Hi folks I'm trying to install the ATI drivers on this machine running Ubuntu 9.10.
Hi folks, I have a Compaq 6715b and I just installed Ubuntu 9.10 AMD64.
I can't seem to get the driver installation right.
I downloaded downloaded ati-driver-installer-9-3-x86.x86_64.run
justin@Ubuntu-lappy:~/Downloads$ sh ati-driver-installer-9-3-x86.x86_64.run
Created directory fglrx-install.yPqZeU
Verifying archive integrity... All good.

*Error: ./default_policy.sh does not support version*
default:v2:x86_64:lib::none:2.6.31-16-generic; make sure that the version is being
correctly set by --iscurrentdistro
Removing temporary directory: fglrx-install.yPqZeU
Then I tried using apt-get
sudo apt-get install xorg-driver-fglrx
and it seems to go through without a hitch - but I still can't get the proper resolution on my screen.
