Doesn't their support page auto-detect your card? No? You should be able to find it if they have one.

What's Pup call your card in hardinfo?

Yah, I see.. Win only. And you'd think they offer and online version for us Nix users.. Rolling Eyes

If Slacko isn't offering one in video upgrade, I sure you can find it manually because it'll be easier for YOU to punch in the numbers.

Desktop? Notebook? There's a bunch of choices there..

Yes is desktop, and drivers is here, I just dont know how to install that, I try same card and PC with Lubuntu and ubuntu but 9200 is not suported in that distros, so catalyst will not work and 3D either Sad


Because I try puppy again and maybe (HOPE) will success somehow.

so basicly I must download that file to /mnt and extract there but do that from terminal is hard for me, I dont know commands.

OK, well.. to me, nothing in the release notes appeared to be an issue.

The driver itself does have a rather *old* date --considering..

The install page looks straightforward enough.

You're running a savefile with room in /mnt/home?

How about the devx, and possibly the kernel src.. loaded?

I'm gonna assume the kernel src is a good idea.

For drivers, it's usually mandatory.

PAE kernel, right? OK, I see. They have the MUCH smaller headers pkg too if you were on a slow connection.

@ any rate, when these two are loaded, go into the directory where you saved the ATI installer.

Do the above with ROX. Once there, rt-clk and select "window" >> terminal here.

Run these one @ a time to get started:
Code:
chmod a+x ati-driver-installer-8.28.8.run
./ati-driver-installer-8.28.8.run

I see no reason you can't have their page opened for reference..

Just take your time Wink and follow directions.

@ the end, remember too:

  • Exit to close the driver installer.

  • Launch a terminal and run /usr/X11R6/bin/aticonfig --initial to configure the driver.

  • Reboot.

It didn't work because the install stopped after it couldn't detect the X server version.

Hmm, not sure about that old driver script anyway??

You'll have to relax for a moment. What I'd do is get myself a REAL terminal, not that lousy Urxvt garbage.

In PPM you can grab Sakura. Copy'n paste is MUCH easier for novices..
