ATI Radeon X1300 Works!

My ATI Radeon X1300 video card (Dell Optiplex 745) now works with the newest 8.33.6 driver which came out today.

  1. Download the new ATI Driver Installer

  2. chmod +x *.run

  3. fakeroot ./*.run --buildpkg Ubuntu/edgy

  4. sudo dpkg -i *.deb

  5. sudo module-assistant auto-install fglrx

  6. sudo /etc/init.d/gdm stop

  7. sudo modprobe -r fglrx

  8. sudo depmod -a

  9. sudo /etc/init.d/gdm start

  10. fglrxinfo

  11. fgl_glxgears

I still have a minor issue with the mtrr but it doesn't affect the 3D.


  1. Yup, same card with the dual DVI cables. I'm now set up with XGL goodness.

  2. [...] Update: I was able to get the ATI card to work when ATI corrected their driver in version 8.33.6. [...]
