How do I check to see that my ATI Radeon 9800 drivers are installed?
Hi, all --
My video seems to be a bit sluggish, and I'm worried that my drivers for my graphics card are not working/installed. I heard that debian etch -- my distro -- automatically installs all the drivers I need, but how can I make sure that it has installed these ones? I downloaded the drivers from the ATI website just in case, but even when I try to run them as root, I get "Permission Denied."
So, please help... 1) How can I check to see that my hardware (in general) is properly installed, and 2) If it turns out it's not, how do you go about installing drivers for linux?
