Today I installed Ubuntu Natty on my computer. Everything works fine but I'm having problems with the drivers for my graphics card (AMD Radeon HD 5850). Without installing any additional drivers, everything works fine, except that the game Minecraft is quite unplayable due to the missing good 3D-acceleration...
I installed the current drivers from amd.com and now I'm having two problems:
My new laptop comes with an ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5850 card, however I cannot seem to be able to find a working driver for this.
I have the new beta release of Ubuntu installed. I have tried to install the desktop version of the cards drivers, but these wont work either (errors saying no ati device is found). The card works fine in Windows 7 Home Premium.
One of my 5850s went out so I purchased a 280x since it is faster than my previous crossfire config. I still want to use my other 5850 for feathercoin mining. Everything works fine when the 280x is in the primary slot but if gets way too hot. I tries switching them but now my PC doesn't even show the 280x i n device manager.
