View Full Version : [ubuntu] Ongoing issue with ATI X200M Graphics Card

Thanks! I finally got the wireless up and running (had to use wicd).
Now I want to work on the graphics for the 3-D and rendering and such.
This is what I have:

01:05.0 VGA compatible controller: ATI Technologies Inc Radeon XPRESS
200M 5955 (PCIE) (prog-if 00 [VGA controller])
Subsystem: Hewlett-Packard Company Unknown device 3091
Flags: bus master, 66MHz, medium devsel, latency 255, IRQ 16
Memory at c8000000 (32-bit, prefetchable) [size=128M]
I/O ports at 9000 [size=256]
Memory at c0100000 (32-bit, non-prefetchable) [size=64K]
[virtual] Expansion ROM at c0120000 [disabled] [size=128K]
Capabilities: <access denied>

I tried the things on the Ubuntu wiki but have the "MESA" error. I
guess I could "start over". Basic graphics and online are no problem.
Any suggestions?

You don't say what release you're using. If it's Hardy, enable the restricted drivers manager. I've heard it does all the graphics for you.
I use Envy (http://albertomilone.com/nvidia_scripts1.html) for all my graphics. Works a treat!
If you try it, read the FAQs first. I'd also recommend using the removal options in Envy to clean up any residual driver stuff before installing.
