Talk:Ubuntu Hardy Installation Guide

Revision as of 20:58, 10 December 2012 by (talk) (→‎eMhuswMMRjiDu: new section)

If you require help with installing the AMD fglrx driver, please consider a web forum or mailing list.


I did a little cleanup and formatting, and clarified the configuration section in Method 2. I inserted a comment about TexturedVideo on the newer cards for Xv, as well. I hope nobody minds. --Porter 08:11PM EDT 29 April 2008

I've also done a little cleanup on method two. I removed some extra steps that were not needed and rephrased some of the text so that it flows better. I also changed some incorrect statements. --Compwiz18 07:56, 22 May 2008 (CDT)

Updating a manually installed driver

Would it be good to add some notes on how to update the driver when new releases are available. I'm a little unsure of this myself; is it as simple as building the packages as per the instructions and doing the usual sudo apt-get install or is there more to it?

There is no auto-update routine as of yet. Upgrading will require a simple download, build, and install per the existing method. --Porter 02:10PM EDT 06 May 2008

OK, thanks. I should also mention I did a manual install on a clean install of Kubuntu Hardy - everything is fine but the restricted drivers GUI tool (jockey-kde) notes that fglrx is "In Use" AND "enabled". Shouldn't be any need to panic :)

"In USE" and "ENABLED" is also shown by Restricted drivers manager in Gnome after using the second manual instalation method. However, the driver works fine.

With 8-10 driver and Ubuntu 8.04 is no more necessary to disable fglrx in the restricted modules. The package fglrx-modaliases_* , in fact, provides compatibility with Jockey and in the restricted drivers window, the driver appears as present and in use. -- 16:31, 6 November 2008 (UTC)

Whether you’re starting from scratch, re-designing an existing website, upgrading for e-commerce, or developing a whole new branding package, Boss Creative will develop a custom solution to fit your needs.Let's start with a little backgroundWhen you are looking for ways to reach people that use secarh engines, you must make sure to review your secarh engine optimization (SEO). One way that this pays off for you is to review products like pay per click. Pay Per Click (PPC) is an internet advertising model used on websites, in which advertisers pay their host only when their ad is clicked. With secarh engines, advertisers typically bid on keyword phrases relevant to their target market. Content sites commonly charge a fixed price per click rather than use a bidding system.What does this mean to you?Well the long and short of it is that most programs only offer a limited resource to you. Meaning that they offer you the ability to see how many impressions and how many click throughs that you get with certain key words or ads. All this information is tracked along with the money that you are being charged for these results. You must then wade through all of this information to find out what is working and how to turn these clicks into actual dollars, which can lead to profits. Then and only then can you find a way to get a better return on investment. You will no longer be throwing money to the wind.Enter the world of Targeted PPCTargeted PPC is an internet advertising model used on websites, but this system learns to secarh for key items such as emails sent and phone calls made from the information that was found online. This information is then tracked to allocate funds to the ads, keywords and content generating the most response. For example, if you are paying for certain words and they are on a PPC program, then you are paying for each word clicked each and every time. You do not have a choice, you must pay for everything, as there is a fee associated with each word. But what if the system would learn to allocate money to the areas that were creating the emails and phone calls? Then you would be only paying for what are generating phone calls and emails creating hot leads for your business
