Hi Rich,
You left out the important bit: which ATI card do you have? and what ATI packages have you installed?

Rich1540 08-19-2009 11:18 PM

ati graphics card
series 1200
havent installed any divers tryed catylst control center and that was it are the drivers there that i need or do i have to them !
the drivers were installed by ubuntu,they are x server-ati display wrapper and x org s server ati radeon display driver ?

ati graphics
there are other drivers in the package manager do i add these before catylst control center,like the tv out and about four other ones or is this all i get like i said ubuntu is alot better than windows so far but still reading and always leaning, losing sleep and loving it !
This site is great !

Hi Rich,
If you want 3D acceleration you'll probably want the fglrx driver. The packages may be available in the Ubuntu repos or you might have to download them from ATI and build them yourself. If you are running the 2.6.30 kernel then the packages should be ok for you.

it installed the 1:6.12.1 can i put in the others like the tv out i like to watch movies on the tv also but this is as far as i go mostly read and love to try and figure out new problems !

the accelerator drivers are there in package manager but if i install them with the drivers i already have installed is this going to cause the same problem i started with i mean the screen going black after reboot becouse this causes a real headache having to reinstall ubuntu to get thing running again!
