My first attempt w/Linux and so far I'm excited but frustrated with all the new terminology. I'm running 12.04 LTS on an older Athlon 1800 and Radeon 9200 ATI AGP dual monitor board. I don't use the VGA at all just the DVI output. From what I've read I get my old board is kinda wonky and doesn't play nice with Linux so please be kind. Youtube I get a black box for video and that's it. I plunked in a DVD and it won't play anything. Sound works fine and no audio problems. Screen Res is 1680x1050 and photos look good so everything but videos.
Anyone have a clue what's up here?
