What does 'moved to the legacy support structure' mean?  Will my X600 no longer be supported by this or newer driver versions?
HHIS I should have thgouht of that!
Yes, that's exactly what it means, and it's REALLY frustrating!!!
I spent DAYS trying to figure out why my video got all messed up when updating to Ubuntu/Jaunty (9.04)
Apparently it's because 9.4 dropped support for my X1050 card!
(The open source drivers don't support TV-out, so they were useless for my needs).
Please, PLEASE, if you're going to drop support for "older" cards - open source the drivers for those older cards so OTHER people can support them!!!!!
Now I have to manually install 9.3 and hope that works.
I'm using this guide: http://wiki.cchtml.com/index.php/Ubuntu_Jaunty_Installation_Guide
I've got a Radeon X1200, and the guide says 9.3 won't work with Jaunty. How do I install this "legacy support structure" or whatever? Or am I just plain screwed? I've only had this laptop for two years, and Wikipedia says that's the age of this card too - I'm seriously disgusted that they would drop support like that, especially so soon. I'm never buying any more ATI/AMD products. --[[Special:Contributions/|]] 21:23, 25 August 2009 (UTC)
