ATI proprietary driver installation on Mandriva free (+some tweaking)
I have Mandriva free 2010.2 with KDE and I'm trying to install the proprietary drivers for my Radeon x800 XL graphics card by following the guide on Mandriva community wiki. I have enabled the non-free and non-free updates repositories but when I open the graphical server configuration panel and try to select the graphics card I don't get any message about proprietary drivers.
The graphics settings are configured as follows:
Graphics card: ATI Radeon X1950 and earlier
Resolution: Automatic (24bpp)
Then another problem: I have used Windows for a long time and one of the things I noticed when I installed Mandriva was that almost all fonts look messy. Is there a way to fix this? Maybe changing the font types? Any suggestions for good ones?
