hey guys


im so glad the newest version of ubuntu finds the appropriate ati driver for me and it works!

i was wondering if i would need a 64 bit graphics driver if i switched to 64 bit ubuntu

and if thats the case
how would i go about checking if it exists?


thanks

Hi,

I installed Ubuntu 64 last week and hardware/drivers had Two Nvidia drivers listed for my pc . I would think Ubuntu would detect a needed driver for Ati as well .

Just type it in to your favorite search engine . In my case the driver was needed to get
Ubuntu booting properly. The monitor was losing the signal at boot or flickering with out it.
