What's the difference between Minimal (Non-X Support) Ubuntu driver and regular driver?

Discussion created by coordz on Jun 30, 2015

There appears to be two available drivers for Ubuntu 14.04:

 

"AMD Catalyst™ 15.5 Proprietary Ubuntu 14.04 x86_64 Video Driver for Graphics Accelerators"

 

and

 

"AMD Catalyst™ 15.5 Proprietary Ubuntu 14.04 x86_64 Minimal Video Driver for Graphics Accelerators (Non-X Support)"

 

What is the difference between these two drivers and which one should I use? The "Minimal" driver is 8Mb larger than the regular driver.....

 

Thanks!
