  1. [ubuntu] Re: 11.10 Oneiric (AMD 64) AMD E-450, ATI HD 6320 AMD Catalyst 11.8

    I've had very similar problems with an Acer Aspire 7535 (IIRC), which had a double ATI card (can't remember the exact models now), one low-end to save juice, the other high-end that should have...

    Re: ATI & Gnome 3 problems on Ubuntu 11.10

    Yeah, two:

    1) next time I'm gettin' an Nvidia card, that's for sure, as much as I love AMD

    2) I tried Fedora 16, Debian Wheezy, Precise Pangolin, and the result is always the same: the user...

    I had no problem so far with that... :shock:

    It would seem that there are many different machines out there, bearing the same name but built with VERY different components.

  4. [ubuntu] Re: 11.10 Oneiric (AMD 64) AMD E-450, ATI HD 6320 AMD Catalyst 11.8

    Same here on an Acer Aspire One 522 (C-50): I gave up on Linux on this one. Hell, even Windows 8 DP is light years more functional AND stable than any distro I've tried on this baby.

    Tried the 11.11 drivers on Oneiric, I have a C-50 based netbook. Installation (and uninstall) went smooth, but the performance was terrible, maybe actually worse than the open source driver (I'm...

    I'm glad I can help! I know a bit about these things because I have an AMD C-50 APU based netbook which sorely needs the proprietary drivers (otherwise its performance and battery life suck!), but on...

    The link I posted provided instructions on how to completely remove the proprietary fglrx driver and reinstall the open source radeon driver.

    Same problems here on a C-50 APU.
    The biggest issue for me is that the radeon driver keeps the fan going all the time (albeit not at full speed). I wouldn't really mind merely performance...

    Managed to uninstall the driver in recovery mode, rebooted, then tried to install it again from a root console (telinit 3), but I got the same results. And had to uninstall it again.

    On a 5570 the radeon driver works flawlessly (Flash @ 1080p??? :shock: ) for my very unprofessional needs--I don't think I'll touch a Catalyst driver ever again!
    I find GNOME3 a bit weird, as with...

    [ubuntu] Re: 11.10 Gnome Shell doesn't work properly

    I guess everyone has different priorities, and different systems... Having a C50-based netbook my priorities are the latest (11.9 as of now... any word on when 11.10 might become available?)...

    Furthermore, I think this feature is strictly software--but I might be mistaken...

    Correction: the speaker now goes mute when earphones are connected (on Xubuntu 11.10). Maybe the issue was present in 11.04 and is now fixed, or there are enough differences between Ubuntu and...

    There surely must be a logical reason, but it's well beyond my understanding! Why should a NetBoot attempt avoid a kernel freeze later, or in your case allow you to boot on battery, is beyond me...
