I have installed Linux Mint 14 Nadia on a machine with an oldish ATI graphics card the "Advanced Micro Devices [AMD] nee ATI RV370 [Radeon X550]" It used the free drivers on install default and I have tried to get it to use hardware acceleration so went to the AMD site and downloaded the "ati-driver-installer-9-3-x86.x86_64.run" which apparently was needed for this card, however, when I try and run the driver it gives this error -
Error: ./default_policy.sh does not support version default:v2:i686:lib::none:3.5.0-17- generic; make sure that the version is being correctly set by --iscurrentdistro
and if I do
I don't see my version? So I kind of installed the "wrong" version and now it doesn't look to good It seems to me that AMD are not supporting older cards on later releases? Is this true and if so how do I get it working?
