I have the configuration mentioned in the title.
To name the exact problem :
I wanted to be a full Linux convert from windows. Bought very fast laptop but did not check graphics compatibility. Now after installing the proprietary driver from ati (amd) on Ubuntu 10.10 gives me "not supported" watermark on the right bottom. After checking some forums (google is your best friend) I discovered that my lap has 2 graphic cards, amd hd 6850m and intel hd3000 as secondary.
Also, after installing this driver It slows down my graphics (so slower as with the default open source).
Is there any way to unleash the potential of my graphics with this proprietary driver?
Is using the open source drivers the only option?
I don't think the actual ati graphic card is used, but the intel3000 by mistake.
PS: Natty gives no better results
Edit 15.12.2011 : It works, it works !!! I`m so happy :)
- Installed build-essential
- Downloaded the newest catalyst from amd site
- Ran install sudo sh Amd...xxx.sh
I guess also the install is better to do BEFORE installing pae kernel. Thank you guys
