Re: Radeon HD5450 with Linux Mint?

Actually, I think that internet slowness may have an anomaly. I've got a live sports stream going and that's a solid test for my backwoods broadband speeds.

Hurray! My TV viewing computer is off of windows!!!!

Thanks for the help everybody!

Re: Radeon HD5450 with Linux Mint?

You're right about me shutting up about drivers! The screen was blown out (to where I had to hunt off screen to find the start and bottom bar buttons) and there was no sound, so I assumed that was dependent on the driver.

Re: Radeon HD5450 with Linux Mint?

No dice. On a fresh install of Mint 18.2 Cinnamon, I tried to install that AMD Catalyst 15.9 driver and got the error message:

Error: Dependency is not satisfiable: fglrx-core.

Any suggestions?



Thanks,

Re: Radeon HD5450 with Linux Mint?

So Rob, with Mint 18 and a pre-6000 radeon (HD5450), I'm SOL? And I would have to switch to Ubuntu 14.04.22? Or would Ubuntu have the same out-dated lack of support issues where an HD5450 HDMI card will not play nice with any modern linux version?

Re: Radeon HD5450 with Linux Mint?

What do you mean by "moved the DVI connector over? All I remember from my first attempt at this was that the driver took a ridiculous amount of time to install (hours) and I had no sound after. However, I re-downloaded the driver so maybe it's been updated, and maybe I can dig deeper past the obviou...

Re: Radeon HD5450 with Linux Mint?

Did you mean "HDMI" instead of "HTML"?

If so, then I follow and am psyched. I really want that computer away from win 7 and into mint!!!


Thank you very much,

Re: Radeon HD5450 with Linux Mint?

Hmmmm....I love these encouraging responses. I tried this over the summer and it wouldn't install on Mint, but I don't remember the details of why. I guess I'll try just obliviously installing in on Mint this weekend. yertchuk, did you pre-install any of the following to get that to work or did thes...

Radeon HD5450 with Linux Mint?

Hi, I'm a Linux rookie, but I love Linux Mint 18.2 Cinnamon 64-bit so far. I built a retro gaming machine with it and now I want to install it on my main TV watching computer which feeds video to my TV via an HDMI HD5450 1G DDR3 PCI-E card. The release notes from AMD state: Distributions supported: ...
