Installing ATI Proprietary drivers
« on: April 08, 2008, 09:31:55 pm »
Hi all,

I have just updated the Wiki with the steps needed to install/configure the ATI Proprietary Graphics driver 'fglrx' under LinuxMCE-0710;

http://wiki.linuxmce.org/index.php/Display_Drivers#Installing_The_ATI_Driver

We have tested the driver with on-board Radeon X1250 chipsets & UI2 + Overlay and it work really very well... see the Wiki for some minor issues.

All the best

Thanks for the tutorial on Wiki great work!

I am a new user of linux in general, so I have a question on this;

Step 2

From another machine ssh into the partially installed MD. Do the following from the console;

sudo su - <return>
ssh moonNN <return> (**where the NN is the device number for the MD we're configuring**)
Now we're logged into the MD we are configuring as 'root' and we can install the ATI drivers and configure Xorg.conf;


How do I access "ssh" console?
