Re: Unable to use mint 14

kc1di Thank you for the replies and I apologize again for being rude. I find the current anti-AMD environment in the ubuntu community to be quite Orwellian considering that 8 to 10 years ago AMD was the preferred chipset amongst the ubuntu community. Now I see reports of regression of legacy Radeon ...

Re: Unable to use mint 14

Thanks for the replies. I am sorry if I seem rude but the fact is I am extremely frustrated. I shelled out $160 for a radeon r7 265 that doesn't perform as well as a Damaged nvidia 9500 (was mistaken earlier that card was 12 years old). I guess I should just be happy it at least run my RCA flatscree...

Re: Unable to use mint 14

Or try this: OK I don't get it, the files I need may still exist but my installation can't find them because it is not supported? Why bother anyway tomorrow I will need something else that is no longer available. t's even older than 14, which you installed knowing it wasn't a long-term release. act...

Unable to use mint 14

Why won't you let me install dependancies needed to compile a driver for my AMD video card on mint 14? I have 2 different installations of 17 and they are both worthless. The fact is that my 10 year old video card was faster on 14 (while it was still supported!) than a brand new card on 17 or 17.1. ...

Re: Mate 17 low FPS on NVIDIA C61 [GeForce 7025 / nForce 630

OK then friendly group eh? Mint 14 it is then since I really don't seem to be able to compile the kernel to install the proper drivers. The devs made a really nice GUI that doesn't work to install drivers or the devs change NVIDIA's drivers so they don't work when installed with the GUI. Great work ...

Mate 17 low FPS on NVIDIA C61 [GeForce 7025 / nForce 630a]

I just installed mint mate 17 and I am very unhhappy with it. I get extremely low FPS (around 5-30) playing Oolite. On the same system with mint 14 nadia I get a pretty stable 60. My system is also getting very hot which concerns me greatly. I've tried all the drivers in the driver manager except th...
