I am trying to set up an old PC with an ATI 9200 SE. The only ubuntu distro to support ati's 8.28.8 drivers (the last driver to support 9200) is edgy 6.10. So i installed it (mint bianca version) and tried to install fglrx driver with no success:


root@mint2:/home/grigory# dpkg -l |grep fglrx
ii fglrx-control 8.28.8+2.6.17.9-12.4 Control panel for the ATI graphics accelerators
ii xorg-driver-fglrx 7.1.0-8.28.8+2.6.17.9-12.4 Video driver for ATI graphics accelerators

dpkg -l |grep restr
ii linux-restricted-modules-2.6.17-10-generic 2.6.17.7-10.1 Non-free Linux 2.6.17 modules on x86_64 generic
ii linux-restricted-modules-common 2.6.17.7-10.1 Non-free Linux 2.6.17 modules helper script
ii linux-restricted-modules-generic 2.6.17.10 Restricted Linux modules for generic kernels

I run a computer with an ati 9200SE card and it is well supported by the open source ati/radeon driver that comes with jaunty, running compiz without a problem, and also did with hardy, if I remember correctly. Is there a good reason for using edgy? It is no longer supported and there will be no updates for it in future. See if you can get jaunty to try instead and you may find that the graphics card is as good as you need without installing any drivers for it.

i have a jaunty installation on the same PC in mulitboot. But I can not get enough fps from the open source driver to play UrbanTerror :)
Jaunty seem to run too slow on this machine too. So i would like to set up proprietary driver.
