Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

Yes I compiled it, but I didn't install it on top of an existing installation or anything. I didn't give the driver a real rigorous test or anything either. I just started x, everything went smoothly and then ran glxgears to make sure my framerates were ok. Im not much of a gamer btw; I just like my screensavers to run smoothly
Hi Shade. I'm new to Linux , I just replaced windows with it. So far it's a lot easier to use than I envisioned. But I can't get the AMDGPU to perform as it did before. I have tried several different versions of catalyst to no avail. It looks like you got yours to work but the script you posted seems like so much gobbledygook to me. I don't know that much about programming. I'm using a Radeon HD7640G. Could you dumb the info down so I can do it.
The latest post is pushing almost 12 years. It is most likely completely invalid considering how things with computers change in 12 years. Please start a new post and provide as much detail as you can. If you are not running Slackware, find the forum of your distro as each distro handles video drivers differently (especially if you want to use proprietary drivers).
But a quick glance at your hardware shows it won't be supported by the amdgpu driver from AMD as this will only (eventually) support GCN hardware and your card does not use that architecture. Depending on the version of X your distro runs, you may only be able to use the opensource drivers as AMD doesn't support Xorg 1.18 with any non-amdgpu-pro drivers. However, don't worry, because the opensource drivers are actually pretty good for AMD.
