Apparently AMD/ATI graphics cards less than 5xxx series have been left behind in the latest drivers. This is a bit of a pain for me as I have a 24xx series in my media PC. I tried the stock XBMCbuntu 12 ISO for AMD, but this left me with a non-working system. Going back the XBMCbuntu 11 and then doing a manual package upgrade seems to work:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:team-xbmc/ppa
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install xbmc xbmc-bin
sudo apt-get upgrade
This upgrades everything, but keeps the base ubuntu install - so we get to keep the video drivers.
So I decided to take a leap and move VPS providers. Moving servers turns out to be hard work. Here is a list of useful stuff that I had to dig out again when setting up the new one -
- Spamassasin Setup
- Gitosis setup
- Some lighttpd alias setup info - leading to a whole host of other server admin tutorials
As I find more of these I will update them as and when...
