Ask Ubuntu is a question and answer site for Ubuntu users and developers. It's 100% free.

I have installed legacy drivers on 12.10 using makson96 ppa. fglrxinfo detects my video, but ati loads vesa driver instead of fglrx. in xorg log i see, that fglrx can not detect my card and because of it loads vesa.

I think, that change of a bootloader will help. I have downgraded to grub 1, but the same result.

Thank you for support in advace.

What does the boot loader have to do with this? –  psusi Dec 11 '12 at 0:45
I do not believe that changing the bootloader would do anything. TBH flgrx not being used might have to do with the fact that you are using out of date drivers. –  Alex L. Dec 11 '12 at 2:28
it didn't help and i have reinstalled my ubuntu. i still face the same problem. i have asked a question here: askubuntu.com/questions/227721/… –  Lejo Dec 11 '12 at 8:10
