    ATI Radeon HD 3670 and Ubuntu

    Hello,

    I can't find it in the hardware support page, so has anyone tried ATI Radeon HD 3670 with ubuntu? Can you share your experience?

    Thank you

    Thank you
    The Radeon HD 3670 will work in Linux as it is fully supported by AMD's fglrx driver (the "restricted" one that Ubuntu prompts you to install) and has 2D support with the standard free "ati" driver. I have a Radeon HD 3850 running nicely under Linux with the fglrx driver, and the 3850 is very similar to your 3670 in terms of hardware.

    I believe that he tried one version of that driver and it failed. Trying different versions can sometime solve problems like these.

    How do you install different versions of this driver?

    I have just installed Jaunty on my brand new Dell Studio XPS 16 with an ATI Radeon HD 3670 graphics card and am experiencing some problems with the proprietary driver which I have described in the following bug report: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+bug/363533

    In short the proprietary driver which I need for 3D support makes most graphics operations unstable when used with an external screen and resume from sleep also does not work.

    Only version 9.4 is compatible with Ubuntu 9.04. The list of supported cards is in the release notes at http://support.amd.com/us/gpudownloa...uct=2.4.1.3.37

    Installing an earlier driver will crash your Ubuntu 9.04 (but not your Debian Lenny).

    Unsupported cards, listed in the Catalyst 9.3 notes as "legacy" http://support.amd.com/us/gpudownloa...1&lang=English will use the open source drivers, with some loss of performance.

    I have one of those, a Radeon Express 1250.

    If Im reading that right, does that mean that if I go to 9.04 my choices are:

    1. Stay on older unsupported proprietary drivers
    2. Move to the open drivers and not get 3D until 3D support comes to the open drivers?

    I suppose you would need the 9.4 proprietary driver for 3D effects. But as I understand it 9.4 is the most recent one and what do you mean by unsupported?
