    Since that card hasn't been supported by fglrx/Catalyst in years, that's irrelevant to this thread...

    Unhappy Re: fglrx with kernel 3.4

    What is relevant? This is
    Advanced Micro Devices [AMD] nee ATI Wrestler [Radeon HD 6310]
    on a Acer Aspire 5253 wide screen bought new Oct 2010. Has an external monitor.
    As of 15 June update Systems Settings "Displays" is still busted comes up in some wierd resolution and "apply" fails see Bug #1007588 so I have to manually turn off the laptop monitor always boots with Quantal on full bright (ouch) and issue a CLI xrander to get going sort of.
    This is on quantal Alpha 32 bit installed then all up to date. (The Acer will do 64 bit I'll look at that some time.)
    Precise "Displays" works just fine.

    Re: fglrx with kernel 3.4

    New package pushed by Alberto Milone means manual patching is unnecessary. Also, kernel 3.5 support. Yay!

    Re: fglrx with kernel 3.4

    Using the KDE plasma desktop (gnome and ubuntu crash), I lost fglrx support in updating to quantal, but today (Mon 6/18 ) I got it back. I saw some discussion here about how to install fglrx into quantal working from the ATI distribution package, but I decided I'd rather wait and get a working version from the Ubuntu repositories through the regular upgrade process. So, for anyone in a similar fix, try upgrading again and you may get a working fglrx. It's nice to have the rotating cube for workspaces and translucent windows back.

    Thumbs down Re: fglrx with kernel 3.4

    Just went to AMD's Website only to find that my ATI Radeon X300 is only Legacy Supported by AMD! This must be the reason why Kernel's 3.4 and 3.5 don't recognize my Video Card.

    It's been that way for 3 years. I'm not sure what you mean by "kernel doesn't recognize my video card", but you should start your own thread on that (and provide /var/log/Xorg.0.log ).

    Are you using the sysinfo program? That's a common/known bug with that program. Don't worry about it.

    Hey Jerry, today I tried installing x86 12.10 Daily-Live on all of my other 3 PC's and the only one that had the display problems like the ATI Radeon X300 was my other desktop which has, you guessed it, an ATI Radeon 3200 HD Video Card!

    P.S. The NVIDIA and the Intel Video Cards ( in the other two computers) had no problems at all.
