Hardware: AMD 6870 Twin Frozr II (1GB), ASUS 990 chipset
Software: Ubuntu 11.10
Built a new PC from scratch, loaded it with Ubuntu 11.10. It's displaying, but with poor resolution, unable to change, as it says no drivers are installed.
Ubuntu indicates that there are 2 proprietary drivers available to download:
- ATI/AMD proprietary FGLRX Graphics driver (Post-release update)
- ATI/AMD proprietary FGLRX Graphics driver
The first won't even finish downloading.
The second downloads and installs, but when I restart the PC as requested it boots up, I see purple in the background, then the video feed just stops with a black screen. I can still hear ubuntu boot up though.
It seems like I just need the latest drivers, googled around and not had much luck. I'm pretty new with Ubuntu, but have basic knowledge. Any potentially helpful information would be welcome.
