What Is The Difference Between "fglrx" and "fglrx-updates" Video Drivers?


In Linux Mint 17.3, my choice of video drivers, I have fglrx and fglrx-updates.

What's the difference?

Thank you,

Chris.

One is an entire version of the video drivers and one contains updates. You'd have to read more information from those to determine if the full version already contains the updates or if the updates are beyond that full version.
