http://askubuntu.com – I am trying to setup my 3D graphics card. $ lspci -nn | grep VGA 01:00.0 VGA compatible controller [0300]: Advanced Micro Devices [AMD] nee ATI RV770 [Radeon HD 4850] [1002:9442] According to the Radeon Driver open source driver page, my card is very well supported. I followed the instructions to set it up (very simple now that there is not a lot of mucking about in xorg.conf). I checked to see the driver was installed properly: $ dmesg | grep drm [ 3.542014] [drm] Initialized drm 1.1.0 20060810 [ 3.613929] [drm] radeon defaulting to kernel modesetting. [ 3.613933] [drm] radeon k (HowTos)
