JDO error: Specified enum getter-by-value for field...

Specified enum getter-by-value for field ... gave an error on extracting the enum so just using the ordinal : null

This is a very vague message that could occur due to a very common mistake. Which is writing your enum getter-by-value or value-getter methods to accept or return numbers that aren't of the type "short"

I don't know if there is a way to bypass this restriction.

Install AMD Catalyst 13.12 Driver with patch on Ubuntu 13.10

This is a copy-paste post from this one only for my personal reference and just in case the original post is gone for any reason.

  • Download amd-catalyst-13.12-linux-x86.x86_64.zip
  • Extract it and you will get amd-catalyst-13.12-linux-x86.x86_64.run
  • chmod +x amd-catalyst-13.12-linux-x86.x86_64.run
  • ./amd-catalyst-13.12-linux-x86.x86_64.run --extract catalyst
  • cd catalyst
  • Apply the patch manualy:
at the end of the file catalyst/common/lib/modules/fglrx/build_mod/kcl_acpi.c, starting with line 990, there is
    if (!ACPI_SUCCESS(acpi_get_table_with_size(id, 0, &hdr, &tbl_size)))
    tbl_size = 0x7fffffff;
    if (!ACPI_SUCCESS(acpi_get_table(id, 0, &hdr)))
delete everything to the end of the file and replace with this
    if (!ACPI_SUCCESS(acpi_get_table_with_size(id, 0, &hdr, &tbl_size)))
    tbl_size = 0x7fffffff;
    if (!ACPI_SUCCESS(acpi_get_table(id, 0, &hdr)))
        return KCL_ACPI_ERROR;
    return KCL_ACPI_OK;
  • sudo ./ati-installer.sh 13.251 --buildpkg Ubuntu/saucy
  • Change owner and group (from root to your user) for generated .deb files placed one directory up (sudo chown fglrx* and sudo chgrp fglrx*), and install them all via Software Center (or from command line as root).
To open amdcccle, run this sudo /usr/lib/fglrx/bin/amdcccle
