    8.04 Generic Video

    Hi guys, I just upgraded to 8.04 and apart from a few minor issues (which will get resolved eventuall) but the first issue is of course the video card.

    I have already read that dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg doesn't seem to work.

    Anyway the video card performance is not as good as the performance when I had it configured with 7.10. I am pasting my 7.10 file and my current file. I copy/pasted 7.10 configuration in the 8.04 conf file but doesn't seem to have any performance impact.

    At a guess you need to install the video driver - sys>admin mneu - hardware drivers

    Well, there is nothing in that list. The message is

    No proprietary drivers are in use in this system.


    How do I reconfigure my video, is there any other way?

    Next best would be to install through either synaptic or use envyng, which is in synaptic now as well.
