graphics card. but after I type ./fixwatermark.sh as root user, it says objdump: '/usr/lib/fglrx/xorg/modules/drivers/fglrx_drv.so': No such file

What should I do?

if you have 64 bit system ,you have to replace DRIVER=/usr/lib/fglrx/xorg/modules/drivers/fglrx_drv.so with /usr/lib64/xorg/modules/drivers/fglrx_drv.so
