    Do I have too many drivers installed for my ATI Radeon Mobility HD 2600? And which one(s) should I uninstall?


    I have an ATI mobility radeon 2600HD. The drivers I believe I have (ati-driver-installer-10-7-x86.x86_64.run) was downloaded from ATI. I installed it from terminal from instructions found on Ubuntu forums.

    Installed in Synaptic by search term ATI are:

    dkms-fglrx (ATI proprietary kernel module

    x11-driver-video-fglrx package. This package corresponds to ATI Catalyst version 10.9.)

    As long as you can see your graphical desktop: no. If it aint broken...
    Only one driver is loaded at a time anyway. See your Xorg logs in /var/log for more info.
