    Ati Mobility Radeon HD 5650 cannot installed with Catalyst 13.xx and up

    imorers

      I have acer aspire 4745G runs on ubuntu 12.04. The problem is this cannot be installed with catalyst 13.xx nor fglrx 13.xxx in repository. So I stuck in fglrx 12.100 from ubuntu repository (fglrx-experimental-12).

      So I cannot install latest driver provided by amd (like Catalyst beta 13.11 v 9.5)
      This lead me to worry with future release ubuntu 14.04 LTS that I cannot install newer driver.
      My other PC desktop with ATi Radeon 6550 has no problem.

       

      Anybody knows ho to solve it?
      Please AMD fix it! I've been user of ATi Card since 2004.
