Installing ATI Mobility X300 driver

Postby Serialized » Thu Jan 28, 2010 9:43 am

Hi forum

I am trying to install the on my laptop to unleash the little power my GPU has but I am running into a problem.
I can execute the installer no problems but I get the following output.

ATI Technologies Linux Driver Installer/Packager

Error: ./ does not support version
default:v2:i686:lib::none:2.6.31-14-generic; make sure that the version is being
correctly set by --iscurrentdistro

I'm guessing its because the distro I'm using (Linux Mint 8) isn't supported but it does have the options of installing to Ubuntu 9.04.

So my question is how can I install this driver on Linux Mint 8?
Is it possible? If not what are my options of getting OpenGL working?

Thanks for any input.

It should work it for Ubuntu, Linux Mint is based off of it.
