Code: Select all
mint Desktop # ./ati*
Created directory fglrx-install.IacsZk
Verifying archive integrity... All good.
Uncompressing ATI Proprietary Linux Driver-8.573.............................................................................................................
==================================================
 ATI Technologies Linux Driver Installer/Packager
==================================================

Error: ./default_policy.sh does not support version
default:v2:i686:lib::none:2.6.28-16-generic; make sure that the version is being
correctly set by --iscurrentdistro

Removing temporary directory: fglrx-install.IacsZk


@_@ ic that i have to make sure that the version is being correctly set by --iscurrentdistro, most likely, but i don't know how to even do that @_@

See if these instructions help at all (they've always worked for me):

According to this: https://a248.e.akamai.net/f/674/9206/0/ ... linux.html

That driver should support that card, by the kernel version I see you have did you also install the linux-image-restricted-modules-2.6.28-16-generic package.

I use the same kernel and had to make sure that this package was installed then just used the hardware driver section in the control center and let Mint to the rest, installed fine on reboot I was running compiz iin no time.
