Using ubuntu 12.04 LTS for the last year, but still this problem has kept me in the dark!
Anyone out there please guide me to set up AMD Raedon HD64700M graphics driver in my Dell Inspiron N4050 properly. Last half a dozen times it had resulted in a
could not write - broken pipe error, which was a real pain to revert it back to normal config! Even I had to do a full re-install in couple of occassions.
Note : My system actually is a Integrated Dual Graphics system, having Intel HD 3000 co-existing with AMD
My system config :
Intel i5, 4GB RAM, Dell Inspiron n4050 64 bit (Dual Booted Windows 8)
uname -r : 3.8.0-29-generic
Current Driver Status :
display: :0 screen: 0 OpenGL vendor string: Tungsten Graphics, Inc OpenGL renderer string: Mesa DRI Intel(R) Sandybridge Mobile OpenGL version string: 3.0 Mesa 8.0.4
I have tried all the tutorials that claims to be the best method, only to land in broken pipe error.
If anyone is up for the challenge, it would be awesome! :)
