LM 19.2 on Mac Mini 5.1 - AMD Radeon HD 6630M

Post by FrankBKK »

Hi all,

I successfully installed Linux Mint 19.2 on a Mac Mini 5.1 (Mid 2011) - even the Apple BT Trackpad, Mouse and Keyboard are working (after some fiddling).

However, for the graphics adapter, reported as

Device-1: Intel 2nd Generation Core Processor Family Integrated Graphics
driver: N/A
Device-2: AMD Whistler [Radeon HD 6630M/6650M/6750M/7670M/7690M]
driver: N/A
Display: x11 server: X.Org 1.19.6 driver: ati,fbdev
unloaded: modesetting,radeon,vesa resolution: 1920x1080~77Hz
OpenGL: renderer: llvmpipe (LLVM 8.0 256 bits) v: 3.3 Mesa 19.0.8

I get a popup window
"Your system is currently running without video hardware acceleration"

Could anyone point me into the right direction how to resolve this issue ?
