    Thumbs down Ubuntu 10.10 Meerkat Daily -- 'Installs On ATI 5000 With No Problems'

    Hello Ubuntu installer

    go to google type in 10.10 download the latest batch which as of June 16th is slightly oversized to fit on a CD. Instead burn it to a DVD and run the install.

    I used 10.04LTS and found way too many bugs, first off not being able to install without doing some testing and then finding that my ATI R5670 wasn't supported properly by ATI until you can install Ubuntu to get the Updated driver 10.5 from ATI website.

    This version 10.10 installed without any problems. I'm writing from within 10.10 from Meerkat.

    Then get the 10.6 Yes as of 6/16 new driver update from ATI and run the install for the Graphics card.

    here's the link: http://cdimage.ubuntu.com/daily-live/current/

    I hope this isn't a production system as 10.10 is still in alpha and could break at any time.I wouldn't recommend this unless you know how to fix your system.

    There is also a testing Forum for Maverick Meerkat release Here

    All Maverick threads should be posted there.

    Good Luck

    How is it working for you with the new catalyst driver ? It only supports xserver 1.7 and i thought meerkat had xserver 1.8 .

    Or has it not arrived yet ?
