Smile Installing drivers for hardware


Hi, I just installed Linux (Ubunto) for the first time and am still getting used to it.

I have a GA-8S648fx motherboard and a GV-R7032t Graphics card, and I dont know how or where to get drivers for them that allow them to work with Linux.

Any help would be great!!

Thanks
Landrew

Ati has linux drivers at their web side.

and as much as i see, GA-8S648fx audio and other chipsets are cupported in the kernel. run alsaconf as root to configure sound system.

Gigabyte's web page links to Ati's drivers. just download ati driver and read its install docs.
