I'm running Mint as a second OS together with Win XP. First time trying Linux.
I installed the Radeon X1950 drivers for my graphics card, and I'm pretty sure the screen resolution changed after that. (The install popped up automatically.) I'm not sure if it's working like it should, though. I tried installing a game to test, and the window kept flickering constantly a few times a second. It does seem to run properly other than that, though. (Some screensavers and suchlike seem to flicker like that, too.) But I can't play anything like that. Playing video files seem to work just fine... aside from being a little pixely... Odd.
Is there something else I need? Like something DirectX-esque? Or is my driver bad?
