Envy usually installs the latest driver available when that particular version of Envy was released. In other words, it does not look for the "latest" driver, it installs the driver it was coded to install. The author simply updates Envy as required to handle newer distros & drivers.
This means when there is a brand new driver release Envy will not use it until it has been updated to do so.
So to answer your question you need to check what driver Envy installed, and compare it to the latest driver from your GPU maker's support page.
PS: You don't have to mount in /media, that is just the default. You could put that folder on your desktop, or in any folder you want and define its path in fstab. I have a folder called Windows Partitions in my home folder with my NTFS partitions mounted in it. I also have a spare ext3 drive I use for backup mounted in /home as well. Keeps the desktop clutter to a minimum.
- Code: Select all
/dev/sda5 /home/tim/Windows\040Partitions/E200G ntfs-3g defaults,locale=en_US.UTF-8 0 0
/dev/sdb10 /home/tim/Windows\040Partitions/G270G ntfs-3g defaults,locale=en_US.UTF-8 0 0
/dev/sdc1 /home/tim/Backups ext3 defaults 0 0
I also changed the folder icons to look like drives so I know that these mount points address entire partitions. From there you can create sym-links to important folders on those partitions and place them where it's convenient (like links to my Windows media content in my Linux Videos & Music folders).
