View Full Version : [ubuntu] FirePro W5000 card support

April 28th, 2014, 06:53 PM
I have got a DELL computer with AMD FirePro W5000 (FireGL V) graphics card and windows 7 (http://www.fireprographics.com/ws/oem/dell/index.asp).
I want to install Ubuntu 14.04 on it.

Live CD works only with nomodeset kernel parameter. Without nomodeset all textures in GUI are corrupted (for example, background is just a white rectangle with some random coloured spots). The same **** happens with Mint Live CD.

Is it possible to get FirePro card to work on Linux without too much pain ?
