I have tried all these ppas:
ppa:ubuntu-x-swat/updates but still my core profile version is at 3.3. All these help in updating the Mesa version which I know is the latest one currently, however the core profile version is stuck at 3.3 awfully!
My graphics card is AMD/ATI Turks XT Radeon HD 6670/7670 which as per Wikipedia page should support OpenGL 4.5.
I have read many askubuntu posts and other webpages none of them helped surprisingly given that it is a very old issue. I am also surprised how difficult it is to update drivers in case of linux! Please help!
