another newbee with ati trouble

Postby bengan » Tue Jun 16, 2009 2:29 pm

hi all :)
does anybody know if the new ati driver 9.6 i think works with mint? i have trouble with the drivers that comes with mintupdate, cant get compiz to work and cant extend the grafics for the windows, when i try to it just flickers and tells me i cant use extended grafics, and in some cases i have found that one of the cores of the intel 8400 works for 100% , and the computer slows drastic for 1-2 min, or is there a solution of this? i have searched but i havent find something. please tell me the easy way beccause im new to linux and mint but i do like it :D
