To begin with, I am new Ubuntu user. I moved from the Win XP and felt in love with the Linux family straight away.
But I faced hardware problem with graphics card and I will be very gratefull if you help me to solve it.
My ubunutu version: 12.04.04 LTS (all updates installed during installation +those installed after the installation process).
Please, don't try to encourage me to move to the newest version. I know it does exist, but I don't want it, cause not everything is properly translated and fully stable.
My graphics card: ATI RADEON HD4670 AGP (8X).
My processor: Intel Pentium 4 2.8 Ghz Hyper-Threating (I read that disabling hype-threating may help, but it doesn't).
My graphics card after system installation appears to be "Unknown", "Interface: Standard".
I tried to enable the 3D acceleration by installing the driver from the AMD site. No go (Card not supported).
So I tried to install fglrx (propierity).
After installation of the fglrx and fglrx-amdcccle i tried to configure the xorg.conf automatically:
it says: no supported adapters found.
$ sudo aticonfig --initial
I checked the bus ID
and tried to create the xorg.conf manually
but the system does not boot this way (says that it must run in low settings but doesn't allow me anywhere but into console. So i removed the driver from the console (apt-get remove, rm xorg.conf), and now it boots.
$ sudo gedit /etc/X11/xorg.conf
Identifier "aticonfig Layout"
Screen 0 "aticonfig-Screen-0" 0 0
Option "VendorName" "ATI Proprietary Driver"
Option "ModelName" "Generic Autodetecting Monitor"
Option "DPMS" "true"
Option "AGPMode" "4"
Viewport 0 0
I have no idea how to enable 3D acceleration in this card.
Would you be so kind and help me with this?
