I want to use the open source Radeon driver for Ubuntu, but currently I'm using fglrx.
So, I went ahead and purged fglrx using
sudo apt-get remove --purge fglrx* and when I rebooted and ran
sudo lshw -c video, I still see
driver=fglrx_pci. I've followed the instructions here.
I'm not sure why I can't completely purge fglrx, is anyone else experiencing this? I also checked Synaptic Package Manager and Additional Drivers and it says I'm not using fglrx at all. I'm not sure if I'm really using fglrx now.
Have anyone else encountered this? Thanks.
