I have never used a Version of ubuntu that would not install the REAL AMD drivers for my HD 6870 videocard
after a clean install i get the pop-up that says Additional drivers are available and needed for full 3D support .
i click on the driver and it says its downloading and installing only to not work
i am stuck with what every cruddy basic driver ubuntu has loaded.
I need the Real drivers for my card not the ones that give crappy 3D support .
why is it that something as simple as video card drivers work out of the box in windows or mac but in linux its such a problem that i had to leave and go back to windows just to get video drivers to work.
this is why there never will be a year of the desktop linux
my question is how do i install AMD drivers without having to spend all day trying to get them to work .
am i wasting my time ?
