Help me find fglrx-legacy distro
 
Hi, Can anyone tell me if there's a Gnome Shell distro that comes with the latest fglrx-legacy (Radeon 4250) preinstalled? Thanks.

That wouldn't make much sense, since a pre-installed legacy driver would effectively close out users with newer video-cards. What is the problem with just installing the legacy driver on a distro of your choice?

I tried installing on Ubuntu, but it was a big headache because Unity wouldn't load, etc. Actually Chakra (KDE) ships with both catalyst and catalyst-legacy and uses whichever depending on the card, so I wondered if there was a similar distro for Gnome. I'm going to reformat once again and give Ubuntu lts a try installing the drivers, but a non-unity version.

Try Mint, which pays more attention to older computers than Ubuntu.
