  1. Upgrading to 14.10 would not be my preferred...

    Upgrading to 14.10 would not be my preferred option since that would A) leave me with an unsupported OS for a few months, since 13.10 is only supported for 9 months, and B) commit me to upgrading...
  2. So I'm thinking of upgrading my Saucy Salamander...

    So I'm thinking of upgrading my Saucy Salamander to Trusty Tahr now that the final LTS is out. I figure I can remove 3.14.0-031400rc2-generic & other non-repo kernels that I fooled with, disable...

    I ordered an i3-4130 last week and just got the mobo today and noticed that it has 4 video outputs, VGA, DVI-D, HDMI & Display Port. Intel claims that a maximum of 3 simultaneous displays are...

    Nevermind, I installed 3.14rc2 from here: http://linuxg.net/how-to-install-kernel-3-14-rc-2-on-ubuntu-linux-mint-and-elementary-os/

    Big improvement on the open source driver (presumably radeonSI)....
  5. Not quite pre-chewed enough of a suggestion for...

    Not quite pre-chewed enough of a suggestion for my week teeth. I googled the paranthetical 'eg' and found this page, but I have no idea to cull a kernel out of it. ...
  6. Where are you folks getting your 3.13 kernels? ...

    Where are you folks getting your 3.13 kernels? The repos? I used an early 3.13 kernel and it seemed about the same as 3.12, i.e., not great.

    FWIW, on Debian testing after the new 3.12 kernel with flgrx I can move my cursor over to the far right edge of my right monitor, desktop effects are still disabled (Required X extensions (XComposite...

    Well, fglrx re-entered Debian testing, so now I can use both monitors on both Debian testing Jessie & Saucy Ubuntu 13.10, the former with fglrx, the later with radeonSI, oibaf & and an out-of-repo...
  9. Well, Fedora 20 won't help, I didn't bother to...

    Well, Fedora 20 won't help, I didn't bother to download it. It uses mesa 9x and 3.11 so it won't run radeon on a HD 7000, I don't think. ...
  10. I tried installing the current AMD fglrx driver...

    I tried installing the current AMD fglrx driver using their installation script, it failed, it gave me a cryptic message in its log which I posted a couple of days ago (along with a couple of...
  11. I glanced over the script and though I'm not too...

    I glanced over the script and though I'm not too wise in the ways of BASH it seemed like it did what I have already done, mmstick. But I figured I'd give it a throw, so I saved it to a text file &...
  12. Same crap after a reboot with a xorg.conf and the...

    Same crap after a reboot with a xorg.conf and the updated mesa stuff. I tried cinnamon, just for grins, black screens in 3d, in 2d I temporarily got access to my desktop and was able to click once...
  13. I THINK I had fglrx installed correctly a couple...

    I THINK I had fglrx installed correctly a couple of times, at least amdcccle didn't squawk and Ubuntu jockey claimed the proprietary driver was in use. I've kind of moved past that for the moment...
  14. So I downloaded and installed the beta driver...

    So I downloaded and installed the beta driver from the AMD web site, amd-catalyst-13.11-beta V9.4-linux-x86.x86_64.run. I restored my xorg.conf from my previous fglrx efforts. I rebooted and I...

    Well, no surprise, the different kernel did not change much. Amy Goodman is still looking a little under the weather. I'll try the AMD fglrx tomorrow.
    3.12.0-031200-generic #201311031935 SMP Mon...

    Well, two steps forward, one step back. I purged fglrx* and it wiped xvba-va-driver, which I gather is well and good. Installing the kernel ChrisXY suggested went smoothly:

    Thanks for the suggestions, I'll try ChrisXY's suggestion first and keep curaga's suggestion in mind if I see a good deal on a HD 6xxx card before the HD 7xxx drivers in the repos become useful.
  18. Suggestions about how to make a Radeon HD 7790 work decently?

    I admit, I'm a doofus, I impulsively bought a "PowerColor" AMD/ATI Bonaire XT [Radeon HD 7790/8770] card for $80 or so after MIR without doing any research first knowing that all the boffins advise...
