    9.10 and ati radeon hd3450

    i have an ati radeon hd3450 512mb graphics card and it didn't seem to work at all with 9.10. i tried to boot from the live cd but it would only boot to a text login. whats really weird is that the text login kept blinking and i could only type a letter when i could see the text (which made typing the password impossible because i couldn't tell if i had typed anything or not). Anyway, i installed ubuntu with the alternate cd and then tried to boot from the harddrive, but it did the same thing as with the live cd. finally i put my older nvidia card in there just for now.

    i really want to get my ati card to work. i looked at their website and it seems like it supports linux. i then checked in 9.10 software repositories and found an "ati catalyst control center" or something like that. is that the driver i need? or something else? how would i go about installing it? install it first and then shutdown and put the video card in? or something else?

    thanks

    i have an ati hd3650, which is a similar card to yours.
    you have a couple of options at this point.

    install the ubuntu drivers (may have problems with high xorg memory use, see
    https://bugs.launchpad.net/xserver-x...sa/+bug/450048)

    install the drivers using envyng
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install envyng-core
    sudo envyng -t
    or downloading the driver from the ati site and installing it.

    using envyng is preferred.

    +1 Does EnvyNG fix it? (btw: this is available from Applications -> Ubuntu Software Centre -> System Tools)

    I have an HD 3400 but will wait for 2.6.32.
    KMS support for R6xx and R7xx GPUs of the Radeon HD series 2000, 3000 and 4000 will be added in Linux 2.6.32.
    See h-online for more details and follow the links.

    Home PC -- Xubuntu 12.10

    be careful, but you can easily try the 2.6.32 with:

    See if the 9.04 live cd works. If it works you might be able to install, then upgrade to 9.10

    I am curious about this issue though...I have a 3650, but I haven't used the 9.10 live cd yet.

    actually I would go
    1. - Ubuntu hardware drivers
    2. download from ati site and install
    3. envy

    reason I list envy last is because alot of people have issues that come into the IRC chat where envy has hosed systems. I agree its nice and easy but it does cause issues.
    Debian Testing(64bit) + XFCE4 AM2 5200+ ATI Radeon HD4350, 4gig RAM,320Gig and 750gig HDs

    what's the difference between an answer and a solution? An answer is what they want to hear, a solution is what they don't want to hear
