Bug Description

Binary package hint: firefox-3.0

Bonjour everybody
I bought a graphic card ATi Sapphire x1650 510 mo AGP and i can't use it in 3d. You probably know that GoogleEarth works onlly if 3D is working so i can't use Google Earth it's frustrating. i regret to have buy this graphic card.
i have installed the last driver from ATI website with catalyst and all what i got is a black screen when i restart my pc.
If i installed the driver with Envy i can't activate the 3D.
Thank you to all of you.

The proprietary driver provided by fglrx-installer no longer supports the x1k family of cards. You should move to use the Open Source radeon driver.
