Have you tried doing in automagically using envy-gtk? It's in the
repos and worked well for me.
Here's what it does:
install the ATI or the NVIDIA driver
EnvyNG is an application written in Python which will download the
latest ATI or NVIDIA driver or the Legacy driver (for older cards)
(according to the model of your card) from ATI or Nvidia's website
and set it up for you handling dependencies (compilers, OpenGL,
etc.) which are required in order to build and use the driver.
Also, I'm pretty sure the repos are up, at least the main USA ones.
Are you having problems with them or getting error messages when you
reload your package list?
And the name of the program is, "syNAPtic," not, "syMPAtic."
